Abbey Jensen and Tyler Descoteau led a strong defensive effort that was backboned by Melina Jackson's 7 save shutout. The Generals host their Senior Night on Wednesday against Monadnock.
The Boys Varsity soccer team defeated reigning Division 2 champions Goffstown Friday night in overtime.  The first half was a little bit of a struggle as the team was down 1-0 at halftime.  The 2nd half improved as Patrick Kalob scored off an Evan Caswell corner kick to tie the game.  In overtime Chase Patterson had a huge save to keep Goffstown from winning.  In the 2nd overtime, an Evan Caswell shot was redirected before being slammed home by Jonathon Rizzitano to secure the 2-1 victory.  The boys are on the road today and will return home this Friday versus Bow.  We hope to see you at the match.
