MVS Week In Review

MAISAD Semifinals

Hyde  0

Hebron  2

Hyde ended their season with a 0-2 loss to the Lumberjacks from Hebron

on Wednesday afternoon.  Without some key players, Hyde managed to

hold their own for most of the match.  However, Hebron’s speed and

athleticism was too much for the Phoenix to handle in the end.  Hebron

scored two first half goals from midfielder Joseph Collins.  The

second half saw much better play from Hyde.  In particular, Scott

Georgalalis ’12 did an outstanding job defending Collins.  With the

help from goal Keeper Alec Randall’s ’12 fifteen saves, Hyde shut out

the Lumberjacks in the second half.  Late in the game the forward duo

of Wes Freston ’11 and Jack Xu ’14 almost combined for a goal, but

Jack’s one-time shot just went wide.  Other standouts were Wilson

Macmillan ’14 for his tireless work ethic in the midfield and Brendan

Trometer ’11 for his fine defensive effort.  Although they did not win

the game, the coaches were pleased with the effort that was put forth on the pitch.  The lads should be proud off all they accomplished this fall.

 Hyde  2

Kents Hill  5

In a rematch from the previous week, Hyde fell to Kents Hill 2-5. 

Hyde improved from the last time these two teams met and the game was

much closer than the score indicated.   The Phoenix stuck to their

game plan and contained the Kents Hill potent attack for a good

portion of the match.  However, Ethan Ford was outstanding and scored

four goals for KH.  Abu Mannachi added one.  Jamal Borden ’13 scored

for Hyde in the first half and Nabil Eshraghian ‘13 scored in the

second half, assisted by Juno Ra’ 11.  The score was 3-2 for most of

the second half until Kents Hill scored two late goals to add to their

total. Leo Shan ‘11 was man of the match for Hyde for doing a stellar

defensive job marking, arguably, the best player in the MAISAID

conference, Abu Mannaachi. Alec Randall ‘12 played a solid game in

net, recording 17 saves. Hyde will travel to Hebron on Friday for their last regular season game before the MAISAD tournament.
