Soccer - 3rd
|Date:||October 4, 2017|
The T-P Thirds played their best half of the year against the Gunnery JV team. After a back-and-forth opening, midfielder CJ Zezima shot into the upper right corner from a pass from Steven Willey for his first goal of the season. The PRIDE was on the board! Seven minutes later forward Willie Ackerman took a shot that rebounded off the goalie, and he followed-up to put the ball in the net, bringing the score to 2-1. With four minutes to go in the half Gunnery scored when their shot hit the post and they put away the rebound to level the score at two apiece.
The wind seemed to go of the sails of the PRIDE when they let in an "own goal" during a clearing attempt by the defense. The fitter Gunnery squad began to wear down the T-P team and scored 2 more unanswered goals to walk away with a 5-2 win.
Goalie Lucas Hughes played an amazing game in net with close to 30 saves including many point blank shots that he deflected away. Playing well on defense were Declan O'Brien and Hayden Peek as center defensive backs and Henry Bi and Nicholas Phillips on the outside. Midfielders Chris Devanny, Jackson McAvoy, Steven Willey, and Aiden Morgan hustled well moving from offense then back to support the defense.
T-P will face Berkshire on Saturday at home and hope to put together two good halves!
