Heartbreak for Boys’ Soccer
Boys soccer rallies back following season ending injury to captain, Tom Schnoor
In their Wednesday game versus St. Paul’s, boys soccer rallied back to win 3-2 after team captain and star center-back, Tom Schnoor (I) suffered a season ending injury to his arm. Schnoor was taken off in an ambulance after jumping over a St. Paul’s midfielder and landing awkwardly on his left arm.Schnoor broke his humerus bone but will not need surgery. He is at home recovering.
After Schnoor left the game, Milton had a momentary breakdown and gave up a poorly defended goal. However, the boys rallied back in the second half with some inspiring words from Schnoor as he left the field. Michael Cooke (II) and Eric Nesto (I) both scored long goals from over 30 yards out. St. Paul’s answered to tie it up with less than six minutes left, but Michael Sheehan (II) finished out the game with a volley off a free kick from Cooke. Schnoor, the team’s captain and last year’s leading goal scorer, will be missed as a part of the strong defense that has come to define this year’s team.
