Boys Varsity Soccer –

The Boys Varsity Soccer team had a disappointing week, as they drew with Bancroft 2-2 on Wednesday, and lost to Wheeler 2-0 on Saturday. The Bancroft game saw Beaver hit the post or crossbar four times, as the team carried play throughout. A mental lapse in the waning seconds resulted in a Bancroft free kick which tied the game. On Saturday, the boys travelled to Wheeler to take on a highly organized and efficient team. Beaver lacked scoring punch without leading goal scorer, Alex Zecca ’15 and the ever dangerous Adam Kulick ’17. Despite a solid effort, Wheeler’s solid defense earned the result in front of their homecoming crowd. The Beaver Boys will look to rebound this week, as they return to league play against Portsmouth Abbey on Wednesday and Concord Academy on Friday. The Beaver team currently sits atop the league table at 7-0-2.
