Soccer Take To The Road

This past weekend when the team hit the road, they had their first loss of the season as Northfield Mount Hermon overtook the Wolverines 4-0. Although the team worked hard, Northfield proved to be the better team. Coach Ashenfelter stated after the game, “on that day they were simply better- better focused, organized, and more determined to get a result. We will learn from our mistakes and move forward.”

The team then traveled to Springfield, MA to take on the Pride of Springfield College. With little rest in between game, the Wolverines rebounded well with what Coach Ashenfelter felt was the team’s best 90 minute performance to date. On defense the team played together and enjoyed a lot of possession throughout the game. After the game Coach Ashenfelter mention it was “some unlucky breaks and a lack of the finishing touch prevented us from getting the game winner, but I am confident that the goals are just around the corner!”

With a 1-1-1 record, the Wolverine are practicing hard to prepare for their next matchup at the Belmont Hill School this Wednesday at 4:00 P.M.
