WILMINGTON, MA — Below is Wilmington Youth Soccer travel game summary from Saturday, May 12, 2018.
Wilmington Boys 12-3
Wilmington – 8, Wakefield – 0
The Wildcats got on the board early when Jack Bourque deflected a punt by the Wakefield goalie back into their zone and Jack ‘Marcelo’ Murphy stole the ball from the defender and put it into the lower left corner of the net. A few minutes later, Lukas Poirier stole the ball from another defender and found the same corner of the frame to put the Wildcats ahead 2-0.
The scoring continued when Marcelo teed up a shot for Jackson McDonald that found the back of the net. With Jackson’s goal, every member of the team has notched a goal since the team began playing together in the fall. Ryan Quamme followed up with a goal on a shot about 30 yards out that found its way through the Wakefield defense and beat the keeper. Mick Keogan intercepted a Wakefield corner kick and broke the length of the field to round out the first half scoring for the Wildcats.
Both teams played to a stalemate to start the second half. It wasn’t until late in the game that Wilmington got back on the board. Lincoln Levesque stole the ball just over half field and broke to the net and beat the goalie. Tyler Florencio then found a breaking Mick in stride with a punt that led to Mick’s second goal of the day. Lincoln also picked up a brace when he just beat Kaleb Molina to a Mick rebound that he blasted home as time expired.
The defensive trio of Layne Coutu, Oliver Ferrer and Zack Guyette combined to limit Wakefield’s chances. Despite a strong push by the Warriors near the end of the game, Tyler, Mick and Jackson were able to combine in goal to complete the shutout.
