Boys Soccer Preliminary Playoff Game Ends 1-3

By: Charlie Haberstock

At 3:00 last Friday afternoon, the boys’ soccer team faced the Brewer Witches in the Preliminary Playoff round of the Class B North conference. The team fought hard but eventually fell short, losing 1-3. Although Waterville outshot Brewer 29-9, it’s the shots that make the net that count. “We had plenty of opportunities, but we just couldn’t find the back of the net as they did,” says Josiah Bloom, who played 78 minutes on Friday. Bloom credits the Brewer goalie’s impressive performance for the loss, saying he read the shots extremely well. Even though Waterville didn’t come home victorious, the team still has a lot to be proud of. This game marks the end of an impressive season from a talented soccer team.
