got off to a great spring start. Dean Nichols made his coaching debut, and the U10 team won 1-0 against the . (3.2M ) was tremendous in goal with the league's first shutout, and Ryan Combe scored a nifty goal to put the Devils in front for good. Mike Keogh (1.2M) was a force up front, taking on defenders, and the rest of the squad came through in all facets of the game. Next up is the home opener at sold out Merchant field at 230pm
The U14 team fell behind early 1-0, but proceeded to hammer five goals home, two of which were disallowed and wound up on Sportscenter's not top 10. Bryant Nardizzi, George Kokkalis and Igor Lemos scored for the Reds, while the netminding was superb between George, Mike Rotchford and starter Jake Stetson. The squad played some great through balls and defended to a T, but the man of the match was undoubtably Mr Matt Gramigna, who shed 10 pounds early in the week after a trip to the barber. Matt would not speak to reporters after the match, but his sidekick Igor Lemos eagerly grabbed the mike and blasted the field conditions, the numerous "Long Pond" Exits in Plymouth, the concierge at the Quincy Marriot, and the McDonald's food chain which supplied him with the 10 piece nuggets that he devoured before the match.
Next up the U14 team takes on old indoor rivals the Black Knights at sold out Merchant field.
