Boys soccer team wins title
Wildcats take home River Valley championship 4-1
∎ The Dublin School boys’ varsity soccer team captured their second straight River Valley Athletic League Championship with a 4-1 victory over the Four Rivers School on Sunday. The Wildcats’ goals were scored by four different players: Harry Flores, Hyelom Love, Ben Phillips and Calvin Bates. Cem Ozdeliorman contributed three assists. Jesse Garrett-Larsen helped to control the midfield and was backed up by strong defensive play by Tyler Jones. Grant Holliday earned the win in goal with key saves at pivotal moments throughout the game.
∎ The Dublin School sailing team’s Brewster Series began on Oct. 19. The race took place on Dublin Lake on a moderate day of wind. There was an A fleet and a B fleet, but Dublin sailors jumped in and out with every switch so that every sailor who wanted to was on the water for the race. It was a good day for sailors as a whole and though Brewster’s team beat some of Dublin’s boats, Dublin did well.
The final regatta in the Brewster Series was hosted by Brewster Academy on Oct. 26. The A fleet consisted of skippers Will Hamer and G.H. Werowinski and crews Matt Coffin and Leah Star. Dublin did not win the A fleet, but Hamer and Coffin had strong finishes. Werowinski and Star worked very hard and started incredibly well during their first race. The wind picked up immensely during the final two A fleet races, and Werowinski and Star were the first out onto the water, though they capsized twice. Dublin’s B fleet consisted of skippers Hope Forgaard and Derek Dieter and crews Dylan Alter and Michael Shultz. The B fleet also worked hard and did well. The high wind A races were the last ones of the day because the wind was just too strong. This was Dublin School’s last race of the season.
∎ Dublin School’s boys’ JV soccer team lost to Kimball Union Academy 4-0 on Oct. 27. Dublin fought to the end (with no subs) without slowing down, but was not able to strike a positive rhythm offensively. Cam Harrington was loud and aggressive in goal. He had several saves, including one off of a penalty kick.
The JV soccer team also traveled to Vermont Academy on Nov. 2 and took on a very strong team. Vermont controlled the ball throughout and finished a number of good opportunities. Facing heavy pressure all day, Danny Figueroa and Ningda Xiong did a nice job on defense. The Wildcats hope to rebound in the last two games of the season.
