Newmarket 2, Sunapee 1
SUNAPEE — In a battle of division giants, it was Newmarket who scored early, but Brynn Smith took an Abby Pollari direct kick rebound and knotted the game one minute later. Newmarket struck just before the half ended, and rode that score and momentum to the final whistle for a 2-1 win Thursday.
“While I’m disappointed that we lost the game, I really think there are some places that we needed to grow, and if we use this moment instead of hanging our heads, I think we will turn the corner toward our goal,” said Sunapee head coach Myles Cooney. “It’s up to the kids. On a good note, we had some kids step up and our collective defense kept us in the game on a night we didn’t have our ‘A’ game.”
With the Lakers suffering their first loss of the season, they will look to rebound on Saturday against Pittsfield (2-6) for a 3 p.m. game.

Sunapee 2, Newmarket 1
SUNAPEE — The Sunapee Lakers earned a hard-fought victory over an undefeated Newmarket Mules team Thursday evening.
The Mules scored the first goal 21 minutes into the game and the score held until four minutes into the second frame. Drew Nichols tied the game, sending home a rebound off of a Michael Mullen shot that hit the post. Mullen popped in the go ahead goal in the 54th minute. Parker Reed passed a clearing ball up the wing to Jackson Cooney, who played a one-time pass to Mullen on the run and Mullen popped it into the right corner of the net.
The Laker defense played a great game to hold on to the win. Goalkeeper Sean Moynihan had a super night with 11 saves.
