U14 TRAVEL BOYS
Pepperell BU14 4
Pepperell bounced back after a tough loss last week. A last minute scratch left Pepperell without a starting goaltender at game time, and Ryan Trust was called upon to start. Ryan did a great job in keeping all shots from reaching the back of the net.
Pepperell held a slim 1-0 halftime lead, but the team was fairly relaxed. By a team vote, Tyler Tenbrook was called upon to start the second half in goal. Tyler did a great job preserving the shutout, at one point he made a great fake and allowed a corner kick to pass the goal line so that a fullback could clear it to an open midfielder. It was an incredible play because that is something that you usually don’t practice, let alone attempt during a game. Myles Danforth netted two goals, while Eric Faxon and Nick Smith each added one. This week’s game balls go to Liam McCann who played a super game as fullback, Liam made some stellar plays preserving the shutout and distributing the ball to the midfielders. The other game ball was presented to Chris Schott, who seemed to be everywhere on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. With Chris’s hustle, Pepperell dominated the midfield, which allowed Pepperell to have many great scoring opportunities.
Next week the team will be split into two groups to compete in the annual Pepperell Fall Classic Soccer Tournament.
