|2010 RECORD:||Wins-6 ||Losses-2||Ties-1|
|The girls showed tenacity as they braved the torrential rain conditions and standing water on the field, but St. James proved to be better at playing in those conditions. Drew Johndrow, in goal, kept a good attitude despite the fact that she had a new diamond-d in front of her net. Hailey Beaupre played an aggressive game at the stopper position and Alana Kresley, grade 6, showed grace under pressure and seemed intent on getting the ball up to her forwards. Jess Harty's corner kicks were impressive, but only one went in off a defender's leg.|
The Cougar girls came to play on Friday in their scrimmage against Thompson. Everyone played, and everyone played well! It was a great game for Drew Johndrow and Nicole Auger who shared the shut-out. Teagan Waggoner showed some of her goal-scoring hunger making the final score 1-0 Killingly. Being a scrimmage, this victory does not go toward our season record, but it did a lot to boost Coach Maher's confidence in her team. The girls are HOME against Parish Hill on Thursday.
The Killingly Cougars girls' team brought home a sweet victory on Tuesday. Another wet game where it seemed like the opponent had more players on the field than us, but after Pomfret went ahead, 1-0 in the first 2 minutes of the second half, Teagan Waggoner got fired up.
The whole team was able to play against Parish Hill girls soccer team. The Killingly girls were on their A game with 5 goals scored! Jessica Harty scored two gorgeous goals; she is perfecting the skill of getting under the ball while hovering over it! Lillian Baah scored two goals, also; both assisted by Taylor Parnell. Alana Grauer scored one goal. There were many skilled give-and-goes and the defense completely shut down any offensive attempts. In the end, Drew Johndrow and Nicole Auger shared another shut-out. Our record is 2 and 1; that's two wins and one loss.
PS The Girls would like to specifically congratulate Lillian Baah for scoring her first two goals in America!

The first goal was scored by Teagan Waggoner off a pass from Chalei Dube. The secondgoal as scored by Jess Harty on a free kick. The third goal was scored by Beth Zapata assisted from Jess. The last goal was scored our top scorer, Jessica Harty. The diamond-defense stayed strong throughout the game helping Drew Johndrow achieve a sick-nasty shut-out. Drew stood in goal keeping her beautiful glow throughout the whole game! The Cougar girls' record is a brilliant 4-1-0. |
Kudos to Nicole Auger for initiating Breast Cancer Awareness month. The team is wearing pink socks this month and collecting donations on the side lines. At the Eastford game, $21.31 was collected. The money will be donated at the end of the month. Come support the Cougar girls on Tuesday, October 19, wear your pink and bring your spare change for Nicole's Can!

|The Cougar girls had another great game with a 2-0 win against Canterbury. The first goal, assisted by Jess Harty, was scored by Teagan, at minute 3 of the game. Coach Maher says that Teagan has a way of sparking the team and pumping them up by putting us on the scoreboard. The second goal was scored by Jess off a curving corner kick. Megan Vertefeille was perfectly|
positioned at the far post to tip it in, if necessary! True team work and offensive support and positioning. (Ask Jess her secret!) A note on Megan; oops, we accidentally gave Beth credit for a goal Megan scored against Putnam) Drew, Drew, Drew! She saved this game for the Cougars with her 20 saves; she really worked for this shut-out! Meanwhile, back-up goalie, Nicole Auger, raised another $31.68 for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Please come support the team, Nicky's cause, and see our girls in their spirited pink socks and face paint on TUESDAY, OCT 19, at 3:30. Cheer us on to a 6-1 record!

|The Cougar girls defeated Thompson again in a 4-1 victory. Jess Harty scored 2 goals; one off of a free-kick which soared from a high loft and just slipped between the crossbar and the goalie's finger tips! Her other goal was off a brilliant cross ball from Alana Grauer. Alana then went on to score her own goal assisted by Megan Vertefeille. Teagan, once again, scored|
our first goal, off of a beautiful threw ball from Jess! Once again, everyone got some playing time in this game. Two more games. Plan on coming to cheer on the girls at our last home game next Tuesday, October 26 versus the Woodstock Wildcats. Let's see if our fans can outnumber the Woodstockfans!
|The Cougar girls tied to Brooklyn with a 1-1 score. Alana Grauer took at shot toward the far post, followed it hard, and Bethany Zapata was in the perfect far-post position to tap it in! Picture perfect offense. The girls are now 5-1-1 and their last regular season game is on Tuesday, Oct 26 at HOME vs undefeated Woodstock. |
|The Cougar Girls played a hard match against undefeated Woodstock. Theresult was a loss, but Coach Maher feels that KIS "won" the second half based on how much they improved in their aggression and accuracy between the first and second halves. Sue Rodriquez, Jess Harty, Olivia Shabenas, Lindsay Glaude and Alana Kresley shut down some very skilled opponents, again and again. Drew made some remarkable saves keeping the Woodstock team to just 2|
goals. Offensively, Alana Grauer and Beth Zapata played determined, aggressive soccer showing that they really wanted to score.The girls end their season with a 6-2-1 record, losing to two undefeated teams. They will meet up with one of them again, on Monday, for the
Semi-Finals. Wish them good game!
