Postseason Wrap-up, Nipmuc & Valley Tech

It was a productive fall season for both Nipmuc and Blackstone Valley Tech, with multiple championship runs and postseason appearances.
Nipmuc took home a pair of Central Sectional championships, with boys' soccer and golf both winning team titles. Valley Tech's girls' volleyball team advanced all the way to the sectional final before falling to Sutton, and the Beavers' football team will play for a district title on Friday.
In addition to those squads, Nipmuc earned postseason appearances in football and girls' soccer and BVT sent both its boys and girls soccer teams into the tournament.
The Nipmuc football team won two of its final three games to secure the final spot in the eight-team playoff in Central Mass division four. The Warriors faced off against top-seeded Shepard Hill, losing 32-12. Nipmuc running back Kyle Braile scored a first-quarter touchdown and the Warriors trailed 8-6 at the start of the second quarter. The Rams added a touchdown in the second quarter and another in the third. Nipmuc put more points on the board when senior Nick DeMarzo scooped up a fumble and returned it 96 yards for a touchdown.
Following the quarterfinal loss, the football season continued in the consolation bracket. Nipmuc dropped a 33-0 decision to Tantasqua last week, and will take on Groton-Dunstable Friday before finishing off the season on Thanksgiving Day against Valley Tech.
The Nipmuc girls soccer team earned the fifth seed in the Central Mass division three tournament. The Warriors won their first round game, blanking 12th seeded Auburn 2-0. Gabby Diodadi and Samantha Maneri provided the goals while Amanda St. Germaine made four saves to preserve the shutout. Nipmuc's run came to an end in the quarterfinals against Littleton. Kiley Laroque scored for the Warriors as the two teams played through regulation and a pair of overtimes before Littleton picked up the win by edging Nipmuc 3-1 on penalty kicks.
The Valley Tech boys' soccer team finished the season 11-5-3 and entered the districts as the 5th seed. The Beavers were upset by 12th seeded Auburn in the opening round by a 1-0 game. Riding a six-game midseason winning streak, which qualified it for tournament play, Valley Tech was led offensively by Charles Brodeur and Ted Floyd.
A 10-4-4 regular season record earned the BVT girls' soccer team the 9th seed in a very deep Central Mass Division 3. Tyngsboro edged Valley Tech 2-1 in the opening round of the playoffs, despite a goal from Madyson Christian. Brooke Linnehan was the leading scorer for the Beavers this season, followed by Christian, Shannon Kelly, and Brianna McMullen. Noelle Trail stepped into goal for the injured Ashley Thompson and allowed fewer than 1.4 goals per game for the Beavers.
