Choate 2-0, Westy 2-1, Loomis 1-1
We played three 40 minute matches on this first head to head play day. In our first match, we moved the ball well, played within our shape, and commincated positively. With goals from Evan Xie and MacGregor Hynds, we held on for a 2-0 win. Westminster was a little tougher and stronger and scored first. We answered right away with good pressure and a score by Walker Naughton on a Westy miscue, followed soon after by a nice turn-and-shoot from Matteo Stewart. The third match with Loomis was even tighter with lots of pressure at both ends. Our guys were getting tired and Loomis had a much deeper bench. They scored first and then late in the game, we settled a goal kick and Luca Lyons hit a one-timer from outside the box to tie things up. The team played impressively, with creative passing combinations, soild defense, and strong goalkeeping from senior Bob Zhang and sophomore Joe Berman. We’re excited for our regular season to begin next Saturday!
