Boys Varsity Soccer Secure Victory Over Wheeler

The Beaver boys traveled south to Seekonk on Monday to take on a talented Wheeler team. Both teams seemed nervous in the opening minutes as neither team was able to maintain quality possession or create chances. Halfway through the first half, Beaver Freshman Zac Herivaux (2015) moved from his forward position back into the midfield. Herivaux immediately began controlling the midfield and settling things down for the boys in blue. In the 32nd minute, Alex Schechter (2014), coming off of a long term injury,won a ball in the midfield and poked the ball through the Wheeler back four to Herivaux. Zac unleashed a laser beam from the top of the box leaving the Wheeler keeper frozen. Beaver nearly went up by two when Zack LaCava appeared to be hauled down after slicing his way through the Wheeler defense. The officials swallowed their whistles, and the score sat at 1-0 going into the break. Wheeler equalized in the 50th minute as they began carrying play early in the second half. Beaver regained control as Eric Reed (2014) won countless challenges in the middle of the park. LaCava was rewarded for his hard work on the day as he slotted home in the 57th minute on a nifty feed from Herivaux.  Beaver’s back four, anchored by senior captains Charlie Segar (2012) and Zeke Satloff (2012) shut the door on the home side. In goal, Danny Getz (2013) earned his second win in as many games. Beaver closed out the scoring on a late long range finish from Herivaux to wrap up the 3-1 victory. With the win, Beaver stands at 4-1-1 in the EIL and 6-1-2 overall, while Wheeler now stands at 8-2 overall.
