Boys Middle School Soccer: Green Mountain 4 Leland & Gray 1

Monday, Sept. 17

The Chieftains put together a nearly complete game winning 4-1 over Leland and Gray. GM got all four goals from Mack Walton, including a nice one on one move eluding the Rebel’s goalie. Walton’s efforts were aided by the attention paid to fellow striker Jeremy Fleming drawing coverage in the offensive zone as well as Ben Haseltine feeding balls in to the center.

The defense was anchored by goalie Jon Little as well as solid contributions along the back line from Brian Anderson, Tuck Wunderle and Sean Kenney “preventing Leland & Gray from capitalizing on any ball past midfield,” according to coach Ashley Carafiello.

With a team that is well-conditioned and counts on each player playing multiple roles, Carafiello values their versatility saying, “It is important to have this flexibility. Through our practices, every player is responsible for learning and being able to play every position on the field.”

Even with a solid start to the season at 1-0-1, the Chiefs will take no opponent lightly. “I consider every game to be a ‘big’ game,” says their coach. “You just never know what is going to happen.”
Next game home vs. Black River, 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19.
