Boys' Thirds Soccer
vs Westminster School
Score/Result: 1-0 W
Wednesday, October 03, 2012
There is absolutely nothing better than traveling to Westie on a Wednesday afternoon and earning an excellent one-nil win.. Although our squad didn't have a whole lot of time to warm-up before match-time, our lads came out clicking and moving the ball around nicely. We were playing on the varsity field so there was plenty of room for everyone out there. However no goals are earned due to consecutive passes connected. Late in the first half, Taft earned a corner that was cleared but then sent back in by Josh Molder to the head of Manni Capece who snapped a smart goal over the Westie keeper. The first half ended at one-nil.
Westie came out fired up in the second half but our boys responded by again playing hard and earning a few good chances that we could not put past the Westie keeper. Westie had a free kick from just beyond the Taft 18-yard box in the last minute that fortunately went over the crossbar. Our keepers Christian Paton and Brian Tomasco earned their first clean sheet of the year and the backline of Carlson, Johnston, Cooper and Goldstone again played very well. Our next match is this Saturday afternoon up at Salisbury. We hope to see you there!
