By HockomockSports.com Staff

Taunton junior Kaysie DeMoura has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for June 13 through June 19. DeMoura is the 34th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the 10th of the spring season.

DeMoura stepped into a bigger role this season, as the starting catcher for the Tigers, and helped Taunton retain its Div. 1 state title. With a home run in the Elite Eight, two homers in the state semifinal, and an RBI in the final against Peabody, DeMoura provided the offensive punch for the Tigers during their postseason run, while also handling her duties behind the plate. It was Taunton’s second straight state title, third in the past four seasons, and seventh since 1997.

In the quarterfinal round against Central Catholic, DeMoura smacked a solo homer to get the scoring started in a 6-2 win. In the semifinal at Worcester State’s Rockwood Field, DeMoura came through again with a pair of homers and three RBI. She put the Tigers in front in the first with a towering fly ball to left that kept carrying all the way to the fence, clipping the top of the wall on its way over to make it 2-1. After Methuen got back within one at 3-2, DeMoura answered by crushing a solo shot to left for what turned out to be the game-winning run. Against Peabody in the final, DeMoura, who was DP on last year’s title-winning team, got the Tigers off and running with a sac fly in the third.

By HockomockSports.com Staff

Foxboro junior Paige Curran has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for June 6 through June 12. Curran is the 33rd player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the ninth of the spring season.

After scoring nearly 100 points in the regular season (and reaching the 100th point and 100th goal of her career), Curran was on fire in the playoff opener. Foxboro were the heavy favorite against Stang and played liked it, winning 21-4. Curran scored four goals of her own and dished out seven assists to lead the Warriors to the win. In round two, Foxboro got off to a tough start against a good Hanover team but battled back to grab the lead before halftime and pull out the win in a defensive battle. Curran scored three goals and had two assists, accounting for five of the team’s seven goals in the Round of 16.

Player of the Week: Nick Clark, Oliver Ames Baseball

Nick Clark
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Oliver Ames senior Nick Clark has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 30 through June 5. Clark is the 32nd player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the eighth of the spring season.

Clark threw a gem in the playoff opener for the Tigers on Friday evening against Amherst-Pelham. The senior lefty struck out 15 batters and allowed just one hit over 6-2/3 innings, helping OA pull out a 2-1 victory and advance to the Div. 2 Round of 32.

Clark got off to a quick start, striking out the side in the first and the third innings and retiring the side in order in the fourth with another strike out. He allowed his only hit of the game, which was played at Taunton High because of graduation preparations at Frothingham Park, in the fifth but quickly erased the base runner by picking him off at first. Clark struck out the side again in the sixth and added two more in the seventh. He just missed on a pair of pitches to close out the game, issuing his third walk and reaching the pitch limit with one out to go. Patrick Finnerty came in to relive him and Nathan Carpentier ended the game by picking the runner off at second. Clark finished the regular season with a 3-3 record and 50 strikeouts in 34-1/3 innings.

Simone Dunbar
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Sharon senior Simone Dunbar has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 15 through May 21. Dunbar is the 31st player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the seventh of the spring season.

Dunbar was a standout at this past weekend’s Hockomock Outdoor Track Championships at King Philip, bringing home a pair of individual titles and finishing second in a third event. The senior sprinter helped the Eagles pick up 46 points as a team and finish in a fifth place tie with the hosts.

In the 100-meter hurdles, Dunbar improved on her 2021 time by half a second to take first. She finished in a time of 15.47, which was more than a second faster than her closest competitor. Dunbar also repeated as the triple jump champion, with a leap of 37-02.00. She jumped more than two feet further than the second-place finisher and matched the distance that she jumped to win the title in 2021. In another repeat from last year’s event, Dunbar took second in the long jump, finishing behind Milford’s Kiyanni Simas. Dunbar had a jump of 17-08.25, three inches behind Simas and two inches further than she jumped at the 2021 event.

By HockomockSports.com Staff

Attleboro senior Ella Lynch-Bartek has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 9 through May 15. Lynch-Bartek is the 30th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the sixth of the spring season.

Lynch-Bartek kept up her strong senior season on the court by helping the Bombardiers win three matches last week, including a win over league-leading Franklin. With its win streak, which extended to five matches on Monday, Attleboro has booked a place in the state tournament.

“Ella has been playing some dominating tennis this season,” said Attleboro head coach Bill Reilly. “She’s winning in straight sets and really showing why she’s one of the top first singles players in the Hock. Ella’s had a fantastic run as our first singles player since her freshman year and we wish her the best at Holy Cross”

After a loss at No. 1 singles against Canton the week before (in a match that Attleboro won 3-2), Lynch-Bartek bounced back with three straight wins, giving the Bombardiers points at first singles against Franklin, Mansfield, and Milford. On Monday, Attleboro split the season series with Franklin, picking up a 4-1 team win and Lynch-Bartek added a point. The following day, she added a 6-0, 6-2 victory as Attleboro won 4-1 against the Hornets. In her third match in three days, Lynch-Bartek dropped only one game in a win against Milford that clinched a postseason berth.

By HockomockSports.com Staff

Mansfield senior Jimmy Gilleran has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for May 2 through May 8. Gilleran is the 29th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the fifth of the spring season.

Gilleran’s walk-off homer against Oliver Ames capped a three-win week for the Hornets, which extended Mansfield’s win streak to seven games. Gilleran played a role in all three wins, as the Hornets beat Canton in five innings, battled back to beat Attleboro in extra innings, and then ended the week with a win over the Tigers.

“Jimmy has been an exceptional two way player for us this year,” said Mansfield head coach Chris Hall. “He dominated the offseason and continues to make the proper adjustments to take his game to the next level. Jimmy has had a variety of accomplishments this season, but his walk-off home run against Oliver Ames is one we will never forget.”

Against OA on Friday, Gilleran got the start for the Hornets and allowed four runs (three earned) in the opening inning. He would throw six scoreless from that point, striking out nine and giving up five hits, allowing Mansfield to fight back. After the Hornets got two in the third and two more in the fifth to tie it, Gilleran deposited a homer over the left field fence to earn the 5-4 victory.

Player of the Week: Aislinn Bennett, Milford Lacrosse

Aislinn Bennett
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Milford senior Aislinn Bennett has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for April 25 through May 1. Bennett is the 28th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the fourth of the spring season.

Bennett has been off to a torrid start to the season, leading the Hawks in scoring and helping them to a 5-3 record through the opening eight games. Milford is already over halfway to equaling its best win total since entering the Hockomock League (eight wins in 2014). In Milford’s two wins last week, Bennett scored 12 times. Through Monday, she has over 40 goals on the season.

The Hawks started the season with six road games, but came through that stretch with a .500 record. After a 15-5 win over Attleboro, which include seven goals from Bennett, Milford had to wait two weeks before getting back on the field but showed no rust in scoring 11 first half goals and holding off Sharon 17-12. The Eagles had no answer for Bennett, who finished with eight goals to pace the Milford attack. Following a tough loss at Oliver Ames, Milford bounced back in its home opener to earn an 11-8 non-league win over Norwood. Bennett was in the middle of things again, scoring a team-high four goals, including two in the second half as the Hawks used a 4-0 run to secure the win.

Player of the Week: Connor Ruppert, North Attleboro Lacrosse

Connor Ruppert
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

North Attleboro senior Connor Ruppert has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for April 18 through April 24. Ruppert is the 27th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the third of the spring season.

Ruppert has played a major role in North Attleboro’s strong start to the season, including the winning goal in a double overtime, non-league thriller against Silver Lake. In North’s games last week, he scored 13 goals and added six assists, and now has over 45 points on the year. The Rocketeers are 6-1 on the season, with the only loss coming against Franklin, have the early lead in the Davenport division, and won four games last week. Ruppert, a senior attacker, has been the team’s leading scorer through the opening stretch of the season.

“Connor has really taken on a leadership role for us this year,” said North Attleboro head coach Kevin Young. “Even though we’re playing him at attack this year, he’s probably our best short stick defender too. He’s been great with the younger guys on the roster and it’s been a ball to watch him take charge.”

North bounced back from its first loss of the season by going on the road and winning four straight. It started with an out-of-state trip to Bishop Hendricken and a 14-8 victory followed by a short trip to Attleboro and a 14-11 win on Tuesday. Two days later, North visited Silver Lake and pulled out the 17-16 win in two overtimes. Ruppert had four goals and two assists in the game and had the winner when he took a pass from Clayton Billingkoff, split a double team, and found the back of the net. The next day, North was back in Attleboro to face Bishop Feehan and scored another dramatic OT win. Ruppert led the way for the Rocketeers with five goals on the day.

Player of the Week: Vayshnav Malhotra, Franklin Tennis

Franklin senior Vayshnav Malhotra has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for April 11 through April 17. Malhotra is the 26th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the second of the spring season.

Malhotra has been a big part of Franklin’s perfect start to the season and its quest for a third straight league title. The senior has won all six of his matches this spring, including an impressive, straight sets win on Friday afternoon in a showdown with previously unbeaten Mansfield. His point sealed a 3-2 win over the Hornets and put the Panthers up by a match in the race for the Kelley-Rex crown.

“After breezing by Taunton and North Attleboro, losing only a total of two games in his wins, Vayshnav met his match in Friday’s home match against Neema Khosrovani of Mansfield,” said Franklin head coach Paul Parnell. “This was an important early season match up as both teams (at 5-0 in the Kelley Rex) were vying for sole possession of first place. Vayshnav jumped out to a 5-2 lead, only to hold on to win the first set 6-4. The second set was a back and forth battle with Vayshnav up 3-2, down 3-4, up 5-4. It took five match points to close out the tenth game seal the match (6-4, 6-4) and the third point to ensure the team’s win and sole possession of first place.”

It was a busy week for the Panthers, who won three times. On Monday, Franklin swept Taunton with Malhotra dropping only one game (6-0, 6-1) in his match at first singles. The Panthers dropped only three games total in the singles matches. Two days later, Franklin swept North Attleboro and again Malhotra was dominant, picking up his second 6-0, 6-1 win of the week. Things were tougher on Friday against Mansfield. Malhotra battled with Mansfield freshman Neema Khosravani, who also came into the match unbeaten, and pulled out a 6-4, 6-4 victory to put the Panthers on top in the division. A rematch with Mansfield is scheduled in May at Memorial Park.

Player of the Week: Meg Sherwood, King Philip Softball

King Philip senior Meg Sherwood has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for April 4 through April 10. Sherwood is the 25th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2021-22 school year and the first of the spring season.

Sherwood kicked off the season with a big opening week, helping the Warriors get off to a perfect 3-0 start and take the lead in the Kelley-Rex title race. Sherwood had five hits in the first week, including four for extra bases, and scored the winning run in a dramatic win over rival Taunton that snapped a 21-game win streak for the Tigers and gives KP the early advantage in the division.

“Meg really stepped up for us last week in a big way,” said King Philip head coach Kate Fallon-Comeau. “Blasting a three-run home run in the bottom of the first against Taunton, then threw her team on her back with the lead off triple in the bottom of the seventh, scoring the walk off winner for us! Against Stoughton, she almost hit for the cycle with a single, double and a triple! Meg is off to a great senior campaign and we’re looking forward to her leadership on the diamond!”

KP opened the season by pulling out a win against Foxboro. Next up was Taunton’s visit to the PAL fields and, although it was only the second game, it as a matchup with big title implications. Sherwood smashed a three-run homer to left in the bottom of the first that answered Taunton’s three-run top half of the inning and tied the game. After KP came back again to tie it 4-4, Sherwood led off the seventh by lining a triple down the right field line. She would come across with the winning run on Ava Kelley’s single to center. KP finished up the week with a big win over Stoughton and Sherwood was again in the middle of KP’s offensive outburst, going 3-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored, two RBI, a double, and a triple.
