It was another dominant week for Somers’ girls soccer team. The Tuskers outscored their opponents 14-0 in three shutouts.

Somers started the streak off by blanking visiting Brewster 5-0 on Sept. 24.

Ella Kittredge tallied two goals while Noelle DeMarinis, Megan Dineen and Caroline Russell also scored. It was Russell’s first varsity goal. DeMarinis, Kayleigh Kenny, Jessica Rodriguez and Kayla Morgante had assists.

“I feel our transitions from defense to offense have been working extremely well,” DeMarinis said. “The fact that our team knows when to play the ball to space as well as when to play it to feet is a key factor in our success.”

Rachel Ross had a quiet day in net with one save for a Tusker defense that has allowed just three goals all season.

“Our defense has been tremendous this season,” DeMarinis said. “Their ability to shut down opposing offenses is unparalleled.”

Somers 3, Briarcliff 0
Saturday, Sept. 28

DeMarinis netted a hat trick in a 3-0 win over host Briarcliff on Sept. 28.

Pepe, Atkinson and Meghan Blanch set up DeMarinis’ goals. Ross had three saves.

Cross Country

Rock Sports Cross Country Invitational
Saturday, Sept. 28

Somers’ boys cross-country team placed first out of six teams at the 12th Rock Sports Cross Country Invitational in Middletown on Sept. 28.

The Tuskers, who edged host Minisink Valley by one point (37-38), had four runners in the top 10 on the 2.6-mile course. Nicola DeMarinis (fourth, 14:57.81), Colin Brooks (sixth, 15:16.21), Peter MacNeil (seventh, 15:21.83) and Matt Reimann (ninth, 15:47.31) were the top 10 finishers. Thomas Spencer took 11th in 15:48.58.

“The key to the victory on Saturday was our pack running that we have been working on,” Somers boys cross country coach Mike Lacko said. “We have been packing guys into that top 20 of races and it helps a lot. Our one through five spread is 30 seconds on most races and it’s really helping us in big meets. The amount of improvement I have seen is unreal. We have four guys right now that our 10 seconds apart and our fifth man is right behind them too. Overall, we have 12 boys that can contribute at any given moment. Our biggest improvement has been Nicola Demarinis, who is a first-year runner. He’s running like he’s been doing this forever.”

Gabriella Parisi led the girls team in 14th (19:42.09). Katie Hill took 19th (20:07.12) and Jordan Han was 20th.

Volleyball (6-6)

Hendrick Hudson 3, Somers 0
Monday, Sept. 23

It was a tough week on the volleyball court for Somers with the Tuskers losing three matches including two that went to five sets.

The week started off with a 3-0 loss (8-25, 23-25, 14-25) to visiting Hendrick Hudson on Sept. 23.

Yorktown 3, Somers 2
Wednesday, Sept. 25

Somers rallied from 2-0 down to force a fifth set with visiting Yorktown on Sept. 25. The Tuskers were unable to finish off the comeback in a 3-2 loss (10-25, 18-25, 25-14, 25-23, 13-25).

“The girls knew if we played our game that we should be neck and neck with Yorktown,” Somers coach Kim Kelly said. “Throughout the match we continually picked up our play rather than let the previous games seal our fate. In the end, we let up a bit in the fifth set which unfortunately gave them the momentum they needed to take the fifth set.”

Pooja Rao posted a big game with 17 kills, three aces and four blocks. Julia Vitale was a passing machine with 45 assists. Ashli Ginquitti had five blocks and Sabrina Somoza notched 17 digs.

Lakeland 3, Somers 2
Friday, Sept. 27

It was another five-set heartbreaker in a 3-2 loss to host Lakeland on Sept. 27: 16-25, 25-23, 25-23, 18-25, 9-25.

“Against Lakeland, we started out a little flat,” Kelly said. “After losing the first set, we came out strong in the second and third games, executing all of our plays and grabbing some beautiful digs in the back row. Unfortunately, in the fourth set, we let up and a series of points were scored against us. We needed a little more gas in the tank to take the win.”

Rao (20 kills, 6 blocks), Delaney Killeen (21 kills, 8 digs, 4 aces) and Vitale (52 assists) led the way.

“The encouraging thing for our team is knowing that we are right there with some of the top teams in the league,” Kelly said. “With a few more weeks to practice and fine tune our offense and defense, we feel confident about the second half of league play.”
