Wolfpack Varsity Lax Takes on Worcester Academy, 12-6

Hyde: 12
Worcester Academy: 6

Hyde played host today to Worcester Academy in front of a packed crowd on family weekend here in Woodstock.  Hyde jumped out to an early 4-0 lead on some beautiful goals from the attack trio of Joe Yanovitch ’13, Kevin McMorrow ’12 and Jared Larsen ’13. Hyde was able to contain the Worcester offense thanks to defensive mid-field specialists

Ethan Thoms ’12 a.k.a “the wizard”, Graham Davidson ’13 and long pole middie Zack Cereme ’12 to hold Worcester to 2 goals in the first half of play. Goalie Cullum Thompson ’12 was superb in net stopping a barrage of shots and throwing outlet passes that resulted in numerous fast break opportunities.

In the second half, Worcester went on a run and closed the gap to 8-4 but thanks to the Hyde attack “trio”  Larsen ’13, McMorrow ’12 and Yanovitch ’13 Hyde was able to extend their lead and pulled away with a 12-6 victory. Next up Rocky Hill.
