JV Girls Soccer take it on the chin at FHS

The newly formed JV Girls Thunder travelled to FHS for their first game ever on Tuesday, September 16th. The girls put forth a fantastic effort but came out on the short end of the scoresheet. Next up for the Thunder is a trip to Grand Falls to take on PTA on Thursday September 18th at 5 PM.

JV Girls score first goal of the season vs. PTA

Briony Daley, on a wonderful setup from Laura Anderson, scored the Thunder's first goal of the season in a 5-1 loss to PTA in Grand Falls on Thursday. Amber Grant played a fantastic game as keeper for the squad who dropped to 0-2 on the season with the setback. The girls will look to find the win column for the first time at their home opener on Tuesday September 23rd, vs. CDJ of Edmundston. Game time is 5:00 PM on the new pitch at WHS. Come out and support the Thunder as they look for a win in the first ever home game for AAA JV Girls soccer at WHS.

Promising 2nd half moving forward from CDJ loss

The JV girls Thunder played a disappointing first half vs. Edmundston on Tuesday and trailed 4-0 due to sloppy play and an unwillingness to compete for the ball. With a few minutes to re-group at half, the girls came out strong and played their best half of the year, missing a few good opportunities to get on the scoresheet and some great play by goalkeeper Amber Grant. Although the Thunder fell to 0-3 on the season, the second half was a good showing and hopefully will lead to a full 70 minutes of play vs. Leo Hayes when they visit the WHS pitch on Thursday September 25th for a 5 PM start.

JV Girls robbed vs. Leo Hayes

A lucky goal with the wind from just inside of half was the difference on Thursday as the Thunder failed in their fourth attempt to gain their first point of their inaugural season. The girls played a fantastic game from the opening whistle until the end of the two minutes of extra time added by referee Ryan Delong. The coaches shortened the bench considerably in this one as the Thunder need a win to get into the playoffs this year, and with only this game and two next week, time is running out for the girls to squeak into the extra season. There is a huge difference in the level of play of the Thunder in just two short weeks, all due to the dedication and hard work of the 20 girls who make up the squad. Well done, girls.

Thunder Baseball advance to regionals

After an 8 game regular season which saw the Thunder work out the cobwebs with a 2-6 record, the Thunder defeated the FHS Black Kats in a one game #3 (WHS) vs #2 (FHS) playoff, 3-2 in Fredericton.
The Thunder now move on to Regionals where they take on St. Mach's out of Saint John on Tuesday September 30th. Game time is 5 PM in Fredericton at Royals Field. Should the Thunder win their Regional match-up, they will move on to Provincials the following weekend in Miramichi City.

JV Thunder barely denied first win of season

The girls JV soccer Thunder squad travelled to Oromocto on Tuesday September 20th for their fifth game in a six game regular season. Despite their best effort of the season, the girls came out on the short end of a 1-0 score to the JV Blues. The girls game has really come together and if not for a few near misses that had beat the Oromocto keeper, the Thunder would have left town victorious. The last game of the regular season takes place on Thursday at the pitch at WHS at 5 PM versus Carleton North. It should be quite a battle, with the winner moving on to the post-season and the loser done for the year.

WHS Thunder Baseball impressive season finishes

Woodstock ended their very successful season against the 10-0 St. Mac's Saints in regional action where they lost 8-7 in a hard fought game. A couple costly errors cost WHS 3 unearned runs. Woodstock came back from being down 7-2 in the last inning and tie the game at 7 leaving the go ahead runner on third. Then after 2 outs and 2 strikes in the bottom of the 7th inning a bloop single off the end of the bat ended the game as St. Macs scored the winning run from second base. With only 3 players who had played ball this past summer and many grade 9's and 10's WHS had a great run.
Top hitters for Woodstock:
Matt Clark 2 for 2 (single and triple, 1 run score, 3 RBIs)
Braden Daley 3 for 4 (3 singles, 1 run scored)
Adam Graham 2 for 4 (2 singles, 1 RBI)
Joel Everett 3 for 4 (3 singles, 2 runs scored, 2 RBIs)

(Loss) Adam Graham (2 2/3, 4 walks, 2 earned runs, 1 strikeout)

JV Thunder Girls are PLAYOFF BOUND

A complete team effort at the WHS pitch on Thursday October 2nd has propelled the squad to the playoffs in their first season of competition. With the pressure by WHS as steady as the rain that fell for the entire match, the girls were too much for the North Stars of Carleton North. Bess Teague paced the attack with two goals with singles to Brittany McLaughlin and Kylie Cheney.
The girls now move on to the quarter finals vs. Thomas Albert on Tuesday, October 7th at 5:00 PM.
An away game, WHS would love to see as many supporters as possible make the trip to cheer on the girls.

JV Girls drop a heartbreaker in Grand Falls

A penalty kick was the difference in a game that saw the Thunder outplay their opponents for the majority of the game as the inaugural season for the JV girls Thunder soccer season came to a close on a cold, windy day in Grand Falls. Woodstock badly outplayed and outchanced the third seed from Grand Falls from the opening whistle. The girls had three great scoring opportunities in the first half but failed to capitalize on any of them. At the other end, Amber Grant made a wonderful stop on Grand Falls' only real threatning play of the half.
The second half opened with a defensive breakdown in the box that saw Grand Falls go up 1 nil. Within minutes, a hand ball in the box by the Thunder gave Grand Falls a 2-0 lead as they converted on the penalty kick. A lesser team would have folded immediately, however the girls pulled it together and Kyli Cheney on a wonderful solo effort down the right side closed the gap to one goal. Woodstock missed a gift opportunity, a wide open net from less than ten feet, with only ten minutes left in the game and Grand Falls held on for the win.
Congratulations on a great season that saw the girls improve immensely.

Senior Girls Thunder season ends on penalty kicks

This year's edition of the senior girls Thunder soccer team lost in their playoff game to OHS on their home pitch in penalty kicks on Thursday October 16th. With the second seeded Thunder looking as if they would advance, a defensive collapse with less than one minute to play allowed the Lady Blues to tie the score and they eventually won on penalty kicks.
Congratulations on a successful season, and best of luck to the seniors on the squad as they have played their final game of NBIAA soccer.
