Elliot Rupp led the effort for Windsor, scoring all four of her team’s goals. Her first strike came in the 23rd minute of play on an assist from Evelyn Page. Despite outshooting Leland & Gray, 9-5, at the half, the Yellowjackets trailed, 3-2. 

But Rupp continued her offensive performance with two goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half to give Windsor a lead it never lost. Page assisted on one of the second-half goals, finishing the day with two assists.

FIELD HOCKEYKearsarge 1, Mascoma 0

NORTH SUTTON, N.H. — The Royals, playing a seven-on-seven game due to Kearsarge’s COVID-19 restrictions, allowed the game’s only goal with less than a minute to play. 

Mascoma players were also required to wear face masks during play, another nuance of playing against the Cougars. 

“We had plenty of shots on goal but unfortunately just didn’t execute,” said Royals coach Jenn Hammond. “Playing an entire game seven-vs.seven, with masks on, also added another challenge.”

The seventh-year coach credited freshman Kylie Rogers’ performance in the loss. The Royals (2-3-0) face Kearsarge again this week, hosting the Cougars on Friday. 

Windsor 6, Springfield 1

WINDSOR — The Yellowjackets opened up their 2020 campaign with a flurry of goals. Hannah Wood netted three goals, Karen Kapuscinski added two and Linda Ricard had a score. 

Alyssa Slocum, Ashley Grela and Alexina Peckinpaugh each tallied an assist. Windsor (1-0) visits rival Woodstock on Thursday. 


VOLLEYBALLMascoma 3, Fall Mountain 0

WEST CANAAN — The Royals swept the visiting Wildcats, 25-11, 25-22, 25-16. 

Senior Cardigan Loupis served seven aces and contributed eight assists. And Jenna Bean added three aces to assist a strong blocking performance from Ella Shinnlinger, Jadyn Bates and Mariah David. 

Mascoma (3-0) travels to Langdon, N.H., on Wednesday for a rematch with Fall Mountain. 

Hanover 3, Stevens 0

CLAREMONT — The Marauders won in straight sets behind freshman Talia Daft’s 12 assists, four aces and three kills. 

Katie Peterson served up four aces and added two kills for Hanover, which improved to 3-0 on the season. Lyric Wilson and Emily Gammell each added three kills to the Marauders’ effort. 

Stevens (0-4) visits Hanover on Wednesday.
