NORTH EASTHAM – Nearly a month after the Monomoy girls varsity field hockey team dominated Nauset in a 4-1 victory, the teams were back at it. From the outset it was clear that Monomoy was looking for another win, but this time the Warriors put up a solid fight, with game play on Oct. 4 ending in a scoreless tie. Monomoy nearly knocked the ball in several times during the late afternoon outing, the first when ...

HARWICH – The Monomoy boys soccer team hoped that a 4-1 victory against St. John Paul II on Oct. 1 would turn things around, but their season of struggle continued last week with a tough 3-1 loss to Sandwich on Oct. 3, putting the pressure on the Sharks regarding upcoming games as they compete for a spot in the playoffs. Although the home team Sharks controlled a fair amount of the on-field action as game play...

HARWICH – There's a saying that Saturdays are for the boys, but Oct. 5 didn't prove to be a promising Saturday for the Cape Tech football team, which fell 45-8 to South Shore Vocational. With team numbers greatly diminished due to injuries and other issues, the Crusaders were no match for the sizable Vikings in spite of some decent passing and ground play during a decidedly chippy game. It took Cape Tech un...

HARWICH – The effort was there, but when the Cape Tech boys varsity soccer team hosted Upper Cape Tech on Sept. 26, the goals weren't, as both teams played to a scoreless tie in Mayflower League action. The Crusaders—who have been having a stellar 2019 season with the exception of one early season loss—dominated much of game play, consistently moving the ball into scoring territory, but neither team was able t...

HARWICH – When the Cape Tech girls soccer team fell 5-0 to Sturgis East on Monday afternoon, some might have chalked it up to just another loss for the Crusaders. Not head coach Matthew Theodore. For him, it was a sign of improvement. Theodore, in his first season with the Crusaders, said that in the past the teams lost by scores of 10-0 or more. This season, in spite of a decidedly younger team, many of whom ...

SOUTH YARMOUTH – When a handful of Nauset boys soccer players took part in the Kenny Kup this summer and were asked what their aim was for the coming school season, they made it clear they were after another state championship. Since then the Warriors have gone on to defeat each of their opponents en route to an undefeated record that was boosted once again after a 5-0 shutout against D-Y on Sept. 19. Five sep...

By: Kat Szmit

SOUTH YARMOUTH – When the Monomoy girls traveled to South Yarmouth to face the D-Y Dolphins on Sept. 23, the scoring started with a penalty kick and ended with a goal that dropped in as the final whistle blew, but sadly for the Sharks, the win belonged to the home team Dolphins. “I feel like we have a young defense and we struggled to deal with their offense,” said Monomoy head coach Jenn Peterson. “They have ...

Nauset Football Shuts Out Monomoy In 42-0 Rout

By: Kat Szmit

HARWICH – When the Nauset Warriors faced the Monomoy Sharks in football action on Sept. 20, some might have called their 42-0 victory the Bobby Joy show. They wouldn't necessarily have been wrong, as Joy was in top form throughout the contest, but he had a more little help in the win. After the Sharks failed to move the ball into scoring position during the opening possession, Joy scored the first touchdown of...

HARWICH – Holly Evans was ready. After all, she'd been practicing taking a penalty stroke for years. If there were any nerves, they were quickly erased when the referee's whistle sounded, prompting Evans to get low and fire the ball hard, and when it hit its mark, bouncing off the back of the Nauset goal box, Evans, her teammates, and a big crowd of Monomoy fans erupted into excited cheers. The Sharks had defe...

HARWICH – It wasn't pretty, but the Sharks got it done, defeating crosstown rival Cape Cod Tech 16-6 in overtime on Sept. 14 for the football team's first win of the 2019 season. With the game tied at 6-6 as the final whistle blew, Monomoy won the overtime toss, with the Sharks kicking off the two-minute OT quarter on Cape Tech's 20-yard line. As quarterback Noah Concordia fired a pass into the end zone, Elija...

By: Kat Szmit

HARWICH – The Monomoy boys varsity soccer team played to a 1-1 Cape and Islands League tie against Sturgis East in their first home game of the season in a game with little spark on Sept. 12. Sam Higgins scored the lone goal for the Sharks at 22:44 in the first half, breaking through a scrum in front of the Storm net. Unfortunately for the home team, East found its way to the scoreboard in the second half, the...

HARWICH – The Monomoy girls varsity field hockey team has opened its 2019 season in a big way with impressive victories against Barnstable and Dennis-Yarmouth. The team's captains, who have played together for four years, say it's all about determination and connection. Making key connections on the field led Monomoy to a thrilling 2-1 victory on Monday afternoon in South Yarmouth as the Sharks upset the defen...
