For the first time in eight years, the boys’ varsity soccer team advanced to the second round of the PAISSAA Tournament beating Haverford School 2-0.
“I am so proud of this team for making it to the second round of the PAISAA Tournament and for pushing the second-ranked team in the state to their limit,” said Head Coach Glenn Curry. “During the season, each player fought hard, contributed to each win, and played their hearts out in each and every game. They are a great group of young men and I will always have fond memories of coaching them this season.”
The team fell 2-1 to Springfield-Chestnut Hill in the second round of the tournament.
“Beating Haverford in the first round of states was a super cool experience, especially because so many students showed up to watch and really brought the energy,” said Captain Bill Becker ’22. “Even though we ended up losing in the next round, being the first team since 2013 and only the second-ever soccer team in school history to advance past the first round in the PAISAA tournament is still something to be extremely proud of.”
Overall this season the team went 11-5-1 including wins over league competitors Westtown, Friends Select, Friends Central, and Germantown Friends.
Of the season, Glenn said, “This team had a great mentality towards practicing,” said Glenn. “They held each other accountable throughout the season. Due to these practice habits, the team was better prepared to win games and that is exactly what they did.”
