With a final score of 5-1, boys varsity soccer earned a definitive win against #2 seed Pingree School on Sunday, November 18th, at Worcester Academy, making them NEPSAC Class C champions!
"Our signatures all season long—a stingy defense, hard work in the midfield, and a potent offense—proved to be the difference," said Head Boys Varsity Soccer Coach John Siegenthaler. "The Mustangs experienced both the joy of victory and the satisfaction that comes from achieving a common goal."
The Mustangs had an outstanding season with an overall record of 15-4, and this is the second year in a row that the Mustangs competed in the championship game. Sunday's victory was truly a team effort, with Ousseni Bouda '19 opening the scoring in the fifth minute of the game. Pingree proved to be a worthy opponent and created numerous chances of their own, but they were unable to score more than one goal as our back four—Hugo Darmon '19, Sean Colman '19, Peter Conte '19, and Will Simons '19—played magnificent defense in the face of relentless pressure from their skilled opponents.
Jacob Domber '20, Robbie Roberts '20, and Collin Tardio '19 were steady in the midfield, channeling the opposition away from the Mustang net while also launching counters. Ben Sosnow '19 and Joseph Grossman '19 were also tireless in their pursuit of the ball, each driving repeatedly into the Pingree zone to launch dangerous crosses into the box. Ousseni Bouda '19 was a true offensive force, scoring all five of Millbrook's goals, bringing his total to 10 goals in his final two games. His skill, speed, and determination were insurmountable.
"Looking at the body of work this team put together, it is hard not to be amazed," said Athletic Director Brian Krauss. "From the captains on down, it was clear that everyone was on the same page, working toward the same goal. Well done all around!"GO MUSTANGS!Click here
