Mother Nature Makes an Impact on Arlington
AC soccer squads celebrates Columbus Day with Cardinal Spellman.
It seems Arlington High's toughest opponent isn't even listed on the schedule as Mother Nature has wrecked havoc on high school sports lately.
She hasn't always been unkind to the Spy Ponders. Arlington's field hockey team was singing in the rain after scoring four goals against Newton South to secure its first win of the season last Tuesday.
This week Mother Nature wasn't so kind, as rain washed out Wednesday's scheduled games while turning Arlington Catholic's soccer pitch into a pond.
Last Friday's deluge delayed football a day, but you won't hear any members of Arlington High's team complaining. The Spy Ponders secured a story book win over previously unbeaten Tyngsborough, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat in the final four minutes of the fourth quarter.
Still searching for its first win of the season, Arlington Catholic hosts Saugus at 6:30 today in the Cougars' final non-conference game until their annual collision with Arlington on Thanksgiving.
With no school on Monday the Spy Ponders also enjoy a holiday with no games scheduled. The Cougars, on the other hand, have a morning meeting with Cardinal Spellman as the girls' soccer squad plays host and the boys' soccer squad plays on the road.
