Fall MIAA Tournament Information
Joe Taft, Veritas Sports Editor & Web Editor
The time to play for your life is now for three of Rockland’s fall teams. Boys’ and girls’ soccer, as well as volleyball, were deemed good enough to begin the quest for a state championship in their respective sports.
The volleyball team goes up against Old Colony(9) at home Thursday night at 6:00. The girls ended the season with a record of 13-6, took home the 8th seed, and are looking to make a deep playoff push. If they win, they will face either Case(1) or St. John Paul II(16). The seniors on the team call for a black-out in the student section.
The boys’ soccer team plays at home on Friday against Fairhaven(11) at 2:30. Rich MacAllister’s group went 12-6 this season and are looking at the number 6 seed. With a win, they will move on to face either Foxborough(3), Blue Hills(14), or Dedham(19).
Girls’ soccer looks to take on Norfolk County Aggie(5) in an away game this Friday at 2:30. The girls find themselves with the number 12 seed after going 10-7-2 this season. The Veritas asked Greg Rowe, the head coach of the team, how deep of a playoff push he is looking to make. He responded with “We’re focused on the next game.” Well said, Mr. Rowe. With a win, the girls will move on and face either Nantucket(4) or Falmouth Academy(13).
Don’t forget to go out and support Rockland Bulldog football, as they face Fairhaven on Friday night at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium. The game is at 7:00, and they are looking to end their season on a high note in the coming weeks. Even though they are not playing for a state title, they are a great group to watch with their tenacity and grit.
Come out and support all of your fellow Bulldogs. All the teams are looking to make a deep run this postseason. When the RHS student-sections are loud, the teams have a much better chance of squeaking out wins. Every player looks to leave all they have on the playing field for themselves and our school, do the same for them. Bulldog Nation, they need our help!
