Win 2-0

The MPrep boys' JV soccer team started their 2019 season with a bang with a 2-0 victory over Wilbraham and Monson. On a wet and rainy day, the boys played hard all match and sealed the shut-out with a fantastic defensive stand at the end of the game. Captains Andrew Raps, '20 and Jake McCabe, '21, led the way for the Knights; Raps played fantastic defense all game, and McCabe generated great offensive opportunities throughout the match. The first goal of the match came right before the half, when freshmen striker Ben Bouchard, '23, put the ball in the back of the net after a scrum in front of the goalie. McCabe scored the second and final goal on a beautiful free-kick from about 30 yards out. The Knights' offensive attack was paced by returners Andre Looney, '21, and Ben Bouchard, '21, and newcomers Domenic Capalbo, '23, Tyler Whiteley, '23, and Bouchard created many offensive opportunities. The defense was lead by Raps, who with the help of wings Nick LaFlamme '22, and Joseph DiPietro, '23, held the Titans out of the offensive zone for a majority of the match. Sophomore sweeper Szymon Mamro cleaned up any opportunities that the Titans may have had, and GK Conor Allen, '21, was not forced to make many saves. The Knights look forward to continuing the win streak next week against Greens Farms Academy
