Boys’ soccer, 6-6-6, achieved its goal of making the postseason, but lost to Brookline in the first round of the Sectional Tournament Saturday, Nov. 25.
According to senior Tim Stanton, a captain with senior Luke Westman, one of the highlights of the season was the Kicks for Cancer game Saturday, Oct. 1, in which the team beat Brookline 2-0.
Coach Roy Dow said, “From day one, the first day of preseason, to losing to Brookline as a team, we gained a lot of maturity and learned many lessons.”
Stanton received First Team All-League, Eastern Massachusetts all-star recognition and co-team MVP. Westman was also named First Team All-League.
Senior Matt Moss-Hawkings took home co-team MVP and the Ucal Award. Junior Matt Callahan received Second Team All-League recognition and senior Carter Tiernan was named the most improved player.
Stanton and Westman were named Bay State Conference all-stars.
“Things don’t always bounce our way, but at the end of the day, we put our best foot forward and really tried to improve as individuals and as a group,” Dow said.
Next year’s captains will be juniors Mike Kaye and Rob Morgan.
