The Fall sports season is winding down, with the regular season coming to a close and playoffs for some teams on the horizon.

First up for the off-season is the golf team, which heads to Dennis Highland on Monday, Oct. 21 to play in the Cape and Islands League playoffs. The Vineyarders face fierce competition against undefeated Nantucket and regular-season leader Mashpee in their quest to repeat as division three Cape Cod Sectional champions.

In their final home match of the season, the Vineyard golfers downed Cape Tech Wednesday afternoon at Farm Neck. Andrew Marchand and Pete Gillis paved the path to the Vineyard’s 11th victory of the season with solid rounds as the bomb cyclone brewed offshore.

The cross-country teams head to Dennis Yarmouth on Saturday, Oct. 26 for the Cape and Islands League Championships.

The boys cross-country team captured the Cape and Islands League Atlantic Division regular-season title with a win last Tuesday afternoon against Barnstable to finish the season at 5-0. Peter Burke led the charge, finishing the 2.6-mile course in 13:24, besting the next two fastest runners, both from Barnstable, by at least 15 seconds. Following the second and third place Red Raiders was Isaac Richards, who finished in 13:40.72, and Borja Tolay, who crossed the finish line at 13:43 to round out the top five and earn a victory for the Vineyard.

The Vineyard girls team fell just short of victory. Adrienne Christy finished three seconds behind Lilly DeDecko of Barnstable for the top spot. DeDecko set Barnstable’s course record, finishing in 15:54. Eloise Christy rounded out the top three behind her sister, finishing in 16:22, and Yayla DeChiara came in fourth, posting a finishing time of 16:44. However, four of the final five runners to cross the finish line donned Barnstable red and earned the home team a win.

On Oct. 13 the boys and girls soccer and field hockey teams hosted Nantucket and all three matches ended up in ties. On Saturday, Oct. 19, the same three teams headed to Nantucket looking to earn more satisfying results. Field hockey won 3-0 and boys soccer won 2-1, but girls soccer fell 1-0.

Boys soccer now has a busy week to keep the momentum going with games against Nauset on Tuesday, Barnstable on Saturday and a final home game against Sandwich on Oct. 28. They currently stand in second place in the league, behind undefeated Nauset.

Girls soccer finishes out their season with home games on Tuesday against Nauset and Saturday against Barnstable.

Field hockey has already finished its regular season, notching a win against Boylston last Monday and a tough loss to Monomoy on Wednesday.

Friday night the football team headed to Harwich to play divisional foe Monomoy. The Vineyarders bounced back from their tough loss against Sandwich last week and dominated the Sharks by a 36-8 margin.

Jayden Coyle led the way on the ground for the Vineyard with 84 yards on nine carries. Antone Moreis added 76 yards on 13 carries and scored a touchdown. Ty Mathew and Hunter Meader also notched two rushing touchdowns apiece.
