The Eagles kicked off the 2019 season with a hard fought match against Salisbury Central School. With a slow start, the Eagles clawed their way back to bring the game within 6 points. Some strong rebounding from Nick and ferocious defense from TD kept Maplebrook in the match as time was ticking away. Salisbury Central continued to hit difficult shots and key three-pointers, which kept the game out of reach for the Eagles. The game provided a lot of feedback for upcoming practices as we prepared for our next home game vs. Forman at 3:00 pm on January 16th.
The Maplebrook Invitational Tournament (MIT) will be on Friday, January 25th & Saturday, January 26th. Our Cheerleading squad will be performing during the tournament and the MBS Student Government Association will set up a concessions stand in the lobby.
Parents, please email Mrs. Wang (email@example.com) in advance if you plan to take your child off campus after the tournament.
We hope to see you there!

Maplebrook vs. Kildonan
The Eagles started off on a positive note and tried their best to be aggressive. Kildonan’s offense was very strong and unfortunately we conceded a few goals early on in the game. But, I saw a great command given by Zach to keep the defense working, which helped set the foundation for the attackers to score goals. Ben did a great job and hustled up and down the field. Additionally, I have seen great improvements from Tanya and Colin. The second half started off on a better note thanks to goals scored by TD. In conclusion, the team did a great job and gave it their all. The final score was 7 to 3 in Kildonan’s favor.
Maplebrook vs. Glenholme
The Eagles were excited to kick off the Parents’ Weekend Homecoming Game. Our team was trying really hard and you could see that they were trying not to make the same mistakes as last match. Zach made some great saves and the defense stepped up. There was terrific collaboration by Zach and Colin to tighten the game as well. Nick was doing well on offense and put some points on the board. The Eagles also played with a lot of confidence and consistency. I was impressed by our team at that point of time. In conclusion, I would like to say that the team played much better from the last match. The final score was a close margin of 8 to 7 in Glenholme’s favor.
