Rebel Review 10/1-10/8


Justin Rouhana


Football: The Rebels rode out the Mustangs last Saturday, October 13, and won by a convincing score of 44-0. The Rebels defense played extraordinarily well, holding the Mustangs to zero points and barely allowing any big plays. The Rebels high-powered offense, led by junior quarterback Will Bolster, scored touchdown after touchdown with ease, making it look all too easy. A good omen perhaps?

Field Hockey: The Porkers had a huge win over Andover on Monday, October 8, beating them by a score of 3-0. Andover, one of the best teams in the state, was tied at the half with the Porkers, but junior Brooke Matherson broke the deadlock scoring a goal with an assist from junior Caroline Feeley. The duo would score again just minutes later and Matherson would get the hat trick with the third assist being from junior Ashley Waldron. The girls also beat Weston by a score of 3-0 with senior goalie Molly Breen having a phenomenal game. On October 3, the girls played Natick and won by a score of 11-0! Matherson recorded another hat trick in the game.

Boys Soccer: Soccer had a tough week. On Tuesday, October 2, the Rebels lost to Natick 4-1 after a second half meltdown. Freshman goalkeeper Ian Fair made his first career start, making six saves in the lost. Then on Thursday, the Rebels lost to third ranked Weymouth by a score of 2-0.

Girls Soccer: The girls played Natick last Tuesday, October 2, and tied them 1-1. They played Weymouth last Thursday, October 4,  and lost by a score of 2-0. A dissappointing loss for the girls last Thursday and a hard fought battle for a tie on Tuesday has the team looking a little shaky. Keep your heads up rebsoc!

Boys Cross Country: Boys Cross Country ran against Needham and Newton North last Tuesday, October 2, and lost to Needham but beat Newton North . Senior Sean Herlihy took ninth, finishing the race first out of all the Walpole runners.

Girls Cross Country: Last Tuesday, October 2, Girls Cross Country raced against Needham and Newton North, as well, and lost to both Needham and Newton North. Junior Gina Conti took third and freshman Alyssa Murphy took 16th, improving her race time and moving her up in the rankings.

Swim: Swimming and Diving is still undefeated! They beat Newton North last week and went no score again. Keep up the good work!

Most Valuable Rebel: Junior Brooke Matherson of the Porkers is this week’s MVR. Scoring two hat tricks this week in the big wins against both Andover and Natick, Brooke  deserves some more recognition than just the personal satisfaction. Great job!
