With a three-nil victory against Governor’s, the varsity soccer team finished up one of their most impressive seasons in recent years. Standing second in the ISL only to an undefeated Milton squad, the boys fought their way to an overall record of 14 wins, 2 losses, and 2 ties (12-2-1 in ISL). A stingy back line led by senior captain Chip Daley and junior goalkeeper Chris Kingston held opponents at bay while the midfield and striker corps led by senior Alessandro Zenati (8 assists) and juniors Robbie Cronin (7 goals) and Evan Ricci (10 goals) conducted the offensive assaults. The team was undefeated through their first 13 games, recording only one ISL tie to a formidable Nobles team. After going down a goal midway through the first half, the boys found new life in the second half, largely due to the football team’s rowdy support, and were able to net the tying goal off the foot of sophomore Brian Antonelli in the closing minutes of the game. Continuing on to lose only two games and win the rest for the remainder of the regular season, the soccer team was able to secure a spot in the NEPSAC Class A New England Tournament, with a rematch against the number one seeded Milton Academy on the Mustangs’ home pitch. Retaining 15 members of this year’s accomplished group and looking to gain talent from the undefeated JV soccer team, next year’s squad should show similar promise, and will surely be the team to beat in 2016.
