One year ago Gilford Field Hockey traveled to Winnisquam to play a game under cloudy conditions and the teams played to a 0 - 0 tie. Fast forward to Tuesday September 10, 2013. Under similar weather conditions Winnisquam and Gilford faced off and at the end the teams played to another 0 - 0 tie. Both years the goalies stepped up big and received very good support from their halfbacks.
Both offenses had their opportunities and the defenses again and again rose to the occasion. The game was highlighted by the passing of Winnisquam's Erin McNamara and Rachel Willcutt while Kayla Orton led Gilford's defense.

Laconia and Gilford boys' soccer teams grappled in a hard fought match on September 10, with both sides providing a good display of skill and athleticism. Gilford jumped out to an early lead on a Dan Dormody goal and had another first half scoring opportunity called back to hold the score at 1-0 to end the first half. Laconia spent a good part of the first half in their defensive half but were able to keep the Gilford attack at bay. Laconia came out stronger in the second half and the match was truly a back and forth battle for the next 30 minutes with each side having multiple scoring chances. Gilford kept pushing and Dormody was able to net a second goal in the 70th minute and again, again off of Dormody's boot, in the 79th. Laconia kept their heads in the match and were rewarded when Sachem Aidan Dean able to put one in the back of the net seconds before the final whistle. Goalkeeper Panthavy Pradacith recorded 12 saves for Laconia.
