EASTHAM — Strong performances from Nauset High’s girls soccer and football teams highlighted a busy week for the Warriors sports program.
Freshman quarterback Brendan Peno threw four touchdown passes and rushed for another in the Warriors’ 41-13 rout of Martha’s Vineyard last Friday. Senior Dillon White and sophomore Owen White each caught two touchdowns, and Logan Daniels Julien rushed for a touchdown of his own.
The Warriors moved to 3-2 on the season, bouncing back from a one-point loss to Falmouth the previous week.
The Nauset girls won their sixth straight soccer match in a 4-1 victory over Martha’s Vineyard on their home field last Thursday. The Warriors trailed 1-0 before scoring four goals in a row to seal the win and move to 9-1-1 on the year. They were scheduled to host Sandwich High School on Tuesday, having won the teams’ previous match in Sandwich 1-0 on Sept. 15.
Boys varsity soccer, meanwhile, fell to Martha’s Vineyard 2-1 on Thursday, the second defeat in the team’s last three outings. The boys were slated to play at Sandwich on Tuesday, looking to improve on their 7-2 record.
Nauset field hockey’s three-game winning streak came to an end last Friday in a 5-1 loss to high-flying Sandwich. The Knights led 4-0 at halftime and the Warriors were able only to tack on a consolation goal. The Warriors, who are 6-3-1 overall, were scheduled to play Falmouth on Wednesday.
The boys golf team, which had won two matches in a row against Barnstable and Dennis-Yarmouth, fell on the road by just three strokes to Plymouth North High School on Thursday. Nauset was scheduled to play Martha’s Vineyard and St. John Paul II on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, needing to win one of their remaining matches to make the postseason.
Will Crowell helped lead the boys cross country squad to a win over Dennis-Yarmouth on Thursday. He came in first with a time of 18:52, while the team won by a score of 23-34. Sophomore Madeline Mahoney placed first overall in the girls race with a time of 20:19, but the girls team lost 20-43.
