Athletics Update: Boys’ Soccer Topples Carroll 3-1
The boys’ soccer team traveled to Carroll this week and returned with their first win of the season. After opening their campaign with a close loss to DCD, the team was on the wrong end of some lopsided scores to Park and Pike before turning things around this week. Team captain Alex Foley credited the win to a more aggressive approach on the offensive side of the field. “We just put more shots on net,” Foley said. “We weren’t waiting for the perfect chance, we were just firing whenever we could and we have some strong legs on this team.” One of those strong legs is Foley himself who blasted a goal from just outside the box. Joining Foley in the scoring were seventh grade classmates Marco Frazzoli-Cassi and Caleb Frehywot. With a win under their belts, the boys’ soccer team will now set their sights on a showdown with Shady Hill.
