Soccer Team Splits in Boston

Two weekends ago, Boy’s Soccer traveled to Boston, Massachusetts to play against two of their strong opponents: Milton Academy and High Mowing. Unfortunately, many Northwood players were not available for Saturday’s match, as they had to take the SAT. but they flew to Boston on early Sunday morning to join their team for a re-match against Black Rock’s High Mowing School.

On Saturday, in the first match against Milton Academy, the boys knew they were facing a tough opponent. Milton was undefeated in their prep school league and had shown a lot of talent throughout the season. In the early minutes, Northwood did well keeping the ball but allowed a goal. They continued to push and got themselves a goal back through John Sinclair ‘20, tying the game at 1-1. With a goal off a penalty and another counter-attack, the game went into halftime 3-1 in favor of Milton. The game ended at 5-1.

On Sunday, Northwood played against High Mowing, to whom they had lost 2-0 at home just weeks before. Both teams came out fast and aggressive. Many fouls were called in the early minutes. As the game went back and forth, the Huskies found themselves going into halftime trailing 1-0. Going into the second half, Northwood began to throw more numbers forward and tied the game with a tally by Tomas Restrepo ‘20. With fifteen minutes left in the game, Lucas Rodriguez ‘20 found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper and slid the ball past him. The game finished at 2-1 in favor of Northwood. The boys ended the weekend 1-1.
