On "Senior Night" at East Hampton High School the boys soccer team dealt Westbrook High a very one-sided loss 4-1. The score does not reflect the dominance that the Bellringers asserted for 80min. Shots on goal were 20-1 and most of the evening was spent in the Westbrook end. Seniors Nathaniel Heroux, Dan Wall, Nate Landry, Tom Killilea, Ben Boscarino, Jerry Root, Trent Stevens, Paul Phelps, and Cody Mallory all saw significant playing time and did an admirable job in handling the Westbrook 11.
Jordan Casey got the scoring started when he was taken down in the box and hit the resulting PK. Paul Phelps then tallied with a strong shot from the right side followed quickly by Kyle Stiano's break away and the last score by Conner Wall was a strong push just outside the goal box. A missed PK would have made it more lopsided but it was not to be. The defense was once again dominant and only one real shot on goal ever made it to Austin Tierney. Senior Co-Captain Nathaniel Heroux once again dominated from his sweeper post stopping any serious Westbrook try. It was Heroux that started many of the East Hampton runs as has been the case all season. Ben Boscarino and Phil Moon continue to be monsters on the defensive side.
It was 4-0 with 15min. left when coach Boscarino pulled his starters and let the underclassmen get some playing time. Next up is Hale Ray in the Shoreline Tournament semi-final. Hale-Ray is a much different opponent and East Hampton will definetly have to have their game faces on. The Bellringers need to dig deep and decide who they are as a team. I think the seniors sent a clear message now they just have to make it happen.
