Boys soccer joins Girls in advancing to RVAL Championship game on Monday on the back of a 2-1 victory over Academy at Charlemont. Charlemont's back line plays very high up on the field, and we have several breakaway chances early. Fab Joseph (Easton, PA) converts on a breakaway at the 7 minute mark. On another breakaway, Charlemont's goalie challenges Fab near the top of the 18. The ball ricochets off, and Quinn Wilson (Dublin, NH) lobs the ball into the goal from about 40 yards out. Joe DuPont-Roche (Peterborough, NH) makes three saves in the first half to preserve the shutout.
In the second half, Charlemont's defense doesn't allow any more breakaway chances, and they hold us scoreless. Charlemont scores with 17 minutes left to make the game 2-1, but Joe DuPont-Roche (Peterborough, NH) comes up with another great save near the end of the game, preventing overtime.
