Despite playing a much bigger and more experienced team, our boys fought hard and played a well-executed game plan, pressing aggressively the opponent’s defense. On one of those plays, Leo Sussman forced a turnover and passed the ball to Jack Neikry who was tripped in the box. On an awarded penalty, senior Charlie Liu calmly put KO ahead 1:0. After the visiting team tied a game on a rebound, Alex Levin put KO ahead again after being fouled in the penalty area and converting on another penalty kick. In the second half, Williston Northampton started to dictate the game and threatened numerous times to tie the game, only to be denied by our goalie’s Mac Louis acrobatic saves. Unfortunately, he could not stop two shots caused by our defensive lapses. Despite the loss, the team should be proud of such a valiant effort against a formidable opponent! The team’s overall record for the season was 5 (W) - 4 (L) - 1 (T). Congratulations, boys on a great season!
