The Northwood soccer team traveled to Connecticut recently to play three games against other prep schools. After going undefeated against prep opponents last year, the Huskies suffered their second loss against prep schools this season.

On Saturday, half the Northwood squad first faced Westminster School and won 6-0 with a hat trick by Ryan Combe ́20, and other three goals by Tonio Chan ́20, Marcelo Suarez ́20 and Alvaro Galan ́20. Following this game, the other half of the Northwood soccer team played Kingswood-Oxford and lost 2-1 in a tight game. Kingswood-Oxford got the advantage early in the first half, and our soccer team wasn’t able to tie the game until ten minutes from the end, with an own goal scored by the Kingswood ́s player. However, a game that was expected to finish tied, ended up with a defeat for the Huskies, who got scored on with three minutes left to play, due to a beautiful set play off a throw-in across the box.

On Sunday, the soccer team played a tough game against Williston-Northampton at Loomis Chaffee School, and they won 3-1 with a brace by Alvaro Pascual ́21 and other goal by Kenji Mboma ́20.
