This past weekend the Northwood boys’ soccer program traveled to New York City to attend a college showcase. The tournament was put on by Manhattan Soccer Club and each game was played in Manhattan against solid opponents. The teams left on Thursday February 4th and traveled to Yonkers where they would stay the whole weekend. That Friday the team enjoyed a rest day full of healthy food and planning for the matches ahead.  

The U17s started the weekend positively with a 2-1 win against Amityville SC Cosmos. The U19s faced their first challenge, winning 3-0 over East Meadow U19s. Goals came from Kyumin Shin ‘22 and Liam Doyle ‘22. The younger Huskies were soon called back into action playing East Meadow U17s and coming out of the game with a tie at zero. The final match on Saturday was between Northwood’s U19s and Beachside FC. The Huskies finished the day with a decisive 3-0 keeping another clean sheet for the weekend. 

Sunday marked only one game for each of the Husky squads, but they were the marquee matches for both sides. The U17s would play Manhattan Soccer Clubs younger group who were highly ranked nationally. This matchup did not disappoint, as each team battled to create scoring opportunities. The match ended 2-1 in Northwood’s favor with goals from Jace Donowa ‘25 and Lakoah Paye ‘24. The U19s took on Manhattan SC’s older team, which was also unbeaten in the tournament. The first half was a deadlock with multiple chances from each team just missing their mark. It was not until Pablo Obrador ‘22 slotted the only goal in the game.  

This marked a great weekend for both teams that was celebrated with burgers and milkshakes on the way home.
