Veterans Day:
A Day to Honor All
Those who Served
In the United States, Veterans
Day annually falls on Nov. 11. This
day is the anniversary of the signing
of the armistice, which ended the
World War I hostilities between
the Allied nations and Germany
in 1918. Veterans are thanked for
their services to the United States on
Veterans Day.
Veterans Day is intended to honor
and thank all military personnel
who served the United States in all
wars, particularly living veterans. It
is marked by parades and church
services and in many places the
American flag is hung at half mast. A
period of silence lasting two minutes
may be held at 11 a.m. Some
schools are closed on Veterans Day,
while others do not close, but choose
to mark the occasion with special
assemblies or other activities.
Veterans Day is officially observed
on Nov. 11. However, if it falls on a
week day, many communities hold
their celebrations on the weekend
closest to this date. This is to
enable more people to attend and
participate in the events. Federal
Government offices are closed
on Nov. 11. If Veterans Day falls
on a Saturday, they are closed on
Friday, Nov. 10. If Veterans Day
falls on a Sunday, they are closed on
Monday, Nov. 12. State and local
governments, schools and nongovernmental businesses are not
required to close and may decide
to remain open or closed. Public
transit systems may follow a regular
or holiday schedule.
On the 11th hour of the 11th
day of the 11th month of 1918 an
armistice between Germany and the
Allied nations came into effect. On
Nov. 11, 1919, Armistice Day was
commemorated for the first time. In
1919, President Wilson proclaimed
the day should be filled with solemn
pride in the heroism of those who
died in the countrys service and with
gratitude for the victory. There were
plans for parades, public meetings
and a brief suspension of business
activities at 11am.
In 1926, the United States
Congress officially recognized the

end of World War I and declared

that the anniversary of the armistice
should be commemorated with
prayer and thanksgiving. The
Congress also requested that
the president should issue a
proclamation calling upon the
officials to display the flag of the
United States on all Government
buildings on Nov. 11 and inviting
the people of the United States
to observe the day in schools and
churches, or other suitable places,
with appropriate ceremonies of
friendly relations with all other
An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S.
Code, Sec. 87a) was approved on
May 13, 1938, which made Nov.
11 in each year a legal holiday,
known as Armistice Day. This day
was originally intended to honor
veterans of World War I. A few
years later, World War II required the
largest mobilization of service men
in the history of the United States
and the American forces fought in
Korea. In 1954, the veterans service
organizations urged Congress to
change the word Armistice to
Veterans. Congress approved this
change and on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11
became a day to honor all American
veterans, where ever and whenever
they had served.
In 1968 the Uniforms Holiday
Bill (Public Law 90-363 (82 Stat.
250)) made an attempt to move
Veterans Day to the fourth Monday
of October. The bill took effect in
1971. However, this caused a lot of
confusion as many states disagreed
with this decision and continued to
hold Veterans Day activities on Nov.
11. In 1975, President Gerald R.
Ford signed Public Law 94-97 (89
Stat. 479), which stated that Veterans
Day would again be observed
on Nov. 11 from 1978 onwards.
Veterans Day is still observed on
Nov. 11.

Helping Your Child

submitted by Bryan Lane,

Superintendent, Hudson School District
Once a child has begun their formal education within
any school system, developing good habits around
preparation for school and for doing homework is
very important. A child who begins their educational
experience by creating good habits will tend to continue
those actions as they progress through school and their
work lives as well. Remember, bad habits are hard to break
for everyone.
If we look at a childs job between the ages of 6 and
18 as being a student, what kind of environment does
a student need to be successful in their home? To draw
a comparison, what makes a work
environment effective for an adult in any
job? To name a few things; having the
supplies you need, an environment that
minimizes distractions, a place to work
that allows a person do what is needed,
and the ability to find resources when
they are needed. Many of us used to do
our homework at the kitchen table; it is
a great place. It is big enough to spread

in school. If they have finished it, have your child show

you the homework during the scheduled time. If they did
finish, that is great; if not, you have provided a time for
them to get it done.
If any of us is at work and get constant interruptions
with phone calls, requests for information, or loud noises,
it can be hard for us to get our work done. The same
goes for a student working at home. Depending on the
activity, some students may require quiet while for others,
music playing in the background is not a bad thing. In the
age of technology, distractions come in so many forms.
Cell phones, texting, social media, and television can all
create distractions that are not productive. If you create a
scheduled homework time and space, make it a no media
zone and have all devices turned off. Unless a student
needs to access the internet to complete an assignment,
unplugging for a while is a good thing. If this is a struggle,
you can set the example by having everyone in your home
unplug during scheduled homework time.
Helping with homework becomes more complicated
over time. Sooner or later, there will come a time when
the students homework is something a parent cannot help
with. If your child has homework you dont understand,
have them explain it to you. Most of the time if they can
explain it, they have an understanding of the material. If
there is a textbook or workbook for the class, you can
look at questions in the book and read them to see if the
student knows the material. (Sometimes the answers are
in the back of the book.) If you are directly involved with
your childs education they will be more likely to see
how important their education really is. Checking over
homework with your child is always a good thing.
If good habits begin at an early age, it will be less likely
that homework time will be a struggle as students get into
middle and high school.

Remember Hudson When ...

The Jette Farm Lowell Road c. 1950

submitted by Ruth Parker

Edmond L. Jette and Rose M. Boissoneault
married in August of 1933 and lived on the
Litchfield Road in Hudson. By 1944 their family
had grown to include five children and they
needed more space. They then purchased a
farm house as well as 30-plus acres of farmland.
Edmond was a machinist as well as a great father
and farmer. Rose took great pride in her family
and was always pleasant and friendly to everyone
she met.
In 1944, the farm, at what is now 117 Lowell
Rd., was owned by the Pelletier family. It would
soon be known to all as The Jettes Garden Farm.
Fresh vegetables were harvested and sold daily
by a large and loving family. Edmond, Rose, and
ultimately, all ten children worked hard together.
Cows were milked for cream, milk, and butter.
These items for the family were also swapped
for chickens and eggs from their neighbors, the
Maynard family.
In 1971, 59-year-old Edmond passed away.
Rose was left to care for her family and continue
the farm stand as well as operating her weekend
garage sale. Rose, in memory of her husband
and the children in memory of their father,
117 Lowell Road Jette Farm 1950
donated some of the farmland off County Road
to the Town of Hudson. Today, close to a fenced
in baseball diamond, there is a granite memorial
identifying Jette Field; a great gesture and memory
for all to enjoy. The plow on the marker symbolizes
Edmonds love of the land. In the spring of 2013,
102-year-old Fernand, brother of Edmond, threw
out the first pitch to begin the baseball season.
Over the years family members tapped from
the trees seen in front of the house. Sap was
boiled down maple syrup made by and for family

You can still drive by 117 Lowell Road and look
upon the old homestead as it stands today. The
farmland was sold when Rose downsized. Rose
passed away in 1996. Although you are driving
by the old farmland for memories, much of it has
evolved into Fox Hollow as well as Teledyne, the
memories are never to be forgotten. Thanks to
Angela Rose (Jette) Dickman, granddaughter of Rose
and Edmond, for the memories and photo of 117
Lowell Road.

Cub Scouts Wyatt Whitesell, Ryan Gasdia, and

The Word Around Town...

Letters to our Editor

Alciere Criticizes Marines

The Marines run a program called Toys for Tots, providing toys for needy
children. Businesses get asked to allow a donation box to be placed in their
building. Typically, a Reservist will make the request of his or her full-time
employer. Since the request is made on behalf of the Marines, the Reservist
goes home and changes into his or her fancy Marine Corps uniform, and the
boss is surprised to see the worker dressed that way and this puts the boss in
the mood to say yes. I was at work when that happened one time.
Isnt it kindhearted of the Marines, when theyre not busy dropping
napalm on children in Viet Nam or slaughtering children in Iraq and
Afghanistan, to take the time to gather toys to distribute to needy children?

In last two editions of the HLN, hints were provided to readers for the What is It? photo. The first
hint was that prior to the automobile, the tool was a mainstay in the transportation industry. The second
hint referred readers to the Remember Hudson When photo in the Oct. 30 edition. The following
responses were received:
Looks like a horse shoeing hammer. Jim Fisher
Appears to be an ice pick and hammer tool. Maybe also used as a gaff? Luanna Vollmer
A portable hitching post for the horses. Kathy Bouchard
Our research shows that the tool is a vintage hand-forged blacksmith-made snow knocker/snowball
hammer for a horse hoof.

of the road. We tried it once for the Memorial Day parade, and we agreed
we wouldnt do it again because we were so uncomfortable walking without
a sidewalk.
I live on Gibson o of Pinecrest. I have the same fears of hitting
someone every time I leave or go home.
Id like to sign the petition. I hope to see a sidewalk on Pinecrest all the
way to Hillcrest.
I would love to see the sidewalk near the elementary school expanded all
the way down Pinecrest!
I was in touch with the town manager who said he would help me
develop a petition. He suggested that we try to get as many signatures as
possible. If anyone has experience with paving, engineering, etc., it would
be great to talk with you about the reasons for the costs for this type of
project. Also, anyone who has experience with government grants I would
love to talk with you.
There are people who live in Litchfield who feel strongly that sidewalks
on our busier roads will make it a safer community. I hope more people can
be persuaded that this is indeed going to be of benefit to our town. If you
would like to help with this process or simply sign the petition please email

Television Returns
to Town $72,000
from Franchise Fees
by Doug Robinson
Hudson Cable Television will be returning to the town
approximately $72,000 from income received from its franchise
Cable subscribers are required to pay an additional fee of
4 percent of their cable bill, which is called a franchise fee.
These fees are negotiated between the cable company, cable
committee, and then finally approved by the Hudson Board of
Last March, the voters of Hudson approved the establishment
of a Hudson Community Television Revolving fund for the
purpose of providing community television access for public,
educational, or government use. Eighty percent of the revenues
received from cable television (not internet) franchise fees, or
other income derived from the Town of Hudson cable television
operations shall be deposited into the fund, and the money shall
be allowed to accumulate from year to year, and shall not be
considered part of the towns general surplus.
The warrant continued: These funds may be expended
only for purposes of community television access for public,
educational, or governmental, cable facilities equipment,
maintenance, renovations, or associated operating and
administrative purposes.
The remaining 20 percent of those franchise fees was
designated to be returned to the town and be allocated to the
general fund.
The 2016 financial amount to be returned to the Town of
Hudson is $72,000.
Franchise fees, according to Town Administrator Steve Malizia,
are for a period of 10 years and cannot exceed 5 percent and
must be approved by the Hudson Board of Selectmen. Should
the budgeted amount be reduced, that reduction would also
need to be negotiated.
Franchise fees are not inclusive, and should another cable
company wish to service the Town of Hudson, they would need
to negotiate with the board of selectmen as well.
The selectmen have currently determined that the franchise
fees that are returned to the Town of Hudson should remain
committed to IT infrastructure improvement.
One particular discussion has been conducted to use the
funds for the completion of the fiber optic cable that will
complete the cable loop to Burns Hill Fire Station and Robinson
No decision has been made at this time on the use of the

for the talk, having the talk and then

following up on the talk about the dangers
of drugs, building a trusting relationship with
your children, and becoming educated about
the different substances out there. According
to a Youth Risk Behavior Survey in 2013 at
Alvirne High School, 23 percent of students
admitted to binge drinking, and 42 percent
admitted to trying pot at least once.
Superintendent Bryan Lane pointed out
that equates to almost 600 students. Three
percent admit to trying heroin, which
represents 40 students. Prescription drug
misuse and heroin were also discussed.
Vasquez said to be clear of expectations
in having the talk with your child, stay
positive, avoid lecturing and thank them for
having the talk with you. Vasquez said it
is important to teach kids to manage stress
and release stress in a positive way, such as
going for a walk, deep breathing, yoga, and
ensuring teens get plenty of sleep.
Sergeant Joseph Hoebeke from the Hudson
Police Department discussed the different
types of drugs that are out there and the
trends the police are seeing. Our intention
is education. You will not be an expert
on drug detection or drug identification,
Hoebeke said. He said there are gateway drugs
that lead to further experimentation, such as
cannabis, prescriptions and inhalants, and said
New Hampshire is one of seven states with the
highest percentage of drug abuse. A new trend,
said Hoebeke, is vaporizer pens or vape pens,
and Bryan Lane said the Hudson School District
considers those drug paraphernalia. Hoebeke
reviewed signs to look for in people under the
influence of drugs.
We want to educate and prevent addiction. To
me, marijuana is a gateway drug, it leads to bigger
things, thats my opinion, Hoebeke said.

from all schools but in particular for parents of
elementary and middle school students.
HMS Principal Keith Bowen welcomed those
in attendance and introduced HMS School
Counselor Karen OBrien.
The program began with the video Alexs Story.
In the video, Alex explains how he first began
to use marijuana and alcohol before eventually
advancing to cocaine and heroin, while a student
in the Hudson Schools. OBrien then welcomed
Rosemary Smith-Berry, Alexs mother, who shared
that Alex has now been 652 days in recovery
that day, is in school full time, works and wants
to be an addiction counselor. Alex also helps
Plymouth State University Tiger Group tell his
story throughout the state.
My biggest concern when I do this are the
parents who arent here. My wish is that you
will go and talk to other parents tomorrow.
Rosemary said it is important to pay attention to
your children and watch for changes in behavior,

First Baptists Trunk or Treat

Offers a Decorative Haven
by Tom Tollefson
The grounds of First Baptist Church in
Hudson offered a place of safety from
the busy surrounding streets along Route
111. Local parents flocked to the churchs
Third Annual Trunk or Treat event with
costume-clad children in hand. Dozens
of residents of all ages flocked to the safe
family event.
Its safe here and we cant bring the
kids out by the main road because of the
cars, said Angela Biskaduros, who was
happy to find a safer environment that was
free of traffic for Halloween night.
The event included a total of 13
different opened car trunks, each one
decorated with a specific theme. Some
of the themes included football, Hawaii,
outer space, books, and even a trunk with
a lit-up Christmas tree to start the yuletide
season early. The church members at each
trunk handed out candy, toys, books, and
even toothbrushes.
Instead of going to 13 houses you
have 13 trunks with one-stop shopping,
said Terry Mostrom, church member and
organizer of the event.
While the children walked about
gathering their treats, the adults were
treated to hot cocoa, chips, hot dogs,
coffee, and water at no charge.
This is a way of reaching out to the
community and re-interpreting the
Halloween theme into a Christian
outreach ministry and sharing the gospel
message of the love of God with our
community, said Reverend Moa Imchen
of the First Baptist Church.

down to give a young child a hug or

It was a family night of fun and activities while all
enjoyed an evening of strolling as they knocked on doors

Ask any athlete and they will tell you they never want
to lose their last game of the season. Unfortunately only
one team a year can do this, and the Lady Broncos will
not be that team. After suffering a heartbreaking loss to
Exeter, the season ends and, for the seniors, their high
school careers are over. This Alvirne team has a lot
of things to celebrate, a 9-5-1 record, two three-game
winning streaks and a home playoff game, but none of
these accomplishments makes the loss any easier.
The game was a back-and-forth affair with few serious
chances by either team, and the half ended scoreless.
The second half was much of the same as neither team
could mount any serious threats. All signs seemed to
point toward overtime, which Alvirne was no stranger to
this season; however, with 6 minutes remaining, a long
ball to a speedy Exeter striker ended the Broncos season.
The last six minutes Alvirne struggled to get a chance to
level the match, but time ran out on their valiant effort.
The players were inconsolable and tears flowed as the
emotions of a tough-fought battle and long season poured
from them. Many players, mostly seniors, remained on
the field commiserating and trying to extend their season
if only for a few moments.
As the seniors contemplate their next steps, many of
them hope this is not their last school soccer game. Some
will be pursuing spots on college teams next fall, and
for them the pain of this loss may fade as they play at
the next level. You never forget your teammates nor the
struggles and successes you went through together, and,
unlike the loss, the memories they forged will never fade.

Cougars Finish Strong with a 26-0 Shutout

makes his
way through

by Mike Bourk
Contributions from multiple players on offense and solid team
defense by the Cougars led to a memorable end to the 2015 season
as Campbell blanked Raymond 26-0.
Tonight was senior night in Litchfield. Head Coach Greg Gush
recognized them by starting all seniors on defense. On Raymonds
first possession the Cougars came up big. Senior Zach Moore made
a great read on the Rams quarterback and was in perfect position for
an interception to end Raymonds first drive of the evening. After a
couple of first-down catches by Ethan Quigley, Conor Gannon went
in for the score from 4 yards out. After the game Quigley talked
about this season, This was a very emotional game for us. Many of
the seniors as well as myself have played for Coach Gush on sixth-,
seventh- and eighth-grade teams, then sophomore through senior
years here at Campbell. Its been a great experience.
The Cougars defense continued to shine in the first quarter
limiting the Rams to just 5 yards of offense on their next two
possessions. On the final drive of the quarter, DJ Simoneau once

again found Ethan Quigley

for a 27-yard gain giving the
Cougars a first and goal from
the 2-yard line. After a couple
of unsuccessful plays DJ
Simoneau hit Conor Gannon
for an 11-yard touchdown
pass, putting Campbell up
12-0 at the end of the first
One of the tactics used
by the Cougars on offense
is vary whether they use a
hurry up offense or huddle
up throughout the game.
Coach Greg Gush offered a
brief explanation as to why,
We like to control the tempo
of the game based on the
situation. The second quarter
was highlighted by a Cougar
70-yard drive. Key plays in
the drive included a 40-yard
run by Conor Gannon and a 21-yard reception by Gannon from
Simoneau getting the ball to the Rams 8-yard line where Michael
Gray ran the ball in for the third Cougar score. Center Zach Moore
and guard Adam Hayward played particularly well on this drive and
throughout the game.
Another strategy used by Campbell is rotating two quarterbacks
in the offense. This requires opposing coaches to game plan for
both quarterbacks. When asked about it Coach Gush talked about
the rotation after the game, Weve been rotating two quarterbacks
throughout the season. One is a junior (DJ Simoneau) and the other
is a senior (Hunter Hannon). Each has strengths and weaknesses and

AHS Soccer Falls in First Round

they both do a good job. Another plus for the program is that next
season the Cougars will already have an experienced quarterback in
DJ Simoneau.
The Campbell defense forced a short punt by Rams giving the
Cougars excellent starting field position. Hunter Hannon made the
most of the situation finding Gray for a 16-yard reception. Gray
tacked on his second extra point, putting the Cougars up 26-0.
Raymond mounted one final drive in an effort to get on the
board in the fourth quarter. That was thwarted by a Colin Dyer
interception. Dyer talked about it after the game, They were
throwing my way all day, I was bound to get one sooner or later.
Tonight was really a game about all of us fighting hard for each
other. Prior to the game it was announced that Dyer had enlisted
with the Marines and would begin boot camp after graduation in
2016. Following the Dyer pick the Cougar offense managed the
final three minutes left on the clock to perfection, maximizing the
time on each snap and consuming the remaining time to preserve
the shutout.

Thumbs up, two thumbs up for me. About
two weeks ago I brought up the subject of the
NFL being paid by the Pentagon to produce
events for the active military and veterans and
how sad it was that the 14 millionaire/billionaire
NFL team owners had to be paid $5.4 million to
produce half time events to honor them. Now
in the Oct. 29 Hippo is a report under the title of
Shameless that the Pentagon has now stopped
that practice of paying the NFL and will stop
paying other sports teams as well. I think its

CHS Cougars Lose in Quarterfinals to Bow

submitted by Gary Karibian
On Saturday, Oct 31, the Campbell High
School girls Soccer team was on the road for their
second-round playoff game against Bow. On
paper, this was going to be a one-sided game.
Campbell finished the regular season 10-6, good
for seventh place. Bow finished 15-1 with a
second-place finish. One of those 15 wins was
against your Campbell girls in a lopsided 4-1
Well ... on paper didnt mean much to the
Campbell girls that day. The team modified its
strategy to compete with the streaking Bow girls.
Their top player, Maddie Cheney, was said to be
sidelined due to an injury against Raymond, so
Campbell focused on Bows other top player, a
central midfielder who is already signed with BC
next season.
Campbell had something for the big, strong
and talented midfielder ... Number 8 Autumn
Thompson a small, tenacious, feisty player
who started the season as a question mark for
Coach Karibian but ended the season as a starter.
Autumn marked the midfielder right out of the
game and made her virtually invisible.
Bow did have a surprise for Campbell as
Maddie Cheney did end up playing. Surprisingly,
she played the last 15 minutes of each half, which
caused some minor changes to Campbell. Yet, it
was Thompson who once again was called upon
to act two or three years older than she was which
she did admirably by also marking Cheney out of
the game.
As was predicted, Bow sent wave after wave of

attack, but like the 300 Spartans, the

Campbell girls worked together
to defend their goal. Led by
an amazing 16-save effort by
Jamie Jutras, the Campbell
defense repelled every chance.
The Campbell sweeper Alissa
Picard had been injured late in
the season, but displayed a lot of
character by gutting out 30 minutes to
help in the effort. With Alissa out, senior Captain
Nikki Golden stepped up to the plate by taking
the reins as sweeper and did the job amazingly
well! Nikki, a striker by trade, made Coach
Karibian both ecstatic and crazy when she and
another senior, Savannah Reinitzer, revealed to
him, the day before the game, that she used to
play sweeper!
Jill Kohm, Emma Rousseau, Maddie Caron,
and Jess Manning rounded out the defenders
who stopped the Bow attack over and over again
frustrating them at every turn.
The midfield was led by senior captain Olivia
Crema who has been a powerhouse for Campbell
all season long. She also marked some of Bows
best players. She was often found everywhere
the ball was in the midfield constantly tracking
down opponents and striking fear every time she
controlled the ball. Senior Savannah Reinitzer
also played well at the outside midfield position.
Savannah made several runs up the field causing
havoc for the Bow defense. She was called upon
to defend with pride and she broke up several
Bow attacks which could have led to goals.

Caitlin Rossi and Sara Keane also played

well in the midfield for Campbell.
Caitlin is a sophomore and Sara is
a freshman, and both played well
above their ages and made the
team proud.
Campbell knew that if they
played an open run and gun
game against Bow, it might end up
similar to the previous one. For that
reason, Campbell relied on a system that played
with one striker. Senior Tasha Abelson was all
over the field creating opportunities for the team
offensively. She also worked extremely hard
defensively forcing the Bow defenders to play
more quickly than they wanted to. Erin Douglas
also played striker and she used her speed and
skill to terrorize the Bow defense. She was often
found to just come out of nowhere and create
opportunities for Campbell.
With about 20 minutes remaining, Bow found
a kink in the armor. They finally found an inch
of space and they took it. Recognizing the time
and knowing that if they lost, there would be
no tomorrow, Campbell took to the attack and
pressed forward. With about 11 minutes left, Bow
found the back of the net once again.
But your Campbell girls were not done. All
season long the team had difficulties playing a
full 80-minute game. That was not the case this
day. Campbell once again made adjustments and
pushed forward. They never stopped.
Ever since they were freshmen, senior captains
Nikki Golden and Olivia Crema made a hobby

of stringing passes and collecting goals. With 22

seconds remaining in the game, the magic wasnt
over yet. Crema grabbed the ball in midfield and
beat two players. Golden made an amazing run
and through traffic, Crema sent a ball that was so
perfect that if it were one inch in either direction,
it would have been deflected. Nikki took a great
first touch and calmly picked
her head up and, as she has done so many times
over the past four years, slotted the ball past the
Bow keeper.
Sadly, with 22 seconds remaining, Bow took
the kickoff and just hit it downfield. There was no
time for a miraculous comeback.
Like the 300 Spartans previously mentioned,
Campbell was defeated. However, like those
Spartans, Campbell gave Bow everything they
could handle in the 2 to 1 defeat. To the last
second Campbell did not stop. Coach Karibian
after the game could not have been more proud of
his girls. At the end of the game he told his team
no one likes to lose. No coach likes to give this
speech at the end of the playoffs. But I will tell
you this ... If we were going to lose, this is exactly
how it needed to be done. I cannot be more
proud of the effort you put in today. We made it
a game and we made them work for everything
from the opening whistle to the final whistle.
Today Campbell says goodbye to its four
seniors. Coach Karibian will find it very hard to
replace those four not just in regards to skill, but
in regards to leadership. Another season is just a
short 10 months away. Stay tuned for the 2016
version of your Campbell girls Soccer team!

Lady Cougars Take out Gilford in First Round of State Soccer Tournament

Staff photos by Doug Robinson

Carolyn Fletcher, #4 for CHS, watches her
PK score for a goal against the Golden Eagles.
by Doug Robinson
With Wednesdays win, the Lady Cougars of Campbell High
School are down to just three games to go for their chance to win
the NHIAA State Championship.
Fighting the wind, rain, and raw weather on Oct. 28, the Lady
Cougars defended their home turf as, at the end of regulation play,
the score was unchanged from the start.
Shoulder to shoulder, and legs fighting legs, competing for the
ball, the talented team took the game into a double overtime.
At the end of the overtime, the score remained 0 to 0.
The game came down to penalty kicks. Each team would get five
attempts, going one-on-one against the opposing goalie. At the end
of the attempted kicks (PKs), the winner would be crowned.
The first PK for Campbell was a score. It went low and to the right
of the outstretched and scrambling body of the Gilford goalie.
The first PK for the Golden Eagles went low and to the left of the
Campbell goalie. However, unlike the Golden Eagles, the Campbell
High goalie anticipated and shot like a rocket to her right, whacking
the ball inches before it crossed the goal line and saving her team

from an Eagle score.
The second and third PKs from Gilford hit the right front goal post
of the Lady Cougars, and ricocheted back onto the soccer field.
All three of Campbell Highs PKs scored a goal. All three were
low and to the left of the goalkeeper.
The final score was Campbell Lady Cougars 1, Gilford Golden
Eagles 0.
Both teams gathered to congratulate each other as the true good

sports they are. The Campbell High School Lady Cougars had
displayed not only the tenacity to avert horrible playing conditions,
but also the character, courage, respect and responsibility that all
Campbell students are known for demonstrating.
Unfortunately, the Lady Cougars fell in their match-up against
number 2-ranked Bow High School a few days later on Halloween

This past week saw Campbell Volleyball win the
first two rounds of NHIAA tournament play, and
by the time the HLN is again in your hands, the
semifinal game of the 2015 tournament will be in
the record books. With a deep sigh of hope the
Lady Cougars should be headed back to Plymouth
State for a Friday night contest for the D3 state
Lots of what ifs and lets hope in that opening
paragraph, and, for those still reading, the title
relives the 2014 trip to Plymouth. Back then the
Cougars had the same record and were stopped
by Farmington at Plymouth State, and it was also
a Wednesday night. The true difference this year
is that the opponent is Winnisquam High School
who is ranked number 4, who the Cougars played
just 20 days ago in Litchfield. The sets that game
where 25-16, 28-26, 21-25, and 25-13.
Last week the Cougars met Raymond in the
Den on Thursday the 29th, Raymond was the lastseeded team to make tournament playoffs. After
a slow start by the ladies and some engorgement
from Coach Walker, they settled into a more
serious mind set and defeated the girls from
Raymond in three sets, 25-15, 25-15 and 25-13.
Gabi Sott had seven kills with Olivia Martinage
adding seven kills and one block. Sophie Scafidi
had 25 assists from her setter position; also adding
to the match was Val Boucher, four kills, 15 digs,
10 service points and two aces. Libero Taysia
Boyson came through with 15 digs.
The second playoff game of the tournament
played on Halloween brought some exciting
volleyball to the Cougar Den. Number 8-ranked

Newfound brought a very talented team to

Litchfield and forced the Cougars into five sets,
with the home squad winning the tie breaker by
three points. Campbell had not played Newfound
during the regular season; the Bears forced the
first two sets to go past 25 points to be able to
win by the two points required. The sets were
29-27, 26-28, 25-7, 19-25 and 15-12. It would
be great to be able to explain the third set where
the Cougars dominated with the Bears only having
seven points. But it is high school sports and
things happen. Maybe it was the donuts that one
player ate after telling the Cougar trainer she was
hungry and it was making her angry; she went
on to serve six points in succession in that third
set. The breakdown of play is as follows: Taysia
Boyson, 52 digs; Olivia Martinage, 10 kills, eight
service points and four aces; Val Boucher, 20
service points, three aces, nine kills and 26 digs;
Sophie Scafidi, 55 assists and 15 digs; and Gabi
Scott with 30 kills, 30 digs and one block.
Looking forward, if Campbell prevails over
Winnisquam on Wednesday they will face the
winner of the Farmington number 2 and Sunapee
number 3 match in Plymouth on Saturday.
Campbell did not play either team during its
regular season, and the only loss that either
Farmington or Sunapee suffered this year was to
With five Cougars players, Boucher, Sott,
Scafidi, Martinage and Boyson, having been to
tournament play at Plymouth State University last
year, hopefully that experience will help set the
pace for a Cougar win and a banner to hang in the
Cougar Den.

The Hudson United girls U9 Soccer team has experienced great
strides over the past few months both mentally and physically. They
celebrated victories at their first game in Exeter, 10-0; Hampton Falls
, 7-0; and the Seacoast Express, 9-1. Head Coach Jim and Melissa
Baglio bring great energy and enthusiasm to the organization by
drawing out the players strengths, building their self esteem, and

helping them grow to understand and love the sport. Field Coach
Carrie Smith has an amazing ability to command the girls attention
and encourages them to strive for personal excellence. Goalie
Coach Scott Pellerin offered new technical skills and awarenesses
with regard to defending. All the girls have improved tremendously
and everyone is undoubtedly proud of them. A special thanks to all
the parents for their amazing support and willingness to travel.
