Sep. 25, 2019:  The Bronco turf teams are about midway through the season, and while they have had great success so far this fall, several of the teams took on some tough opponents in the past week. Here’s a look at how they fared.

Soccer

The boys’ soccer team (4-3-1) picked up a 5-2 win over Putnam Valley last week with goals by Mack Pettee (2G) and Luke Doukas (3G). The league game against Blind Brook last Friday ended in a 2-2 tie with goals by Doukas and Luke Freeman. 

In the last week, the girls’ soccer team picked up two wins, a 3-1 victory against Briarcliff and a 5-0 win against league opponent Blind Brook. Alex Doukas had a hat trick in each of those games. Also scoring for the Broncos were Lily Jebejian (1G, 3A), Kiki Tormey (1G, 1A), Maeve Sullivan (1A), Alice Vranka (1A), and Victoria Ruffo (1A). 

Based on game stats collected from Section 1 coaches by Lohud, Luke Doukas, Alex Doukas, and Lily Jebejian are top scorers in Section 1. 

The boys’ team will play Briarcliff away on Thursday, and the girls’ will face Rye Neck away on Friday. 

Field Hockey

The girls’ field hockey team has had a strong start to the season, shutting out Hackley, North Salem, Pawling, and, last week, defeating Putnam Valley 7-0. In the game against Putnam Valley, Sunday Ladas scored four goals, and Holly Ungvary, Olivia Gunther, and Isabela Fenner also contributed to the win.  

The team suffered its first loss of the season on Monday against Class A Scarsdale. In that game, tough defense on both sides kept the game scoreless in the first half, but the Raiders were able to score halfway through the second to seal a 1-0 victory. Scarsdale goalie Angela Hoey had three saves, and Bronxville goalie Caitlin Mooney had two. 

The Broncos will face Pleasantville today at home at 4:30 pm.

Football

In Saturday's home opener, the Bronxville Broncos fell 14-7 to Pleasantville in a hard-fought game. In the fourth quarter, the game was tied at 7-7 when the Broncos recovered a fumble, leaving them in good field position, but Pleasantville immediately regained possession on an interception and was able to score with just five minutes left in the game.

The football team is playing its season in honor of former Bronco Chris Thalacker, a 1981 BHS graduate who was captain of the football team during his senior year. Thalacker passed away this past summer after a battle with ALS. The Broncos are wearing special stickers on the back of their helmets to honor Thalacker’s memory.

The Broncos (2-1) will now prepare for their game against Ardsley (3-0) on Friday night at Ardsley High School. Ardsley held off Putnam Valley 21-7 last week while the Broncos defeated Putnam Valley two weeks ago by a score of 28-0. 

The next home game for the Broncos will be on October 5 at 3:00 pm against Nanuet. 

Go Broncos.
