Taking Stock of the Hock: Boys Soccer 2015

IMG_0697_2
Who is the current soccer Player of the Year?
Lanigan:
Foxboro senior Devante Teixeira is off to a great start this season and has been arguably the toughest player to stop. Playing out wide, Teixeira has shown he can straight beat defenders and get to the line for a service or he can cut into the area and create an opportunity that way. He has been the beneficiary of some great work from teammates Anthony Barreira and Joe Morrison, among others, but he has made the most of his opportunities. His mix of speed, skill and vision make him very hard to stop.
Perry: The Foxboro trio of Devante Teixeira, Joe Morrison, and Anthony Barreira deserve recognition as do Brad Eames and Max Gurnon for the solidity of Kelley-Rex leaders Mansfield, but if I had to pick a Player of the Year right now it would be Oliver Ames senior Chris Romero. He isn’t a flashy player with tons of goals, but he is fourth in the league in points with 12 (six goals and six assists), while playing multiple roles for the Tigers from dropping into midfield, playing out on the wing, protecting the back four as a defensive mid and even playing sweeper to protect leads late. Nathanial Cardoza and Keegan Nutt have both had Player of the Year caliber seasons too, but Romero is a coach on the field and the leader of the best team in the Hock.
Who is the soccer Underclassman of the Year?
Lanigan: Sometimes it can be hard to justify a player’s worth if there aren’t stats to back it up, but there’s no question about how good Oliver Ames sophomore Nathaniel Cardoza has been this year. Playing in a center mid role, Cardoza have been a catalyst in the Tigers’ defense as well as the offense. Head coach John Barata has the ability to drop Cardoza a little deeper when OA gets a lead, which pads an already tough defense. Between Cardoza and sophomore midfielders Cam Vella, Matt Campbell and Mason Galbato, the future of OA’s midfield looks very good.
Perry: At the end of last year, I made the case that Joe Morrison deserved mention for the Player of the Year as a freshman and since he came back from an injury a couple games into this season Morrison has just continued his upward trajectory. Morrison is the fulcrum for a Foxboro attack and was sorely missed in Foxboro’s one loss this season. With Morrison in the midfield, the Warriors always have an outlet and someone who can be patient with the ball even under duress, which allows Devante Teixeira and Anthony Barreira to play higher up the pitch and push opposing defenses back with their pace. His ability to break a defense down, makes Foxboro the most dangerous offensive team in the Hock.
What has been the biggest surprise this season?
Lanigan: We had a feeling Foxboro, OA and Mansfield would all have good seasons and so far that is holding up. Meanwhile, the defending four time Kelley-Rex champs Franklin are sitting in a good spot with an 8-3 record. The three losses came in the first five games of the season and two of them to the current division leaders (Mansfield & OA). Unsurprisingly Austin Kent has one of the top players in the league while players like David Stowell, Brian Czuba, Farley Asmath and Kevin Hall have all stepped up to make plays at the right time. Despite graduating 16 seniors last year, the Panthers could be in play for a fifth straight division title.
Perry: Attleboro goalie Tyler Stowe is not a soccer player by trade. He’s much better known for being the ace of the Bombardiers pitching staff during baseball season. But after a real struggle in his opening game of the year against Foxboro, Stowe has emerged as a solid replacement for graduated keeper Jason Ross. Stowe may not be a Best XI choice this year, but it has been one position for Attleboro that started as a question mark and has turned into a strength. Stowe has three clean sheets and has only allowed four goals in 6-1/2 games behind an inexperienced Attleboro back line.

F – Devante Teixeira, Foxboro
At this point, which team will be going the furthest in the tournament?
Lanigan:
I think there are a couple of teams that have a good chance at making runs in the tournament this year. With Franklin, Mansfield and KP in D1, Oliver Ames and Stoughton in D2 and Foxboro in D3, we could see a run from all three divisions. When it comes to the question though, I think Oliver Ames has a good chance of getting back to where they were last year. Don’t be surprised if Foxboro gets further than they did last year and one of the D1 teams makes a run in a talented D1 South field.
Perry: I want to go out on a limb, but in the end the team I think will go the furthest in the tournament is the same team that went the furthest last year – Oliver Ames. The Tigers will have to run a gauntlet in Div. 2 with the usual suspects, including a very good Nauset team, but they are playing like a team that can make another run to the state final. With only one goal allowed this season, OA has the strength in defense and particularly in the midfield to battle just about any team in the state. The Tigers have arguably the most complete starting XI in the league. Maybe we could see a rematch of last year’s final with Concord-Carlisle?
What is your bold prediction for the rest of the season?
Lanigan:
I’m going to say that it either be Foxboro scoring 60 goals this season or Oliver Ames allowing six or less goals in the regular season. They might seem like random numbers but the Warriors have 32 goals just over halfway through and I think they can keep that face up in the remaining games. OA has only allowed one goal so far through nine games, and the sun played a big role. I picked six because that’s how many Franklin’s defense allowed last season, which was super impressive. They don’t exactly work together because the two teams have to play each other twice still so we’ll see.
Perry: My bold prediction for the rest of the season is that we end up seeing the same division champions as last year. Franklin is currently only a point behind Mansfield and the Panthers are picking up steam as the season wears on and the new players (which are numerous) get more experience. Franklin has given up only one goal since it lost to Mansfield and the rematch looms large on Oct. 19. OA has been dominant all season, but is only two points better than Foxboro at this stage with two meetings remaining. Don’t be surprised if that final game of the season at Ahern turns into a title decider just as it did last year and the Warriors sneak back into first.

Boys Soccer: 2015 Kelley-Rex Division Preview

By HockomockSports.com Staff

Attleboro

2014 Record: 12-6-3
2014 Finish: Reached MIAA D1 South Semifinal
Coach: Peter Pereira
The Bombardiers had a great 2014 regular season and then had an even better run in the playoffs, pulling off an upset of second-seeded New Bedford.
This year, the Bombardiers will be looking to get back to the postseason but there will be a challenge after graduating a group of talented, experienced players in the Class of 2015. The good news is that coach Peter Pereira has a good group of players this season. Zach Rodrigues, a player that has a ton of varsity experience, is a good starting spot for a team that will likely be right in the thick of the wide-open Kelley-Rex title race.
Junior Harry Lancaster is also back for his third year on varsity while Junior Coca will be another talented player in the middle of the field for Attleboro. Ahijah Joseph emerged as a credible player during his sophomore year and is back for what could be a breakout junior season.

Franklin

2014 Record: 13-2-5
2014 Finish: Reached MIAA D1 South Quarterfinal
Coach: Fran Bositis
For the past four seasons, the Panthers have claimed the Kelley-Rex division title. This year, it could be more of an uphill battle in order to claim a fifth straight.
The Panthers graduated 16 seniors and a good solid chunk of their starting lineup so a couple of strong returning players will be relied on heavily for coach Fran Bositis. Austin Kent is the only starter back and 2015 will be his third year on varsity. Hatim Brahimi had a big sophomore season last year and his junior campaign could be a big one for him.
“The focus has been on just trying to find the right mix of players right now,” Bositis said. “I know that the kids have worked really hard, and are in real good shape physically but we’ve got a ways to go before we call ourselves a good soccer team.”
Senior Nick Parent will see his role increase this year while Danny Geraci and Pat Kapples are two players who have some experience in the back. Henri Guilmette will step in as the new goalie and could have a breakout 2015.

King Philip

2014 Record: 9-6-4
2014 Finish: Reached MIAA D1 South First Round
Coach: Nick Gale
The Warriors were a tough team to beat last year and that should continue to be the case in 2015. Nick Gale steps in as the new head coach for the program as the Warriors will be a serious content to claim their first division title since 2010.
“In order to compete in a strong Hock league, we’re going to have to play intelligent, team and detail-oriented soccer and so far, this group has welcomed every challenge,” first-year head coach Nick Gale said. “These guys want to learn and compete in everything we do and I feel for these reasons, we will be successful this year.”
UMass Lowell-commit Joe Kellett has been one of the top players in the league for the past two years and with 2015 being his senior season, it would be the best one yet. The 2013 Underclassman of the Year has had to overcome some injuries but every year continues to have a serious impact on games. Kellett will be complemented by senior Clay Geuss in the midfield while sophomores Tyler Mann, Mike Rowe and Larsen Keys could play key roles. Defensively, the Warriors have some experience back with Ethan Edney, Cam Mullins, Ryan Coulter and Colby Koch. The Warriors are expecting to use a mix of youth and experience to take a run at the division title.

Mansfield

2014 Record: 3-8-7
2014 Finish: Missed playoffs
Coach: Steve Sheridan
Head coach Steve Sheridan is hoping there is some truth to the saying ‘defense wins championships.’ The Hornets were in a tough spot last year when they only had one starter back but with six back this season, Mansfield will have a lot more experience heading into 2015.
“My three captains have been very, very good throughout the offseason getting kids together playing,” Sheridan said, crediting seniors Brad Eames, Jared Miller and Chris Elsner for their work throughout the winter, spring and summer. “They noticed the need to be bigger and stronger and I credit their work in the offseason.”
Eames will patrol the middle of the pitch with the Hornets alongside junior James Chotkowski. Jared Miller will get an opportunity up top to try and provide a scoring punch while Sheridan expects big things from Michael Kirejczyk in goal.
However, the Hornets biggest strength will be the defense. Elsner is back in the middle alongside junior Max Gurnon. Sophomore Nick Hyland is back on the outside with some experience under his belt while the other spot is still being highly contested.

North Attleboro

2014 Record: 1-15-2
2014 Finish: Missed playoffs
Coach: Geoff Burgess
Similar to Mansfield, the Rocketeers will be relying on their defense this season. With both center backs returning and with last year’s goalie back again, North Attleboro will be looking to make it tough for opponents to score. Matt Coscarella and Gareth King are back in the middle of the defense while Rob Heaney will be back in net.
“I think we are going to be tough to score on,” head coach Geoff Burges said. “[We have] lots of speed and experience there.”
The key going forward for the Rocketeers will be fitting new faces into the offense. Gabe Pinhancos will take on a big role in the center of the midfield while junior Leo Charlebois and senior Yezan Ismail will be relied on up top to find the back of the net.

Taunton

2014 Record: 3-12-2
2014 Finish: Missed playoffs
Coach: Dave Purpura
The Tigers will be looking to get back to the playoffs after missing out this past season. With a good combination of experienced players and new talent, head coach Dave Purpura is hopeful for a bounce back 2015 campaign.
The combination of youth and experienced players could be a good formula with the division race wide open. Seniors Derek Pereira, Austin Botelho and Torin Mizuno are all back with a lot of varsity experience while younger players like sophomores Riccardo Da Fonseca, Daeshawn Duffy, Liam Crowley and freshman Hasan Farahat all could play vital roles this season.
“We are more skilled at more positions this season than last,” head coach Dave Purpura said.”We will need guys to step up and score goals from several positions to make up for a couple of key losses to graduation.”
Along with Mizuno and Da Fonseca in the back, seniors Luke Figueira and Matt Holt will be prominent figures. Sophomore goalie Marc DeSousa is back after earned the starting role midway through his rookie campaign.
“We are definitely a younger, deeper team than last year and I think the attitude and focus of the team is different,” Purpura said. “If we continue to improve as a group we could surprise some teams as we are a program trending in the right direction.”
