Boys JV Soccer vs. Portsmouth Abbey

Hyde: 1; Portsmouth Abbey: 1

The Hyde Wolfpack tied Portsmouth Abbey on Wednesday 25, September. Evan Berger ’14 was the man of the match for the Wolfpack. His play in goal included quick reflex saves and kept Hyde close in a well played game by both squads. The team was able to fight for possession and showed improved discipline on the defensive line. Jeremy Junyan Gu’s and Kevin Patel’s leadership in the back allowed the midfield to push for  goal opportunities. Despite several chances to score in the first half, Hyde was unable to find the net until Portsmouth Abbey gave up an own goal under pressure from Clemont Yichauan Hong and King Zekai Jin in the sixty-fith minute. Unfortunately, Portsmouth Abbey quickly evened the game with an arcing shot that was lost by the defense in the late afternoon sunset. Hyde hopes for a victory settled for a tough 1-1 draw.
