Soccer Team Fares Well in Ohio

Boys soccer teams traveled to Ohio in October (October 22-24) to compete against other top prep schools in the Northeast. 

On Thursday, October 21st both the U18 and U19 teams loaded onto a charter bus and set out for Ohio. The team made one stop on the way to their games taking a scenic route to Niagra Falls.  For many of the players, this was a first visit to the falls, and were astonished to hear stories of daredevils who went off the falls.

Upon arrival in Ohio on Friday, the Huskies watched an exciting matchup between two D1 programs Akron and Bowling Green. The match ended in a 5-1 win for Akron and gave many of the players a better understanding of soccer at the next level. Calem Tommy ’22 saw this as a great opportunity saying, “It’s important to see the next level in our football careers. It gave us motivation to make that next step.” 

The prep showcase was hosted by Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio. Games started with the U19 boys playing Kiski School on Saturday morning and winning 3-1. Goals came from Kyumin Shin ’22, Junior Happi ’23 and Liam Doyle ’22. Sebastian Green’22 said the match was “a great response from the team after a prior winless weekend.”  The younger U18 team faced Lake Forest Academy Saturday evening, and that game ended in hard fought 2-4 defeat with goals from Saquiel Ming ’24 and Gonzales Munoz ’25. 

The weekend continued with the U19s playing Western Reserve Academy on their home turf. The match ended with a 3-1 win for the Huskies. Two vital goals came from Happi and  one from Shin.  This marked a solid weekend for Junior Happi with 3 goals in two games.
