Girls Volleyball Team Wins Two Matches

The Chelsea High girls volleyball team enjoyed a successful opening week under new head coach Gloria Rodriguez, winning both of its matches against Greater Boston League rivals Lynn English and Somerville by identical scores of 3-1.

Lady Red Devil Ashley Martinez started off strong in the contest with Lynn English, delivering six aces and contributing 24 assists. Ashley continued her fine play in the Somerville match, serving nine aces and setting 29 assists for her teammates.

Tatiana Sanabria Herrera also shone for Chelsea with some strong play. Tatiana led the Lady Red Devils in both the aces and kills department, recording 12 aces and nine kills vs. English and delivering 14 aces and 15 kills — a double-double — vs. Somerville.

Rodriguez and her crew have a busy week ahead against their GBL foes, starting with Everett yesterday (Wednesday), Malden on Monday, and Revere next Wednesday.

CHS Boys Soccer Hosts Everett Tonight

The Chelsea High boys soccer team will take on its archrival from across the Parkway when the Everett Crimson Tide come to Chelsea Stadium this evening (Thursday). The opening kickoff is set for 5:30. The battles on the pitch between Everett, which is the defending Greater Boston League (GBL) champ, and the Red Devils in recent years always have drawn a good crowd and tonight should be no exception.

Everett enters the fray with a 2-0 record after defeating Somerville (3-2) and Malden (6-1), while Chelsea is 0-0-1 after battling Medford to a 3-3 draw. 

With last Thursday’s encounter with Lynn Classical postponed because of the extreme heat, the lone contest for CHS head coach Mick Milutinovic’s squad this past week was a scrimmage with Phoenix Charter Academy on Tuesday in which the Red Devils prevailed by a score of 3-0.

Cristian Lopez opened up the scoring within the first five minutes, with an assist coming from a deep ball by Edwin Mendoza. Their combination marked their first contributions in their Chelsea careers. Ever Aguilar scored 10 minutes later to make it 2-0 and Marlon Rivera reached the back of the Phoenix net with a header from a corner late in the second half, a tally that also marked Marlon’s first contribution for the Red Devils.

“We did not play well in this game and could have easily won by five or six if we had brought our A-game,” noted CHS assistant coach William Estrada. “It was another game where we played how the opponents wanted us to.”

Milutinovic and his crew will travel to Lynn English on Monday and to Revere next Thursday.

CHS Football Team Hosts Lynn Tech

The Chelsea High football team will be seeking to break into the win column tomorrow (Friday) evening when new head coach David Roque and his crew host Lynn Tech at Chelsea Stadium.

The opening kick-off for the Friday Night Lights encounter is set for 6:00.

CHS Girls Soccer Treks to Everett

The Chelsea High girls soccer team will make the short trek across the Parkway to take on Greater Boston League (GBL) opponent Everett this afternoon (Thursday).

Although the Lady Red Devils came up short (8-0) in their season-opener last week vs. GBL foe Medford, coach Randy Grajal saw many positive signs from his crew.

“The team played well,” said Grajal. “We were able to go toe-to-toe with them for the first 20 minutes of the game. Our midfielders and forwards consistently challenged the ball and kept on pressuring them. We had a few scoring chances that went wide of the goal. Although Medford scored a few goals before the end of the first half, we kept playing hard throughout the whole game.”

Grajal and his crew are scheduled to entertain GBL rivals Lynn English next Tuesday and Revere next Thursday.

CHS Cross Country Teams Open Season

The Chelsea High girls and boys cross country teams were scheduled to open their season yesterday (Wednesday) with a meet at Greater Boston League opponent Malden.

Coach Reegan von Wildenradt and her crew will host GBL foe Somerville on the course at Admiral’s Hill on Monday and will make the short trip to Everett next Thursday.
