Soccer Team Has Strong Showing at Home Showcase

Northwood soccer opened competition on its new field with the first Northwood Boys soccer showcase. The showcase started November 11th with the boys U19 team defeating Immaculate Heart 1-0 in the 50 minute match. This was the first clean sheet of many for the older Husky boys who wouldn’t concede a single goal the whole showcase. 

The following morning the U19 boys kept their momentum against St. Andrews College, a prep school from Toronto, securing a impressive 6-0 win. The younger Huskies joined the action first playing Burlington FC to a 1-1 draw with the lone goal from Sachiel Ming ’24.  

Saturday concluded with a rival matchup between the U19s and High Mowing School, another Black Rock FC Academy.  The match was decided when senior Berhanu Stevens headed in the winning  goal that came from a sequence of quick passing. The Huskies kept their composure for the rest of the game, possessing the ball and not giving High Mowing many chances to tie the match. 

The last day of competitions started with a quick turnaround for the U19s as they played NY Elite at 9:00 am and managed a 2-0 win.  Northwoods U18 team continued their weekend coming against Burlington FC that morning. The score ended 1-1 with the singular goal coming from sophomore Ming.  The older Huskies finished out their weekend playing RMPUS from near Montreal. The final match was scrappy and ended with the U19s winning 2-0. This ended a very solid weekend for the U19s as they kept 5 clean sheets and tallied a total of 12 goals against their opponents.
