Hyde School: 9
Bradford Christian: 1
The Wolfpack traveled to Amesbury Massachusetts to play a match with Bradford Christian Academy Friday evening. The game was played on artificial turf under the lights in cool and clear weather.
Post Graduate Captain Maulid Abdow scored 3 goals in the first 15 minutes of the game. This was followed by the opponent scoring on a penalty kick in the 35th minute. This, the result of a charge on goal keeper PG Steven Waddill, who fouled a player while coming out for a ball in the box. The score at halftime was 3-1.
Cooper Felt`19 notched one off a rebounding ball that rung the cross bar off a Will Duerr`18 header in the 49th minute. Jed Danforth`19 scored the first of 2 goals in the 59th minute on an assist from Post Graduate Captain Mwesa Mulonda. Mulonda scored in the 75th minute, followed by Liam Monahan`18 and Josh Benoliel`19 in the final two minutes of the game.
Other notable play came from Ale’ Atkins`20 who had numerous shots in the first half of play from the right winger position. Additionally, Derrick Rwikangura`19 had some stealthy maneuverers and threatening shots while playing at striker. Defensively, Altug Yilmaz`18 and Zuri Campbell`19 locked it down at left and right fullback respectively.
This was a good game us. All the player, starters and those coming in from the bench, played some of their best soccer of the season. They maintained possession well and worked as a unit when building scoring opportunities. This, coupled with strong defensive, play resulted in a victory. Our next match is at home on Wednesday October 4th at 2pm with Gould Academy.
