Sports Announcements in from the Coaches:
Yesterday afternoon, there were fireworks over nearby Shulman Field, as the Freshmen Dragon Boys Soccer team squared off against a very talented Lewiston side. The Blue Devils struck early and frequently, building a 3 to 0 lead by about 20 minutes in, but the Dragons kept clawing back, with their intense pressure causing the Devils to put the ball into their own net with Tucker Gagnon closing in looking for a goal. Zeke Spiro then took a nifty ‘thru-ball’ pass from Ricardo Morales Silva and slotted it into the corner of the Devil goal to narrow the lead to 3-2. Moments later Tom Labbe equalized the score with a shot too hot for the Lewiston goalkeeper to handle, energizing the Drag
ons even more. In the second half, the pressure from the Dragons continued to frustrate the Devils. The battle remained deadlocked until the final minutes of the game, when Lewiston scored what appeared to be the game-winning goal. However, the Dragons were not to be outdone on this day, as they marched back down the field and Tom Labbe put home a long Josh Doring cross in the upper corner of the goal to earn the 4-4 tie. Dragon keeper Kyle DeLong was the “man of the match”, making several acrobatic saves in the second half, and making 10 total for the game. The Dragons will play home again on Wednesday, taking on the Yarmouth Clippers over at Shulman Field set for a 3:30 start time.
