Bedford’s Field Hockey and Volleyball teams played consecutive games on September 11, with Field Hockey at Sabourin Field and Volleyball in the BHS gymnasium.

Field HockeyBedford vs. Tewksbury

Bucs field hockey hosted Tewksbury at Sabourin Field.  Much like the first home game, it took Bedford six minutes to put the first goal in the net with senior Cate Marcus’s score. Bedford’s speed was the key to the first half, and Bedford dominated ball control.

Coming off a penalty corner, junior Ashley Guarino bounced a shot off the Tewksbury goalie, which was then slammed home by sophomore Lauren Young with a resounding THUD, putting Bedford up 2-0.

Junior Julia Palazzo finished the first half scoring by putting Bedford up 3-0 at the halftime.

As much as the Bucs dominated in the first half, there was no “quit” on the Tewksbury’s side

The second half featured Tewksbury scoring three unanswered goals, including the game- tying goal with less than 10 seconds left in the game.

Bedford Varsity is currently 1-1-1 on the season.  Their next game is September 12 against Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School.

Normally, Bucs volleyball gets off to a slow start; however, the first set was a highlight, showing what BHS volleyball should be.  Sophomore Kristina Parenti spread the sets around the court to all her attackers including seniors Cordy Houck, Jasmin Yannix, and Amy Martin, as well as junior, Kate Winkler.  Bedford took the first set 25-17.

The next three sets had an eerie similarity with Newton South and Bedford mostly trading points before, the Lions ran off 5-7 unanswered points, taking each of the sets and the match 3-1.  Bedford suffered through a lot of unforced errors, including a high number of service errors.

Bucs volleyball’s next match is away against powerhouse Concord-Carlisle on Wednesday,
