WHS sports roundup

WHS gymnasts run record to perfect 4-0

The Winthrop High gymnastics team competed against Salem at the Sterling YMCA in Beverly last Tuesday night and came home with a 130.4-91.65 victory, extending the Lady Vikings’ undefeated streak to 4-0 to start the season.

Winthrop began the competition on bars. First up was Mary O’Donnell, who turned in a flawless routine, scoring a 7.0.  “Simply put, Mary has the best form on the entire team on both vault and uneven bars,” said WHS head coach Peter Gobiel.

Rachel Farley and Alayna Ronan were next up, both hitting their routines, scoring 6.8 and 7.65 respectively. Brandi DiCicco and Danielle Carter finished their routines with their high-flying dismounts and scored 7.8 and 7.9.

The uneven bars was won by eighth-grader Megi Zogasi, scoring an 8.0 and hitting her handstand before sticking her high layout, flyaway dismount.

The vault proved to be Winthrop’s highest scoring event of the night, totaling 34.05 points for the Lady Vikings, a season’s best. First up was WHS captain Lacy Scott, who stuck her handspring for a score of 7.9. Not to be outdone, O’Donnell flew over the vault with great form, sticking her landing for an 8.0.

Zogasi, up next, completed a twisting vault, scoring an 8.4. DiCicco and Carter almost matched scores with an 8.55 and 8.5, with both flying over the table and almost into the wall. Finishing strong for the Vikings was Farley, who completed a handspring, full-twist, taking first place with an 8.6.

The floor exercise came next.  Gianna Guarino started the team off with a great performance, scoring a 7.4. Gabriella Giuffre went up second for Winthrop, showing off her dancing skills and scoring a 7.85. Farley and Ronan went next, tying each other with both scoring 7.9.

Carter pushed through her routine, scoring an 8.0. Finishing up for the Lady Vikings, DiCicco took first place with a beautiful routine, scoring 8.35.

“No matter where we go the whole gym stops to watch Brandi do her new floor routine,” noted Gobiel.

Balance beam was the last event in the competition. Both Jill Lerner and Gracie Armitstead worked hard on the toughest event, receiving scores of 7.7 and 6.9. Zogasi and Carter pushed through their routines, scoring 7.7 and 8.25.

“Danielle successfully ended her routine with a new dismount, a layout full twist, he first Viking to compete that skill this season,” said WHS coach Daria Millerick.

However, the highlight of the entire meet went to the youngest of the Lady Vikings, Alayna Ronan, who stole the show on the balance beam with the highest score of the competition, an 8.9, to capture first place.

Gobble, Millerick, and crew will host Peabody tomorrow (Friday) evening at the Winthrop Gymnastics Academy starting at 7 p.m.

 

WHS boys hockey wins, ties in NEC tilts

The Winthrop High boys hockey team earned a win and a tie against a pair of Northeastern Conference rivals this past week.

Last Wednesday evening, the Vikings hosted Medford, a new entrant to the Northeastern Conference in hockey, and pulled out a dramatic 3-2 victory.

Medford never led in the contest, but the Vikings never were able to pull away. Winthrop grabbed a 1-0 lead in the opening period on a  goal by captain Henry Brooks, assisted by Luke Evangelista and captain Tyler Mignosa, but Medford knotted matters midway through the second period.

The Vikings retook the lead before the second horn sounded on a lamplighter by Steve Holgersen, assisted by Mike Lane and Sam Yarrow, but Medford brought matters back to level once again with a marker late in the third period.

However, with two minutes to go, Yarrow, assisted by Holgersen and Brooks, reached the back of the Medford net for the game-winner.

This past Saturday the Vikings took on Marblehead at the Salem State arena and high drama once again awaited the WHS faithful. Brooks (from Noah Evangelista and Bryce Costiin) gave Winthrop an early lead, but Marblehead scored two goals in the second period to take a 2-1 advantage.

Holgersen (from Brooks and Yarrow) lit the lamp midway through the final period to bring the game back to level, but Marblehead, which always brings its “A game” against Winthrop, retook the lead with four minutes to play.

That set the stage for another thrilling  finish. WHS head coach Dale Dunbar pulled goalie Ryan Skoczylas in favor of a sixth skater with just under two minutes to go and the strategy paid off, as Luke Evangelista found the back of the Magician net, assisted by Lane, for the 3-3 finale.

The Vikings were set to face top-ranked Danvers yesterday (Wednesday) and will travel to Beverly Saturday. Dunbar and crew will entertain Scituate on the holiday on Monday afternoon for a 1:00 face-off at Larsen.

 

WHS girls hockey wins two of three

 

The Winthrop High girls hockey team won two of its three contests this past week. The summary for each game is as follows:

Winthrop 7- Cambridge 1.

The Lady Vikings hosted Cambridge on the Saturday of New Year’s weekend and skated to an easy 7-1 victory in which Winthrop poured 64 shots on net. The Lady Vikings grabbed a 3-0 lead in the opening period on goals by McKayla Norris, Emma Carleton, and Catie O’Shea and never looked back. Ashley Miles, Bella Perrotta (on a power play), and Olivia Driscoll (Olivia’s first career goal) lit the lamp in the middle stanza and Sophia Kennedy added some extra insurance in the final period.

Sabrina Dembro got the start in goal for Winthrop and earned her first career victory.

“Sabrina was terrific,” said WHS head coach Anthony Martucci. “She is a senior who is a tireless worker and works very hard at practice. She has improved immensely in her short time between the pipes.

“Olivia Driscoll scored one of the prettiest first career goals I have ever seen,” added Martucci. “She walked out of the corner and placed the puck top-shelf, short-side over the goalie’s shoulder. It was a tremendous play.

“Bella Perrotti and Abby Stafford have been unreal since day one of the season, I do not think there is a better pair of defenseman in the state,” continued Martucci. “Emma Carney and Olivia Holmes have played really well for us, and given us some much needed depth and intelligence on the back end. Kayla Morrill, who has changed her normal position from forward to defense, has been terrific as well. She brings it every single shift and that is all a coach can ask for.

“As for our forwards, the passing has been great, and the chemistry is pivotal to our success,” added Martucci. “Mikayla Norris and Catie O’Shea are leaders by example and it has shown right from the start of the season.”

Winthrop 6-Marblehead 4

The Lady Vikings engaged in what Martucci termed “an all out war with Marblehead” last Wednesday at Larsen and prevailed, 6-4.

The contest was a see-saw battle all the way, with the difference-maker being the Winthrop power play, as the Lady Vikings converted on four of their five extra-skater opportunities.

Abby Stafford scored two goals and single tallies came from Catie O’Shea, Grace Carleton, McKayla Norris, and Ashley Miles.

The Lady Vikings held leads at each of the junctures (3-2 after one period and 5-4 after two), as the visiting Lady Magicians refused to allow Winthrop to pull away.

Summer Tallent played net for the Lady Vikings and turned in a superb performance, making 28 saves for her third win of the season.

“Ashley Miles’s goal was beautiful,” said Martucci. “She broke in alone from the blue line in, and put the puck top shelf where grandma hides the cookies.

“Grace Carleton scored a gritty power play goal after fending off a defender in front and slamming home a rebound,” added Martucci. “When Grace scores, the team seems to rise up big time. She is such a heart-and-soul player that the team rallies around her, and loves to see her score.”

Masconomet 5-Winthrop 2

The Lady Vikings suffered their first loss of the season with a 5-2 defeat to Masconomet Regional in a contest played this past Saturday in Haverhill.

Winthrop got the jump on the Lady Chieftains when Norris fed a nice pass to Gemma DiMento for a bang-bang goal just 1:40 into the game.

However, Masco responded with two markers in the first period and added two

more unanswered tallies in the middle frame to take a 4-1 advantage into the final 15 minutes.

WHS net minder Tallent was immense in the second period, turning aside numerous Masco scoring opportunities to keep Winthrop in the game. Tallent was at her best when she thwarted Masco’s leading scorer, Charisse Flanagan, on a penalty shot.

“Summer made an incredible save on the penalty shot,” said Martucci. “To get a stop like that from an eighth grader was insane”.

Masconomet retreated into defensive mode in the third period. DiMento added her second lamplighter of the game, but it proved too little, too late.

“As a team it was a disappointing loss, because it directly affects what had been one of our goals this season, which was winning the conference,” said Martucci. “With that loss we will need to win all of our remaining conference games and get help”.

Martucci had high praise for freshman Gemma DiMento, “who has been terrific since day one,” said the coach. “I would be lying if I said that I did not know that Gem was going to be as good as she is, having coached her before. I know that she is a special player — just an awesome hockey player. She just knows how to play the game and has a tremendous skill set.”

Martucci and his crew will host Bishop Fenwick tonight (Thursday) at Larsen. The opening face-off is set for 6:00. They will trek to Beverly Saturday and entertain Waltham Wednesday evening.

 

WHS boys basketball splits two contests

 

The Winthrop High boys basketball team split its two games the past week, dropping a hard-fought 59-53 decision at Malden Catholic, but then rebounding for a 74-51 triumph over Maimonides.

The Vikings had defeated Malden Catholic by an 80-65 decision in their first meeting of the season, but the Lancers turned the tables on their home court.

The first half was a proverbial see-saw battle that featured 12 lead changes before MC carried a 32-26 advantage into the locker room.

The Lancers enlarged their lead to as many as 12 points after the intermission, but Winthrop went on a nine-point run, sparked by three-pointers by Devin Pulsifer and Tayjuan McKenzie, to pull within 53-52 with two minutes to go.

However, the Vikings could not get over the proverbial hump, despite having multiple chances to forge into the lead. In the final minute, Winthrop missed a shot on one possession and had a turnover on the other.

Malden Catholic on the other hand, sank a big three-pointer with 20 seconds to go to put the game out of reach. Pulsifer paced the Vikings with 21 points and McKenzie hit for 16.

“We had plenty of opportunities late in the game to take the lead, but couldn’t come up with the big play offensively,” said WHS head coach Dave Sacco. “We’re just too inconsistent at times on both ends of the floor. I continue to stress that we need to play good basketball for all 32 minutes. I love that we battled back after being down double digits, but we have to close the deal when we get it to a one possession game.

The next night the Vikings hosted Maimonides. After a sluggish start, in which Winthrop held a slim 20-19 edge after one period, the Vikings stiffened defensively in the second frame to move out to a 37-29 lead at the half.

“At times we got the lead to double digits, but couldn’t build on that, which can be concerning,” said Sacco, who was not pleased with his team’s first-half effort. “It’s a matter of buckling down defensively and getting stops when we need them.”

Winthrop came out firing on all cylinders after the intermission, outscoring Maimonides 29-10 in the third period to take a commanding 65-39 advantage.

The visitors never threatened thereafter as Winthrop claimed a 74-51 victory. Pulsifer led the Vikings with 23 points and McKenzie struck for 17.

Sacco and his crew were set to travel to Salem this past Tuesday and will host Danvers Friday. They will play Somerville next Tuesday.

Friday’s encounter with Danvers could be quite eventful. Devin Pulsifer is just 36 points shy of reaching the 1000 point plateau and could join that elite club before a home crowd that night.

 

WHS girls track defeats Saugus

 

The Winthrop High girls track team defeated Saugus, 57-28, this past week.

First place finishers for the Lady Vikings were: Isabella Mahoney in the high jump with a leap of 4’-8”; Mary Kate Pote with a shot put toss of 27’-10”; Danielle Zanelli in the hurdles in 8.3; Sofie LaFratta in the 600 in 2:17.3; Gabrielle Hinchion in the mile in 7:21.2; and Camilla Llovera-Miranda in the two-mile in 13:22.

Scoring three points for the Lady Vikings with second-place finishes were: Kim McDuffee with a high jump of 4’-4”; Isabella Mahoney in the 50 dash in 7.0; Alex Gibbons in the 300 in 53.4; Catherine Zuffante in the 600 in 2:24.6; Gabriella Ford in the 1000 in 4:01.3; Devin Barry in the mile in 7:40.9; and Anyra Silva in the two-mile in 15:04.

Third-place points were earned by: Gabrielle Hinchion in the shot with her throw of 24’-0”; Clare Nargi in the hurdles in 9.2; Steph Strangie in the dash in 7.1; Hannah Capone in the 300 in 58.6; Katherine Thano in the 1000 in 4:18.3; and Isabella Skomro in the two-mile in 16:22.

The girls were scheduled to take on Swampscott yesterday (Wednesday) and Salem on Tuesday.

 

Boys track tops Saugus

 

The WHS boys track team handily defeated an undermanned Saugus squad, 69-9, last week.

First-place finishers for the Vikings were Kim Haddar in the high jump, A.J. Mass in the shot put, Pat Haskell in the hurdles; Bobby Hubert in the dash; Rin Gyincovci in the 300; Mark Goudge in the 600; Cormac MacPhail in the mile (4:57.6); and Michelangelo Marcoccio in the two-mile.

Second place performances came from: Julian Osorio in the shot; Cody Wojcik in the hurdles; Jaidon Brown in the dash; Andreas Simon in the 300; Matt Skoboleff in the 600; Renals Cahani in the 1000; and Rodrigo Freitas in the mile.

Third-place points were contributed by Mike Morano in the shot put, Mateo Alzate in the dash, and Marcus Ferreida in the 1000.

The boys were scheduled to take on Swampscott yesterday (Wednesday) and Salem this coming Tuesday.

 

Calvin Tufa receives ALEXANDER trophy

By Cary Shuman

Winthrop High football player Calvin Tufa received the Irving P. Alexander Memorial Trophy at a Rotary Club of Belle Isle Luncheon at the Winthrop Arms.

The Rotary Club of Winthrop had annually presented the award to the graduating Winthrop High football player who has dedicated himself the most to the program during his football career. When the Winthrop club merged with the Revere and East Boston Rotary clubs, the Belle Isle club opted to continue the Alexander Trophy tradition.

WHS head coach Sean Driscoll joined Rotary Club members in presenting the award to Tufa, who was accompanied by his proud parents, Genci and Marinela Tufa.

“I’m honored that I received this award,” said the 18-year-old Tufa, whose family is originally from Albania. “I’m proud of the hard work and dedication that I put in the last four years to the program and it’s an honor.”

Tufa was a starting noseguard and tackle his sophomore and junior seasons and moved to left guard and defensive end in his senior season. He was a Northeastern Conference and Daily Item All-Star selection. He remembers being on the sidelines as a freshman when the Vikings stormed to a 10-0 record (before losing to Lynnfield in the playoffs) with Dylan Driscoll (coach Driscoll’s son) leading the offense at quarterback.

“That team and those players motivated me to become a football player like they were,” said Tufa.

 

The 6-foot-, 250-pound senior captain praised coach Driscoll for setting a great example for all the players with his dedication and commitment to the football program.

“Coach Driscoll was a positive influence over the past four years and he’s the man who inspired me to always play hard and to enjoy the sport of football,” said Tufa. “He made me the player I am today.”

Tufa has applied to several colleges including the University of Central Florida, Merrimack, UNH, and Springfield College. He hopes to study Exercise Science and continue his football career.

Tufa was asked about the team’s controversial decision to play their final game at the new Miller Field on Thanksgiving, turning down an invitation to play Revere at historic Fenway Park.

“As a senior class, we had a choice between Fenway or Miller Field, I think the obvious choice was Miller Field because we wanted to play our last game at home for the first time in two years,” said Tufa. “There was a great crowd and we felt the energy. Everything about that day was fantastic except the outcome of the game (a last-minute 17-14 loss to Revere).”

Tufa thanked the Rotary Club for its award presentation and his parents for their support of his athletic career. He has two sisters, Fatma, a WHS junior and Mia, 8.

“Fatma is a three-sport athlete, volleyball, basketball, and lacrosse,” he said. “Mia has played soccer.”

Number 16

The tradition continues for Viking athletes, the families continue to send outstanding athletes to Miller Field and Larsen Rink.

Anthony ‘Touchdown Tony’ Palmer, established many records on the gridiron and on the ice. He follows his brothers Chris and Michael –‘The Palmer Legacy.’ Anthony started as a freshman on the gridiron and when he finished his illustrious career – “Touchdown Tony” scored 195 points in 1993 – a two time Boston Herald All-Star and two-time Lynn Item MVP.

His number was 16 and he also followed one of the Vikings greatest all-time athletes hockey and baseball. He finished his career on the ice for the Boston University Terriers – Charles J. Chucy Sullivan.

The next Viking All-Scholastic football player – was Viking quarterback Anthony Fucillo. A Boston Herald All-Scholastic quarterback – he played at Division One Colgate University and transferred to Tufts University to establish many records for the ‘Jumbo’s’. Anthony is now assistant coach at Harvard University.

In 2016, Charlie Page was a Boston Globe All-Scholastic player on the ice for coach Dave Dunbar’s hockey sextet. Charlie wore #16 on the ice and followed his big brother Chris the NEC MVP. Chris (Buddy) Page is asst. captain for Stonehill College.

Charlie is playing for ex-Viking Jon Lounsbury for the – Walpole Express. Charlie Page wore number 16.

In 2017- 2018, the next Viking superstar player could be Frosh Joey Holgersen. Young Joey is skating with ‘Big Brother’ co-captain Steve Holgersen for the Vikings. The ‘tradition continues’ Joey is wearing number 16, a Viking hockey tradition.

Chris Costonis on the 1972 – MIAA – record of three goals scored in 29 seconds to win the games vs. Lynn English at the legendary Lynn Arena (4-3).

 

Behind the Blue Line

The 2017-2018 Vikings hockey team is loaded with talent! Can they put it together; have great chemistry pass like many Dunbar championship teams?

The league is loaded with good teams and with the expansion of GLB teams (like a good Medford team, coached by ex-Boston Bruin Shawn Bates) there are plenty of good teams. Danvers and Marblehead have had championship seasons in the past few years.

When I think of the rivalry with the Magicians, it goes back to the 70’s, when Winthrop and Marblehead were the top two teams on the North Shore.

The rivalry started in 1972 a Viking team with the high scoring trio of Mike Eruzione, Chris Costonis and Stephen Christopher. I was at Lynn Arena to watch Costonis score three goals in 29 seconds (a MIAA record) the defense had Johnny Pedoto, Eddie Rossi (Harvard captain), Mark DeGregorio and Chuck Flanagan. The 1974 team reached the Boston Garden to play champion Malden Catholic. I broadcast the game and Kevin Costonis hit the post two times! Final score (MC 4 – WHS 2).

The 1976 team won the Division One State title (26-0-1) the line of Bobby McDonald – Joey McDonald and Jackie Burke, scored 212 points – tops on the state. ‘Bobby Mac’ played at Harvard. Jackie Burke played at Harvard. Can Marblehead or Danvers ever match some of the great Viking teams?

The 2018 Vikings will play Danvers (last years champion) at Larsen Rink on Wednesday (yesterday) I will see my first Viking game due to my operation. I will give my views on another strong Dale Dunbar sextet.

Winthrop Hockey Capitol of the North Shore! Marblehead and Danvers do not have teams to match Viking championship teams!

Let the Games Begin!

 

 

The New Era of Viking Hoop

The start of the 2017-2018 Winthrop high school hoop season kicked off on June 22nd.

The dedication of the Chris Tsiotos Court filled the new gym at WHS in honor of Mr. Basketball – Chris Tsiotos WHS Class of 1973.

Big Chris was the first WHS 1,000 point scorer. AT the ‘legendary old Boston Garden WHS lost a two-point decision to Rindge Tech of Cambridge. Captain Chris number 33 averaged 28.5 per game to establish a new NEC scoring record. His 50-point game is a NEC record.

Chris sat on the bench in the final game of the Tech Tourney Championship game. He had mononucleosis – Mono and could not play in the game. WHS would have captured the State Tech Tourney crown in the 1972-1973-1974-1976 seasons – the Vikings under the tutelage of legendary coach Henry McCarthy. Winthrop was the ‘Hoop Capitol of the North Shore. The Tsiotos brothers Nick and Chris, all-star Steve Mahoney (all-time assist champion). They defeated teams like Swampscott (Vikings broke a 50-game home win streak). Chris scored 40!

WHS won state titles in 1995 under the late Peter Grimes in 2011 under the outstanding coaching of David Brown and than the program hit rock bottom of the NEC.

The Winthrop Vikings boys and girls teams have captured 38 NEC titles. (What school can match that?)

David Sacco was named new Vikings head coach in June. We hope he can rebuild the illustrious Vikings program.

We hope to see a championship team to play on the Chris Tsiotos Court.

Go Vikings!

Let the Games Begin!

 

Extra Points

Congrats to ex-Viking baseball standout – 1984 NEC MVP Jimmy Adamson. Big Jim has been inducted into the Inter-City League Hall of Fame. Jimmy played 20 years in the legendary summer baseball league.

Jimmy was a standout end on the 1983 super bowl champions (Undefeated) that defeated Xaverian (14-3) at Foxboro Stadium.

Jimmy is currently watching his son Jake Adamson, co-captain of the 2018 Vikings hockey team. Proud parents Jimmy and Helen have another great honor for one of t heir sons (Brian, Michael and Kevin).

Batter Up!

Congrats Jimmy!

Hit-em Long!

 

 

Coach Tom Thibs

I watched the Celtics play the Minnesota Timber Wolves last night at the TD Garden. I watched the game with Mr. Basketball in Winthrop Chris Tsitos (not Christopher).

Tommy T. played at Salem State (The Vikings) with former Salem/Bishop Fenwick all-star Steve Mallios (Dad of the all-time leading hoopster) in WHS history Dino Mallios (1,475 points). “Coach Thibes” was assistant coach of the 2008 Boston Celtics World Champions, under the tutelage of Glenn ‘Doc’ Rivers.

Coach Thibs coached the Chicago Bulls and is head coach at Minnesota. Another North Shore hoop story out of the Campus of Salem State University.

I used to have Salem State as an account for my company. When I enter the Rockett Arena to watch the Vikings play, I think of the big game the Winthrop Vikings under the guidance of coach David Brown lost a championship game.

I had my office in the new business center back in 1999.

I think I will take a trip to Pickering Wharf for a dinner at ‘Finz’. I have many memories of the great City of Salem.
