CHS Girls Soccer Wins Two Contests

Coach Randy Grajal’s ever-improving Chelsea High girls soccer team earned a pair of victories this past week, defeating Greater Boston League rival Lynn English, 7-3, and non-league opponent Madison Park, 3-1.

In the victory last Thursday at English, freshman Yahira Jovel-Rivas turned in a superb effort, scoring four goals and earning an assist for five points on the day. “Yahira was able to get past the Lynn defense using her dribbling and speed,” noted Grajal.

Senior Captain Alessandra Campos also had a big day vs. the Lady Bulldogs, netting two goals to go with two assists. “Alessandra

continues to perform very well and has become a true leader for the team,” said Grajal.

The duo of Jovel-Rivas and Campos also provided the offense in the win over Madison Park, with Campos delivering two goals and Jovel-Rivas adding one to bring her total to 11 goals on the season.

“The team as a whole has improved on their passing and their chemistry on the field,” said Grajal. “We have had a few players step up to play on the defensive side of the field due to some injuries, including sophomore Angie Villalta-Cruz, who has done a great job playing defense during the last few games.”

Grajal and his crew are scheduled to play at GBL for Malden tomorrow (Friday) and will entertain non-league opponent O’Bryant High next Tuesday.

CHS Football Team Hosts Medford Tomorrow

The Chelsea High football team will host Medford tomorrow (Friday) evening under the lights at Chelsea Stadium. The opening kick-off is set for 6:00.

Coach David Roque’s Red Devils, who defeated Keefe Tech of Framingham last week, 12-10, will be shooting for their third win of the season in the Friday Night Lights encounter with the Mustangs. 

Two more wins for girls volleyball; now stand at 13-1

The Chelsea High girls volleyball team improved their record to a sterling 13-1 (12-1 in the Greater Boston League) and clinched second place in the GBL with victories this past week over GBL foe Medford, 3-0, and non-league rival Boston Latin Academy, 3-2.

Coach Gloria Rodriguez’s Lady Red Devils were scheduled to travel to non-league opponent New Mission yesterday (Wednesday) and to non-league rival East Boston tomorrow (Friday).

They will trek to Lynn Classical on Monday in hopes of clinching a share of the GBL crown with Classical, which stands in first place in the league with a 13-0 mark. The Lady Red Devils will conclude their regular season next Tuesday at Latin Academy. They then will await word of their seeding and first-round opponent in the Division 2 state tourney.

Strong Week for CHS Boys Soccer

The Chelsea High boys soccer team kept alive their hopes for qualifying for the post-season state tourney with a strong week, winning two matches and tying a third. Coach Mick Milutinovic’s Red Devils defeated Greater Boston League rival Lynn English last Thursday, 3-0, and topped non-league opponent Madison Park, 2-0, last Friday.

This past Tuesday they deadlocked GBL foe Revere, 1-1, a tie that was particularly sweet because it ended Revere’s hopes for a possible GBL title. The Patriots are in second place in the GBL behind Somerville, which now has clinched the 2023 GBL crown.

The Red Devils are scheduled to host Malden this evening (Thursday)  and to entertain Somerville next Tuesday, with both contests set to kick off under the lights at Chelsea Stadium at 5:30. They will travel to Lynn Classical next Thursday.

Chelsea, which now stands at 4-6-3 on the season, still has a chance at qualifying for the post-season state tournament if the Red Devils can earn six points in their final four games of the season and thereby earn the 17 total points needed to achieve a .500 record.
