Boys Soccer Remains Unbeaten

Kyle Osborne, Contributer

Over the past two weeks, Cohasset Boys Soccer has had a series of tough matches to conclude the month of September. Wrapping up spirit week, the boys faced D1 powerhouse Weymouth on the turf for an epic saturday night lights game. The game had an intense pace as the ball was moved around fast. Cohasset took a late lead from a goal by Lucas Federle assisted from Jack Simmons:1-0. The Wildcats quickly responded by adding two points to the score in seven minutes: 2-1. With ten minutes left, Kyle Osborne drew a penalty kick and scored it: 2-2. The boys held in a defensive position for the rest of the game to preserve the tie. Outstanding game from Ian Apps and Ben Smith. 

Only two days later, the team hosted Randolph in an important must-win league match. Randolph being a tough D3 team with a playoff spot in sight, this was going to be a well fought match. After the first 40 min, the score was 2-0 Cohasset. After the final whistle, the end result was 6-0 with goals scored by Christian Loft, Lucas Federle, Kyle Osborne, Jack Simmons, Whit Swartwood, and Quentin Humphrey. Great game from Jack Elliot for being a crucial part of the midfield.

On the 25th of September, the Team traveled to Rockland in another must-win league match against another D3 force, The Rockland Bulldogs. Cohasset had control for most parts of the game. Knocking on the door multiple times, Cohasset couldn’t seem to get one in the back of the net. A frustrating outcome of 0-0 added another tie to the record, however, the team remains undefeated. Jack Simmons created multiple offensive opportunities while Reese Froio had an unbelievable game holding the defense together. 

This past Saturday, the team faced the fierce D2 Pembroke Titans. Right off the bat the game had a physical feature. Senior Kyle Osborne was taken out of the game within the first minute. Cohasset did well defending Boston Globe Player of the Week nominee Luke Sia, preventing him from scoring a goal. After a vicious 80 minute, the final result was 0-0 improving Cohasset record to 6-0-4. Cohasset’s defense is what has been keeping them in big games like these.
