Boys JV soccer suffers loss to crosstown rival FHN 4-0

On Tuesday night, the boys JV soccer team headed away from home to take on the crosstown rival Forest Hills Northern Huskies. The boys, however, could not pull off the victory as they went on to be defeated by the Huskies 4-0. 

The Huskies started off strong and were able to score off of three shots from outside the 18-yard box, and then proceeded to score off of a shot from a much closer range. Despite this loss, the Rangers played with much more intensity and felt better than they have in the past. Their only blunder was the inability to finish some of their chances in the attacking half of the field. 

With an outstanding performance from several Rangers in today’s game, the game was much closer than the score alludes to. Freshman Myles Shoham played aggressively at the attacking center midfield position and did an exceptional job at winning the ball in the middle, where he then proceeded to build the ball up for the attack on the Huskies’ goal. Alongside him was freshman Byrce Notarnicola. Bryce had a stellar game at forward and had several good shots from several different distances around FHN’s 18-yard box. Not to mention, Bryce was very helpful in not only the creation of his own chances, but also finding his teammates and aiding them with their chances at the net. 

On the defensive side of the game, freshmen Gavin O’Meara and Wyat Butler had a very impressive game on the backline. They were given the difficult task of guarding the Huskies’ best player and were able to hold him off to very few shots on goal. The rest of the defensive line also had a very strong performance and did as much as they possibly could to keep FHN’s aggressive attack to a minimum. 

The boys JV soccer team will play next when they take on the Lowell Red Arrows this Thursday, September 12 at 5:00 PM.
