Along with the beautiful weather we had this past weekend we also had some great soccer games that were played during homecoming weekend. Homecoming included games from grades 5/6 up to varsity high school and even an alumni game. The Proctor Rutland Rec teams also played this weekend making it soccer all day and night for some families.

The Phantoms can hold their heads high this week after winning all their games during Saturday's homecoming against local rivals West Rutland.

The 5/6 grade girls shut-out Westside 4-0. Isabelle Valerio, Emerson Pomeroy, Meredeth Parker and Hannah Anderson all scored. The team played very well together against an aggressive opponent. Proctor's defense was solid with Erica May, Carly Flanders and Leah Moody protecting the goal. The day wasn't done as the girls headed to their Rutland Rec league game later that afternoon. With tired legs the Proctor girls came up short against Rutland Rec. Although they were beaten up a bit and suffered a few injuries to some key players, the girls played hard. Meredith Parker scored both goals for Proctor. Earlier in the week the girls beat Barstow. Amanda Gates made her debut in the goal, making some impressive saves. Lizzie Baccei played the second half as keeper. Once again the girls demonstrated great offensive teamwork allowing Emerson Pomeroy to score twice. Regan Doperak was a key player in the midfield keeping Barstow's offense at bay. The girls showed great ball movement and energy on the field.

The Proctor 3/4 grade girls white team was victorious over a tough Mill River United team during Rutland Rec league play on Saturday. Proctor's offense scoring was led by Madelynn Flanders, Allie Almond and Molly Sanderson. However, Emelia Tooley, Charlotte Pomeroy and Riley McKeighan had key plays on defense as well as some offensive assists. The entire team showed lots of hustle and almost every white player took a turn in the goal, it was a great team effort! The 3/4 grade girls maroon team played against a very good Rutland Town Terriers team just coming up short. It was a well fought competitive game with Amanda Gates and Victoria George playing solid defense. Sydney Wood, Liana Hall and Hannah Anderson score for Proctor. The 3/4 grade boys team was also on the field that afternoon against West Rutland. Caleb Stuhlmuller made his first appearance as goal keep this season and did a great job. Isaac Owen played some keep as well helping his team to victory. Conner McKearin scored a couple of goals and Matt Anderson, who is a second grader playing up, scored for the first time this season. Joe Valerio was a wall on defense keeping West Rutland from getting into good scoring position.

For those of you who have not heard, the Proctor General Store closed its doors recently. According to a post on their website, it was due to a lack of interest in the community and some new aspirations of its general manager and primary storekeeper. Items that were left in stock were donated to local charities or returned to their makers.
