Blessed Trinity Dominates Our Lady Of Hope
The Blessed Trinity second grade boys soccer team took on Our Lady of Hope at home this past Saturday, seeking revenge for an earlier loss to Hope on the road. To say they were ready to rumble is to put it mildly. The boys dominated this game from the opening whistle.
Ed Coyne, running down the left side of the field, opened the scoring at the six minute mark with a hard shot from 30 feet out which beat the Hope goalie. Luca Perrotta, streaking towards the goal, was pulled down from behind and was awarded a penalty shot at the 16 minute mark. Perotta lined up his shot and scored. The boys kept the pressure up, but the Hope goalie made save after save, and was the reason the score was only 2-0 at the half. T J McIlhinney threw a shut out of his own in goal for Blessed Trinity.
Owen Ryan, in goal for the second half, was charged to keep Hope off the board. Perrotta scored his second goal of the game at the five minute mark to make the score 3-0. Tommy Davey broke free of the defense and shot just wide of the goal at the 10 minute mark.
The boys could have let up, but Jack Ryan took a pass near midfield and broke in on goal and scored from the left side with a well placed shot from 20 feet out making the score 4-0 at the 18 minute mark.
The boys, remembering the loss at Hope, continued to press and were rewarded with another goal when McIlhinney scored at the 21 minute mark making the score 5-0. The boys jumped and roared, for McIlhinney is usually in goal, not on the offensive side of the field. Coyne finished the scoring onslaught with his second goal of the game, after a scramble in front of the net, at the 22 minute mark. The game ended 6-0 and the boys had their revenge for the early season loss at Hope.
All of the boys contributed with terrific play on defense and offense. Sean Hanley, Christopher Tennyson, Patrick Kelly, Conor Regan, Jack Galligan, James Wageman, Brian Yorke, Aidan McCormack, and Owen Singleton all played a terrific game.
Next game for the boys is a home game against St. Francis of Assisi which is scheduled for October 29 at 10:15 a.m. at the Roxbury field. Come root these young men on, as they continue to represent our community with outstanding sportsmanship.
