The Northwood Soccer team recently competed in the Far Post Winter Tournament in Vermont. It was a fantastic tournament which allowed the new players to familiarize themselves with their teammates playing styles.  

The U17 team’s first game was challenging. They played Far Post 2 who were a much bigger side. The Huskies started slow but picked up the pace towards the end of the game and played some excellent soccer. Jeremy Tsang ‘23 scored a beautiful free kick. The final score was 5-1 for Far Post 2.  

The second game for the U17 was much better. They played a side who beat the previous team they lost to. Coach Martinez made some fantastic tactical changes which helped the team start and finish strong. The team won 5-1 with Gonzalo Munoz ’24, Mitchell Baker’25, Lohkoah Paye’24, Sachiel Ming ‘24, and Tsang each netting goals for the Huskies.  

The overall morale of the team was high as they came into a huge game the following day. The U17 Huskies started the game strong against Burlington Futbol Club with Baker scoring a goal to put the team in the lead. The team fought hard for the whole game; however, Burlington Futbol Club scored with just a minute left. A minor tussle broke out, which led to a controversial decision from the referee to end the game early. It was a disappointing draw which put the squad in second place in their group.  

Just minutes after the controversial draw, the team was told they had 10 minutes to rest before playing another game. The team was exhausted but they pushed hard. Far Post 1 opened the scoring, but the team replied with Tsang putting them back in the game. Later in the game Baker scored a goal to put the team in the lead. Far post 1 quickly replied with two quick goals. The Huskies didn’t lie down. Jace Donowa’25 scored a full pitch goal which had the bench and team going crazy. Far post responded with another goal which ended the game 4-3 for Far Post 1.  

Northwood’s U19 team played a fantastic tournament, going undefeated in all games. They won their first game 3-0 against Far Post 1. Their second game of the day against Seacoast 1 was a very entertaining game with Northwood coming out on top 5-2. They finished the group in first place with 9 points after beating Bridgeton Academy 5-2. They advanced to the final against Seacoast 2, a team the U17 Huskies soundly beat 5-1. The U19 Huskies were clearly the dominant side. The final score was 2-0 to Northwood. The goal scorers for the U19 team for the tournament were Calem Luke’22, Thebe Mosehathebe ’22, Junior Happi’23, Liam Doyle’22 and Connor DeAngelis ’22.  

Coach Jon Moodey was very pleased with both teams. “The Far Post winter invitational tournament was a remarkable success for the Black Rock team here at Northwood,” Moodey said. Moodey noted that the U19s went on to win the championship and the U17s were just one goal away from playing against the U19s in the final. “The U17 team played a fantastic tournament battling hard until the end,” Moodey added. The coach as particularly proud of the older squad. “The U19 team was classy and won in great style. Overall, it was a fantastic weekend for both teams and for Northwood School,” boated Moodey.
