After experiencing tremendous success during the first session at Teamworks, the Bristol Cyclones have moved up to the U10 division and have recorded their first win of the new season. The squad took to the pitch on Saturday and outplayed Dighton Rehoboth by a score of 8-2.
Facing an unknown opponent on a new playing surface, the Cyclones put their first goal as a U10 team in the net at the 15 minute mark as Michaela Carvalho fed the ball to Rayna Medeiros and helped Medeiros recorded her first of two goals for the day. At the 12:42 mark, Jenna Cimbron moved up from the defense and provided an assist to Georgia Teixeira to help Teixeira mark her first of two goals. Teixeira’s second goal of the day was unassisted just a little over a minute later at 11:10. The Cyclone’s final goal of the half was another assist for Carvalho as she provided an opportunity for Sawyer Levesque to put the ball in the net at the 8:26 mark. They went into halftime leading by a score of 4-1
The squad returned in the second half ready to make history. At 17:52, Jenna Cimbron took the ball from the defensive side of the field to record and unassisted goal at 17:52. Just 50 seconds later, Georgia Teixeira provided an assist to Sarah Varrichione as Varrichione put the first of her two goals for the day past the keeper. Sawyer Levesque provided the ball to Rayna Medeiros at the 15:31 mark to help Medeiros deposit her final goal of the game. With 3:01 the duo of Teixeira and Varrichione again provided another scoring clinic as Varrichione set the ball into the net to record her second goal of the game. The Cyclones finished the game ahead of the competition by 6 points with a score of 8-2.
Offensively the team has also helped by Kerrie Larson and Sarah Jane Klein who both worked hard to move the ball downfield and pressure the Dighton Rehoboth goalie. The Defense protected the goalie (Haley Correia in the first half and Kerrie Larson in the second half) throughout the game and allowed very few shots to be taken on the keepers. Defensive duties were also held by Colleen Killeavy, Sarina Olson, Olivia Rego, Sarah Varrichione and Haley Correia.
Making his coaching debut for the Cyclones was Nelson Teixeira, the Cyclones Director of Player Development. Teixeira brings many talents to the bench. Besides being the number one draft pick during the 1981 youth soccer season, he has a tremendous love for electronics and the uncanny ability to collect a paycheck without actually ever being in the office. “Being on the bench is really neat. I feel like I’m part of something cool. I’m just glad I can see over the boards,” said Teixeira. He went onto say he missed being able to talk to his wife Dana “Fava” Teixeira, Marc “Pencil Nec” Levesque and Derek “I Know a Guy” Olson.
The Cyclones will return to practice this Tuesday at 6:30 and will not have a game next week as many member of the squad will be competing in the Kick It 3V3 World Championships at the Walt Disney Wide World of Sports Complex.
