WILMINGTON, MA — Below are Wilmington Youth Soccer in-town game summaries from Saturday, May 13, 2017.
Boys Pre-K Game:
The crowds gathered at the Shawsheen fields for this back and forth game between the Harvard Pre-Kinder soccer team and itself, wearing Highlighter Blue and orange pennies. One could only believe the silence of the crowd was due to the fantastic ball skill of Declan Riley, Charlie Kennedy, and Graham Jackson. However it did not take long for the crowd to cheer as goals were scored by Blake Santo, Landon Woods, and Johnny Borgen. The Harvard defensive stand made by Braydon Doe, and Declan Riley could only be viewed as heroic. Leo Snapausky, Liam DeRose, Wyatt Pilcher, and Conley Usher are also great team contributors who will continue to keep the crowd on the edge of their seats.
Boys Kinder Games:
Houston Dynamo vs. DC United
On the other side of the ball for the Houston Dynamo was an incredible offensive performance by Jayden Anderson, while goals scored by Lucas Pereira, Nikolas Dordovic, and Henry Borgen got the Dynamo on the board. With a rock solid defensive stand led by Alexander Dimitriadis and Anthony Graziano the Dynamo was never out of this game. The midfield team of Joseph Lane and Robert Miller could only be classified as awesome.
Chicago Fire vs. Colorado Rapids
The crowd was kept on the edge of their seats this week as the Chicago Fire, led by the offensive skills of Andrew Poyant, Max Brugel, and Lucas Madden resulted in goals by Sean Marazi. The defense was not to be left out of this one either as Michael Defilippo, Evan Jageler, and Cameron White kept the ball out of their zone for much of the game.
Girls Kinder Games:
Boston Breakers vs. Portland Thorns
Nobody stayed home for this action packed game. The Boston Breakers Isabella Digiovanni, Eliana Goldstein, Leah Tucci, Marley White, and Julia Zaya scored, getting the crowd jumping out of their seats. The flawless defense of Gia Cabral and Emelia Roya provided great protection for the Breakers.
Houston Dash vs NC Courage
One could only believe the silence of the crowd was due to the teams fantastic ball skills. However it did not take long for the crowd to cheer as goals were scored by Ashley Anderson, Charlotte Doucette, Ava Zella and Olivia Zella. The Houston Dash’s defensive stand made by Elizabeth DiSchino and Katherine McGrath could only be viewed as heroic..
Girls Grade 1 Games:
Houston Dash vs. Boston Breakers
The HOUSTON DASH’s Meghan Warford, Caroline Broussard, Abby O’Donoghue and Emily Laquidara stayed on their toes creating many scoring opportunities. The plays of Georgia Hanson, Sarah Najarian and Sophia Kulsa shut down the other end of the field on defense that set the tone for this game.
Boys Grade 2 Games:
New York Red Bulls vs. Houston Dynamos
The Houston Dynamos’ defensive stand, led by Thomas Demers, not only struck fear into the New York Red Bulls, but will be feared by future opponents as well. Dante DiGiovanni and Christopher Cali covered the whole field, supporting defensive plays, moving the ball throughout the field, and creating scoring opportunities on offense. Hats off to Nathan DiSchino, Sanjeev Puvanendrakumar, and Matthew Lawler who led the team’s most powerful scoring charge of the team’s season! The Houston Dynamos showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with as they head into the second half of the season showing amazing teamwork and terrific work ethic!
