In a strong start to the season, the boys’ Junior A soccer team achieved a 14-1 victory over Brattleboro High School’s thirds team at home under a warm September sun. Though Brattleboro arrived with less-than-ideal numbers (having only 11 players and no subs), Brattleboro put up an excellent fight, and Deerfield’s Junior A team played with sportsmanship and respect. Contributing to the 14 goals were Winston Cho, Jack Willett, Yurok Song, James Kurto, MacGregor Hynds, Will Yang, Caleb McDaniel, Cairon Harrison, and Alex Rolfe (who shot an impressive 4 goals in 10 minutes). A good clean game from start to finish, the match offered Deerfield a chance to find a team groove; one highlight of that groove was Song’s 6 assists. The team will return to the field in a home game against Taft on Saturday afternoon.
