Steve Keskinidis threw a no-hitter in a 2-0 victory over the Watertown High School Raiders on Tuesday.
Stoneham High School pitcher Steve Keskinidis tossed a no-hitter versus Watertown High School in a 2-0 win on Tuesday. Keskinidis threw seven innings of no-hit baseball, while walking one and punching out six Raiders en route to the victory. Keskinidis was down to his final out and had a 2-2 count when he reached back and threw a straight fastball right on the corner to strikeout a Raiders hitter. “It was the best feeling in the world as I walked off the mound after pumping my fist knowing I threw a no-hitter,” Keskinidis said. Keskinidis said that he had command of all of his pitches throughout the day, but admitted he threw some pitches more than others. “I was frequently throwing my fastball and curveball,” Keskinidis said. “Coach (…

The Stoneham High School field hockey team was shutout 5-0 to Watertown Monday in Watertown.
Erika Kelly's hat trick provided more than enough offense to lift Watertown High School's field hockey team over Stoneham 5-0 on Monday afternoon in Watertown. The senior scored two first half goals, and fellow senior Lauren Giordano scored to give Watertown a three-goal lead over Stoneham going into halftime. Stoneham goalie Denise O'Brien did her best to keep her team in the game, and made 21 saves during the match. Watertown's attack kept coming, however, and the Raiders scored on two long shots from near the edge of the 16-yard circle. Allie Doggett scored the first and Kelly scored the final Watertown goal to earn her hat trick.

After gaining leads on a pair of touchdowns by senior Paul Delorfano, Stoneham High School loses to Watertown 27-14 Friday night in Arlington.
In the face of adverse weather conditions, the Stoneham High School football team held leads of 7-0 and 14-13 in the first half against undefeated Watertown High. But, the Spartans were unable to find an answer for Raider senior Giovanni Ortiz, who scored the final two touchdowns for Watertown in a 27-14 loss on Friday night at Pierce Field in Arlington. “We expect to execute,” said Stoneham coach Dave Pignone. “We have scored on every team we have played. The kids are fighting as much as they can fight. When an athlete like Ortiz takes over a game, though, it’s tough.” Stoneham (2-4) scored first. The Spartans fielded the opening kickoff at the Raider 45, then earned a first down on consecutive carries by their two featured running backs…

The Stoneham High School softball squad lost to Winchester High, 5-3, on Thursday.
STONEHAM — After shortstop Gia Raczkowski smacked a two-run homer over the right-field fence in the first inning, the Stoneham High School softball team looked poised for a win over Middlesex League rival Winchester High on Thursday at Stoneham High. But, the Sachems had other plans in mind, as they rallied to beat the Spartans, 5-3. Up next for the Spartans is a Monday morning game against Watertown at home at 10 a.m.

Stoneham fell to Saugus, 3-1, in the second round of the MIAA Div. 2 North Sectionals Thursday night at Woburn's Ned O'Brien Rink, ending their season.
WOBURN — As the saying goes: all good things must come to an end. The Stoneham High School boys' hockey team, while perhaps not ringing up the wins as frequently as they would have hoped this season, still managed to advance through the preliminary round at the MIAA Division 2 North Sectionals, becoming the team with the lowest win total in its bracket to do so. Twentieth-seeded Stoneham (5-14-1) beat 13th-ranked Watertown, 5-3, in the opening round of the playoff Tuesday night. The Spartans, playing almost exclusively against Div. 1 teams in the high-powered Middlesex League, qualified for the tournament under the MIAA’s “Sullivan Rule,” allowing teams playing more than 70 percent of their games against higher-division opponents to be …
Michael Kelly, assistant captain of the Stoneham High School boys' hockey team, is this week's Whiz Kid of the Week.
Stoneham Patch Whiz Kid of the Week Key to Awesomeness: Kelly, an assistant captain of the Stoneham High School boys' hockey team, is showing his talent in the MIAA state tournament. The Spartans upset Watertown, 6-3, this week to advance to the second round of the tournament against Saugus. “We were pumped," Kelly said. "We beat Watertown twice during the regular season, but we knew this wasn’t going to be easy. Everyone played their game and for the most part stayed out of the penalty box. “My two goals were just the icing on the cake. We played as a team and that is how you win hockey games." Kelly knows his team is the underdog in the tournament, but most people don't know that they play teams out of their division. “People forget …

The 20th seeded Stoneham High School boys' hockey team received a pair of goals off the sticks of Mike Kelly and Scott Shannon as they upset No. 13 ranked Watertown High, 6-3, Tuesday night in a Division 2 North Sectional preliminary round game at Woburn.
WOBURN — Other than the fact the 20th seeded Stoneham High School boys' hockey team beat them twice during the regular season, every other indicator seemed to favor a Watertown High victory. The two teams entered Tuesday night’s MIAA Division 2 North Sectional tournament preliminary round showdown at Ned O’Brien Rink heading on two different paths: the 13th seeded Raiders went 5-1 down the stretch, outscoring their opponents by a 31-9 margin during that span, while the Spartans lost four of their last five and were outscored by a nearly identical margin, 30-9. But as the saying goes: that’s why they play the games. Despite managing only four wins during the 2010-2011 campaign and limping into the postseason, Stoneham (5-13-1) skated past …
