Varsity Boys Soccer zeroed Fox Lane at Nugent Stadium Friday 3-0 moving its season to 6-0-2. In celebration of senior night, the starting lineup featured seven seniors and they brought a great amount of energy and commitment to the match.
“After a classy pre-match ceremony emceed by Mr. Marc McWilliams, the Garnets came ready to play,” said Boys Varsity Soccer Coach Jarred Small. “Jack O’Connor put in 63 minutes as the goalkeeper to help the team earn its 6th shutout of the season. Luke Burnham played a fantastic left back, shutting down the Fox Lane attack and probing into the attacking third with regularity. Nate Collins made the start at center midfield and also put his mark on the game from the right wing.”
“Matt Capaldi had a huge assist midway through the second half when he got his head on a Collins corner kick and set up Ian Koford for the third goal,” continued Small. “Sam Beazely showed moments of electricity at the wing and forward positions. Keir Sadler put in one of his finest performances of the season as the attacking center midfielder. And Alex Vollbrecht was dynamic this evening, generating the second goal with a remarkably impressive re-press deep in the final third.”
Zach Levitt opened the scoring midway through the first half with an opportunistic finish off a feed from Jack Childs. He then scored the second goal on Vollbrecht’s hustle play. Ian Koford scored his first goal of the season to ice the game in the 68th minute. The starting center back duo of Sam Johnson and Jack Formon were fantastic Friday and deserve praise for their decision making, tenacity, and passing.
