(Ipswich)  How often are their ties in outdoor track meets?  I suspect that the odds are high but that was how the girls’ part of the Amesbury/Ipswich event ended – 72 1/2 points each on Friday afternoon.

The Ipswich boys won, 80-62.

Weather conditions?  Brutal.  Constant wind with temps generously estimated in the low 40’s.  Plenty of shivering participants on hand.  Veteran spectators were dressed for snow.

Ipswich boys soccer advances in Division 3 North defeating Whittier 4-1

Ipswich (in white) put plenty of pressure on Whittier netminder Jon Hewey.

Ryan Law (two goals)

(Ipswich) The Ipswich Tigers (#14 seed) boys soccer team dominated Whittier (#19 seed) from beginning to end and defeated the visitors, 4-1, on a cloudy Friday afternoon in Division 3 North MIAA tournament play.

The Tigers (8-6-4) now advance to a First Round game with #3 seed Lowell Catholic on Sunday afternoon (1PM) at Rivier College in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Whittier (7-10-2) qualified for the tournament by winning the small division of the Commonwealth Conference while Ipswich needed to win its last two regular season games to qualify.

Ipswich, playing its final home game of 2012, put shots on Wildcat goalie Jon Hewey early and often.  The senior net minder was the reason the final deficit was only three.

The Tigers had goals from Ryan Law and David Dick in the first half.  Slater Sullivan and Ryan Law tallied in the second half.

Sean Whooley (14) chases Jacob Fudge (23)

Even though the final margin was three goals, this was a 2-1 game at halftime because late in the first half Jacob Fudge scored for Whittier.  Jacob broke free down the right side and beat Tiger goalie Erik Fyrer to the far corner.

In a one-goal game anything can happen.  Right away in the second half Jacob had a good look at the equalizer, but this time the Tiger goalie made the save.

Thereafter it was the Tigers back to pressuring the Wildcat end.  Ipswich had three corners and two direct kicks in the next seven minutes.  Slater Sullivan cashed in the second direct kick (by Sam Benford) at 29:48 to give the Tigers a two-goal edge.

Eleven minutes later (18:49) senior Ryan Law put in a rebound of a shot by David Dick to make it 4-1.

In the first half, Ryan Law opened the scoring for Ipswich (11:44) benefiting from a beautiful setup by sophomore Sam Benford.

David Dick fires a shot.

Two minutes later (9:39) David Dick struck a shot on net low that GK Jon Hewey went down for.  The shot bounced over the Wildcat goalie’s hands to give Ipswich a 2-0 lead.

The Tigers were very much in control of the center of the field most of the game thanks to the tireless, aggressive play of Slater Sullivan, David Dick, and Sean Whooley.

Busy day at the site of the game – boys tournament soccer game (2:30), girls tournament soccer game (4:15), and football game (7).

Traxler Brothers Send Clipper Boys Soccer Past Ipswich 4-2

Adam Traxler (#5) chased by Sam Benford (#10) and Peter Eliopoulos (#7).

Clippers celebrate Spencer Traxler’s go-ahead goal.

(Newburyport) Too much of the Traxlers for Ipswich.

The Tigers (2-3) were defeated by Newburyport, 4-2, in boys soccer on Monday night at Newburyport Stadium in Cape Ann League play in the Clippers‘ home opener.

The Traxlers (sophomore Adam & senior Spencer) scored all of the Clipper (1-1-2) goals, including three in the second half.

Ipswich goalie Erik Fyrer watched the action unfold in the first half, and yelled variations of the following to his defense, “Five is their best player.  Contain him.”

Adam Traxler (#5) was indeed a threat in this one every time he was near the ball.  He endangered the Tiger defense numerous times dribbling into open space and let shots fly on net with either foot.  He finally got a shot past Ipswich goalie Erik Fyrer with a spin to the left at 10:48 to give NBPT a 1-0 lead.

The Tigers didn’t have a shot on net for the first twenty-six minutes but responded to Adam’s first goal with one of their own just 1 ½ minutes later.  2010 CAL All-Star Ryan Law dribbled into the middle and then beat NHS goalie Matt Canning to tie the score.

Cole Lewis (#3) about to pull down Matt Jaeger for penalty kick.

Ipswich pulled ahead, 2-1, early in the second half as a Matt Jaeger break in forced defender Cole Lewis to pull him down in the box.  Senior Joe Baraiolo grounded the resulting penalty kick past Matt Canning’s left at 36:40.

Adam’s 2nd goal tied the score (2-2) sixteen minutes later.

Both teams seemed to sense the importance of the next goal and both had glittering chances.  Finally Spencer Traxler put his left foot on a ball that crossed in front and NHS led, 3-2, with seven minutes to go.

That goal seemed to do in Ipswich.  Adam pounced on a bad Ipswich clearout and quickly made it, 4-2, just a minute later to give the Clippers Win #1.

Joe Baraiolo strikes successful penalty kick for Ipswich.

Nice to see the scoreboard used to keep track of the time and the score.  That’s the beauty of playing in a stadium.

(I collect my own information and pictures.  Accuracy is important to me.  Mistakes are unintentional.)
