Boys Varsity Soccer Excels on Field
by Michael Davis on Friday, October 25th, 2013
The Boys’ Varsity Soccer team has been quite successful as of late, much to the delight of the hardcore MA soccer faithful. The team hasn’t lost a league game since September 25th, when they lost to Thayer. This winning sreak is likely the longest in recent memory, judging by the fact that former students and members of the team remember only the tougher seasons. As former student and member of the soccer team, Jono Karlson (almost Class of ’11) informed me, “We were always horrible. It’s nothing short of a miracle that they have won any games at all.”
In the true spirit of investigatory journalism, I delved deep into the issue at hand: how could this transformation occur in just a few short years? I identified the key differences between this year’s winning habit and the struggles of teams of previous years: a change at the helm of the program in the managerial position and the flood of new talent.
Head Coach Chris Kane took control of the team three years ago, implementing a more demanding schedule that required the boys to have commitment to the team. Pat Sheehan (I) described Coach Kane’s style as “involved, demanding, and ruthless.” With Coach Kane’s new leadership of the MA Boys Soccer program, the team headed into a successful season. This past Saturday, Milton Soccer achieved a record high, beating Rivers, one of the best teams in New England, after a nail biting game. In the game, avid sports fan Peter Ambrus (II) said, “Jack O’Brien (IV) scored two goals at Rivers. Pat Sheehan and Chris Lewis (II) also [held] down the defensive front.” The Boys’ Soccer team looks forward to continuing their successful streak in the final games of the season and demonstrating the team’s commitment to improving the Milton Soccer Program.
