"Please come out and support the Wildcats on their senior night as they take on the Cougars of Bishop Connolly. Kickoff is at 6:30 and be sure to wear ur white to support the team. Be loud and get crazy!"

The JV Boys Soccer Team tied Blue Hills 9-9 in an all out goal fest. Derek Thorburn scored a whopping 5 goals, Thomas Sheedy scored 2 goals, while Colin Shamey and Ben Fuller added to the scoring as well.

JV girls beat Holbrook 3-2 yesterday. Nora Brodil started off the scoring early but Holbrook answered. Maddie Morash then scored the go-ahead goal to put the Wildcats up again.  Later in the second half after Holbrooks second goal, Morash once again gave the wildcats the lead at 3-2. Emma Lavoie played well and had an assist. Ellie Smith controlled the ball well from the midfield and Halle Hackenson was solid on defense.

The boys varsity soccer team beat Blue Hills Regional High School yesterday 11 to 4. Kevin Lawler and Shawn Thorburn both had hat tricks for the Wildcats, whose record improves to 5-1-1.

Assorted breakfast sandwiches and warm soft pretzels will be offered at break.

GOOD MORNING WEST BRIDGEWATER. My name is Gus, and I’ve got some scrumptious weather, ready to serve on a hot sauce pan!

Let’s get right into it. Today we’ll be experiencing temperate 68 degree weather with relatively low humidity. BUT WAIT.

There’s more! Tonight we’re going to experience a 50 percent chance of light rains with high humidity and low winds.

SATURDAY. The humidity will rise from 78 percent to a massive 91 percent from the morning to the night. On top of that, a 60 percent chance of rain will blast by at a supersonic speed of 3 miles an hour like a peppery garnish on some tasty Spaghettios, so watch out!

Finally, Sunday will be pretty neat. Clear skies and no rain. I personally can’t wait for this weekend. We’ll be going back to the anchors right about now.
