The North Haven High School Boys’ Soccer Team has been working diligently over the past two seasons to improve as individuals and as a team. The team is fairly young and although we have excellent potential, it takes time to develop and improve, especially when playing such a difficult SCC schedule. Although we experienced many ups and downs this season, the coaching staff would like to focus on the team’s accomplishments as a whole. The team opened the season with a 7 to 0 win over Putnam High School, scoring some very memorable goals. We also had a very exciting “come from behind” tie against Wolcott High School, who was leading 3-1. That result ended 3-3. Some of our best matches ended up in defeat, but against very strong LL teams. For example, we lost 2-1 (home) and 1-0 (away) to Wilbur Cross, who finished the season with 12 wins. The NHHS Boys’ Soccer Team was also recognized as being the Hammonasset Outstanding Sportsmanship Team of the year, only receiving two yellow cards in 16 matches.
The coaching staff believes that the future of NHHS Boys’ Soccer is very bright and the hard work, dedication, and improvement that has been demonstrated by the members of the team will lead to future success. We would like to commend our 5 seniors for leading by example and thank them for helping the younger players on the team mature and improve.
We look forward to next season…we are hungry and determined to prove ourselves!
