ROUNDUP: Swampscott’s Siefken nets a hat trick in win

Several of Monday’s events were postponed.

Rain was not an issue for the Big Blue (2-1-1), who showed their offensive potential scoring eight goals, three of which came from Greta Siefken, in a 8-0 win against Salem on Monday. 

Six different players for the Big Blue ended up on the scoresheet. Siefken opened the scoring for Swampscott off of an assist from Jesse Ford. Later it was Siefken again doubling Swampscott’s lead, this time off of an assist by Jane Raymond. 

Both Ford (1 goal, 2 assists) and Raymond (3 assists) kept creating goal-scoring opportunities for the Big Blue. Valentine Park, Mia Bailey, and Maddie Goldman also finished the game with an assist. 

Fiona Keaney, Lyla Rogers, Park, and Stella Stands all scored for Swampscott for its second win of the season. 

The Big Blue will look to maintain their momentum on Wednesday when they host Beverly.

Another win and another shutout for the Magicians (3-1), who beat Peabody in the pouring rain. 

The Magicians led 1-0 at the half thanks to a solid finish from Sadie Halpern (her third of the season).

 Then in the second half it was Ashley Mortensen who scored the all-important second goal to earn the Magicians their third win of the season. 

Saugus 5

Malden Catholic 1

The Sachems continue to score at will. On Monday, Saugus scored its first goal 40 seconds into the game when Natalie Justice took a free kick that was beautifully placed for Madi Femino to fire the ball into the back of the net. 

Then in classic Saugus soccer style, the Sachems built up play with Femino who then gave it to Shay Sewell, who unselfishly laid it off to Madison Botta to score to give them a 2-0 lead. 

Seconds later, Veronica Ortega assisted Botta for her second goal of the game. 

It was déjà vu as minutes later Ortega once again assisted Botta for her hat trick. Botta eventually got herself her fourth goal, this time assisted by Femino. 

Tori Carter made some big saves in the first half for Saugus. 


Classical 3

Everett 0

The Rams win again, moving their record to a perfect 5-0. Not only have the Rams yet to lose a match this year, they haven’t lost a set. 

Classical was in control early, winning the first two sets 25-16 and 25-14 respectively. In the third set, the Rams found themselves down 14-7. 

Behind a rally which started with an ace from Brooke Braswell and then a kill from Nevaeh Eth, the Rams started to chip away at the lead. The score got to 19-19 before Classical’s own, Emma Chevalier (22 assists), recorded back-to-back aces to give Classical a 21-19 set lead. The Rams didn’t look back and won the third set 25-21.
