RHS Girls Lacrosse Tops Somerville, 13-6
Angela Huynh scored eight goals and had one assist to lead the Revere High girls lacrosse team to a 13-6 victory over Greater Boston League rival Somerville this past week.
Julianna DiCicco reached the back of the Somerville net for three goals. Lynberlee Leng added a goal and two assists and Mayerly Ortez scored a goal and had one assist.
Skyla DeSimone also earned an assist for the Lady Patriots.
“We struggled in the first half to find our rhythm, but started to work together a bit more in the second half,” said RHS head coach Karen Atkinson.
Earlier in the week Revere dropped a 16-6 decision to Medford. DeSimone led the Lady Patriot offense with three goals and an assist. Huynh contributed two goals and an assist and Asmaa Omar added a goal.
RHS goalie Jen Silva played what Atkinson termed a “fantastic game” with 14 saves.
Atkinson and her crew are scheduled to play at Malden today (Wednesday) and will host Medford Friday.
Comeback Victory for RHS Softball Team
The Revere High softball team overcame an early 6-1 deficit and then held on in a dramatic final inning to post a 9-8 victory over Greater Boston League rival Medford on Saturday.
After grabbing a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, the Lady Patriots fell behind, 6-1 after two frames.
RHS head coach Joe Ciccarello brought in senior Erica Anderson to the pitching circle after that and Erica pitched superbly the rest of the way, yielding only two runs and giving her teammates the opportunity to mount a comeback.
The Lady Patriots chipped away at the Medford lead, led principally by the hitting of Alexis Iacoviello, Nina Cassinello, and Julianna Raffa, and eventually pulled ahead, 9-8, entering the bottom of the seventh.
The lead-off Lady Mustang doubled, placing the tying run in scoring position with none out. The next Medford batter then lofted a fly ball to center field, which was caught by Adrianna Keefe.
The Medford runner tagged up and appeared to have reached third successfully, but Ciccarello appealed on the basis that the runner had left second early. The umpire agreed and the Lady Mustang was ruled out.
Anderson then got the final out on a grounder to end the game.
“This was a great game and a great comeback by our team, Erica came in and did a great job and our defense was solid behind her,” said Ciccarello, noting in particular a fine play by Raffa at second base, when Julianna knocked down a hard shot off her chest, kept her composure, and threw the runner out.
Ciccarello and his crew, who now stand at 5-1 on the season, were set to host Chelsea tonight (Wednesday) for Senior Night festivities and will travel to Malden tomorrow (Thursday),
Revere then will play host to the GBL Tourney this weekend, featuring all eight GBL teams starting Saturday morning, with the four quarterfinal games on the two diamonds at Griswold Park at 10 and 12.
The semi-finals will be held Sunday and the championship game is set for Monday.

Although the Revere High boys lacrosse team dropped its contests with Greater Boston League rivals Medford and Malden this past week, there were some highlights for the Patriots, notably the play of goalie Vinny Snyder, who recorded 16 saves in the Medford contests and 20 saves against Malden.
Jarrod Natola scored three goals vs. Medford and Cam Wickens added one goal. In the Malden match, Wickens scored two goals, Natola accounted for a goal and an assist, and Cam Correia contributed one goal.
Coach Zach McDannell and his crew host Somerville at Harry Della Russo Stadium for Senior Night festivities tomorrow (Thursday) at 4:00.
