Keefe named captain of 2020 team

The CHS Boys Soccer program is happy to formally announce that Will Keefe, class of 2021, will serve as one of the CHS Boys Soccer captains for the 2020 campaign.  Keefe, a stalwart of the Bulldog defense during the 2019 season and Hockomock League All-Star, will captain a team with lofty goals in 2020.

Keefe will lead the Bulldogs through their initial off-season work and preparation.  He has all of the tools to be a great motivator to get kids working in the off-season and that is precisely why he is being named captain at this time.

We will be holding an important meeting in March for all student athletes interested in making the varsity team next fall. More information on 2020 captains will be discussed at this important meeting.

Great showing and fun at Alumni Game

As has been the case since the late 1980s, alumni of the Bulldog Boys Soccer program came home to play in our annual Alumni Game the day after Thanksgiving. The tradition, which was started by former Bulldog coach George Giannouloudis, still brings together dozens of alum from over the years to "battle" for the annual alumni cup.

This year- 36 hearty alum braved the 30 degree temps and had a great time doing it.  Members of the team chipped in some donations to support fellow alumnus Michael Dobbyn's family as their son battles Sanfilippo Syndrome.

This year's winning team was made up of players from the highly successful 2010 era.  Special shout out to our 2015 team seniors.  All four of them were there- the only class with 100% attendance! Thanks Joey, Kevin, Brian and Pat!

Thanks to all of the boys for helping to keep the tradition going!

Alumni Game set for Friday

The annual CHS Boys Soccer Alumni game will take place this Friday, November 29th at 4:00pm at CHS Memorial Field. All CHS Boys Soccer Alumni are welcome and encouraged to attend. It is always fun to get players from many different eras together for this annual event. We are hoping for a great turnout so please spread the word.

We are also taking donations for the Sanfillipo Syndrome fight.  Michael Dobbyn's (class of 1995) son Connor is currently battling this fatal disease and I'm hoping that our soccer alumni can come through with some donations.

Two ways to donate- bring cash OR donate by clicking here.

Keefe and Ciffolillo honored by Hockomock League

Will Keefe- '21
The Hockomock League recently announced their Hockomock All-Stars for Boys Soccer- 2019 season.  Two Bulldogs were honored:


Will Keefe was named to the Hockomock League All-Star Team.  Keefe, a junior, emerged this season as a steadfast, hard working and consistent force in the Bulldog back four.  He was a positive, vocal competitor in the back who was often cleaning up dangerous chances from Hockomock League foes.  He was the perfect bridge between a team of upperclassmen and underclassmen. He played virtually every minute of every game.  His ability to relieve pressure with a long clearance, make a hard, last second tackle or provide a goal-scoring chance with a big throw-in all led to his inclusion as a Hockomock League All-Star.  He will return to CHS Soccer next fall as an established leader and role model.

Colby Ciffolillo- '20
Colby Ciffolillo was named an Honorable Mention to the Hockomock League All-Star Team. Ciffolillo, a senior captain, had been a role player for the Bulldogs during his sophomore and junior seasons- stepping into many roles during those years. But this season, he stepped up to take on the role of leading the Bulldog attack.  His big, athletic presence made him a formidable target striker.  He led the team in scoring this year with three goals and two assists. (Click Here for 2019 individual stats.) 

Beyond his major contributions with his head and feet on the field, Ciffolillo was also a great role model for all of his teammates. He will be missed on the pitch next fall. Best of luck to him this winter with the CHS Boys Hockey team.

When you see Will and Colby, be sure to congratulate them on these well-deserved honors!

Seniors Celebrate Victory on Senior Night

2019 Senior Dogs- Jack Stubbs, Johnny Bradley, Colby Ciffolillo
Alejandro Correal, Cooper Ashcraft. 
A huge thank you goes out to the five members of our team who played in their final game as soccer Bulldogs last night. Cooper Ashcraft, Johnny Bradley, Colby Ciffolillo, Alejandro Correal and Jack Stubbs have all dedicated so much of their time, works, sweat, care and heart to this program during their time here. We are all lucky to have had them as members of our team.

Last night saw them lead their team to a big 1-0 win over tourney-bound Braintree High School.  Ciffolillo's blistering free-kick early in the 2nd half rattled off the inside of the nearpost and the rebound was pounced on by Dylan Baird who knocked it into an empty goal.  That would be all the Bulldogs would need as the steadfast work of Correal in goal and Ashcraft, Bradley and Stubbs in the back would keep the visiting Wamps scoreless.

The victory puts a positive finish to what has been a challenging season for the 'dogs, but the foundation for success that has been put in place by this group of seniors will pay off in big ways in the future. Thank you Cooper, Johnny, Colby, Hondo and Jack! Best of luck to you all.

'Dogs drop two to Davenport foes

It was two very different performances by the Bulldogs against Milford and Foxboro but both resulted in frustrating losses for the boys.
The Milford game saw the 'dogs fight first place, unbeaten Milford to a 2-1 loss after jumping out to a 1-0 lead on Dylan Baird's first career goal.  The team played really well in defeat.
The Foxboro game was not as positive as the squad allowed 4 second half goals in a 5-1 loss (Baird with the lone Bulldog goal.)
The team hosts Stoughton on Friday at 6:30pm.
