Soccer Team Easily Defeats VT State Champ

The inaugural year of Black Rock Residential Academy at Northwood soccer is coming to an end, and it’s been a successful season. Recently, a mixture of U17 and U19 players traveled to Vermont to face Black Watch Premier, the current champion of their section in Vermont.

Home field advantage wasn’t enough to stop the Black Rock team. Black Rock had a good start in the game where they scored 3 goals in the first 20 minutes and then the goal differential kept getting bigger. The score at the end of the first half was 6-0. Then in the second half, the Black Rock team changed its strategy and the final result of the game was 7-2.

Goal scorers included:

Alvaro Garcia ’21 with two

Luke “Smudge” Smith ’21 with two

Cory Booth ’19 with two

Matias Valenzuela ’19 with one
