Kents Hill 5
Hyde ran into a talented Kents Hill team on Saturday, 10/23. The Kents Hill attack was too much for Hyde as they fell to the Huskies 1-5. KH converted a penalty kick three minutes into the match for a foul in the box. Anchored by Brendan Trometer ’11, Alex Biedermann ’11 and Nat Abernethy ‘11 the Phoenix defense was extremely active the entire match trying to contain the KH forwards. However, their speed and precision was difficult to handle as KH scored two more goals in the first half. Hyde made some adjustments at halftime and held KH to two goals in the second half. Late in the game, Wilson MacMillan ’14 scored for Hyde on a well-struck shot from 18 yards out. Brendan Trometer ‘11 played inspiring soccer throughout the game. Man of the match went to Alec Randall ’12 for his composure and finishing the game with 23 saves. Hyde will host KH on Wednesday at 3:30PM.
