Mystic Valley Boys’ Soccer Plays to Scoreless Tie
The Mystic Valley boys’ soccer team played North Shore – Essex Agricultural COOP to a 0-0 on Friday. “The boys played a fantastic game with a lot of great opportunities and are starting to work very well as a team” said Coach Carlos-Luis Brown after the game.
The Eagles needed the point as they are in the middle of the tough part of their schedule. On Tuesday they lost to powerhouse St. Mary’s at the Manning Bowl by a score of 3-0. Goalie Michael Russo-Penta held off a very strong offensive unit with over 52 saves in the game.
“The story for the last two games has been the defense. Giuseppe Iacovone, Joseph Dailey, Elvent Chenh Tu and Christopher Poulos have been a very solid set of backs and making it very difficult for teams to shoot at close range. The offense has had a lot of great runs and had a few opportunities but they were just unable to find the back of the net. Great hustle and heart through the entire game, I could not have asked for more from my players” said Coach Brown after the game.
The Eagles play again on Friday against Chelsea. The team has been playing very well defensively and is looking to pull an upset.
