LOLHS Girls and Boys soccer teams were ready to make a strong statement in the opening game of the season Friday night. Matched against Class L East Lyme, a school much larger than the Class S Lyme-Old Lyme, the Wildcats went in undaunted.

“We were just coming out here looking to work hard, play for each other, and prove that we can compete with bigger schools,” senior Keelin Hurtt said after the girls game. “We deserve the state championships we’ve earned.”

This determination could easily be seen as the lady Wildcats strode out onto the East Lyme High School Turf Field and put three goals past the Vikings. Hurtt scored the first for the Wildcats seven minutes into the game, closing the first half at 0 – 1. Hurtt scored again 10 minutes into the second half, leaving Lyme-Old Lyme in a very comfortable position. Less than three minutes later, there was rejoicing once again as the Wildcats broke through on goal and scored. This celebration was soon waived with an offside call from the referee, but the Wildcats still had another goal in them. In a senior to senior play, Bianca Tinnerello assisted Maddie Ouellette for a third with only 13 seconds left on the clock, marking a decisive victory.

For the boys team, the fight against East Lyme was not as easy. East Lyme led almost all the game at 1 – 0 as the Wildcats struggled to break the Vikings’s defense. The game did not wind down at all in the closing minutes as East Lyme sought to make it 2 – 0. Lyme-Old Lyme goal keeper Ryan Tetreault kept hopes alive by making a number of great saves, and finally, an equalizer came with just four minutes thirty seconds left. Peter Sherman, a junior, drew the Wildcats level with the Vikings to cap a superb night of soccer for LOLHS.
