The ball deflected off a Foxboro defender and down to sophomore James Jennings, who took a touch before turning and blasting a shot in at the near post for the winner. Matt Baur played well in net for his second shutout of the season. Foxboro’s best chance came in the final moments of the first half as a long throw from Pradyu Gubbala was bounced around in the area before sophomore Jackson Maling latched on but his bid hit off the inside of the post and bounced back to Baur for the save.

North Attleboro, 2 @ Milford, 1 – FinalNorth Attleboro scored twice in the final 15 minutes, including the game-winner with just under five minutes to play to stun the Scarlet Hawks at home. The hosts took the lead in the 33rd minute off a set piece as Arthur Tome touched a free kick from just outside the box in play and Nick Ribeiro smashed a shot off the far post upper 90 and in. Milford carried that lead until the 66th minute when North pulled level with a quick attack. Zach Smahi played Quinn Conley in behind the defense and he slide a low shot past the keeper that eluded the Hawks’ defense and was smashed home a step out by Kaden Burns to make it 1-1. In the 75th minute, a long throw from Jeremy Carter was flicked on by Bryce Newth and deflected off a Milford defender right to Carson Dameron, who calmly cut the ball onto his left foot and slide a shot to the far post for the winner.

But once again, the visitors answered as Aidden Fitting hooked up with Ian Robicheau for the equalizer.

2022 Hockomock Boys Soccer Players to Watch

Rex Cinelli, Junior – Franklin

Franklin junior Rex Cinelli has been a mainstay in the Panthers’ back four over the past two seasons, and for good reason. The league was littered with talented center backs last year and Cinelli was right there at the top and earned HockomockSports.com Best XI honors. He sets the tone with his strong aerial challenges, consistently winning important challenges from clearances and crosses. But he’s also very good with the ball at his feet and that allows the Panthers to play out of the back and keep possession. Franklin is always well organized in the back and Cinelli is a big reason for that.

Matt Crago, Senior – Matt Crago

King Philip had a lot of new faces in its lineup last season after graduating over a dozen players from the class of 2020, and then the Warriors had to deal with an abundance of injuries throughout the year. One versatile piece back in the puzzle this season for head coach Mike O’Neill is midfielder Matt Crago. Crago is a true box-to-box player that we’ve seen play in the heart of the field before, but can also venture out to the wing if needed. Wherever the ball is on the field, Crago isn’t far off — whether it’s sitting deep in the midfield to help the defense and then offer an outlet option out of the back, or in the attack with the ball at his feet looking for diagonal runs behind the defense. And he showed last year (and so far this preseason) the ability to score from distance and make things happen as he pushes forward.

Carson Dameron, Junior – North Attleboro

Although just a junior, Carson Dameron begins his third year as a member of the North Attleboro varsity program and the Rocketeers will be looking to lean on his experience as they try to challenge in a crowded Kelley-Rex division. A crafty midfielder, Dameron was North’s honorable mention selection for Hock All Stars a season ago. The Rocketeers trust him with the ball at his feet and he is a good decision maker — whether it’s to play in a service (like his assist in the Leach & Garner Cup last year) or to have a go from distance (his blast from just outside the area in overtime against Dartmouth smacked off the underside of the bar and stayed out). North was a relatively young squad last season so, with a bit more experience, the Rocketeers will be a team to keep an eye on.

Rhys Davis, Senior – Sharon

Sharon senior Rhys Davis is coming off a great junior season, and would likely have been a HockomockSports Best XI selection in any other year except the 2021 season featured the deepest pool of talent at that position in a long time. Back again this season to anchor the Eagles’ defense, Davis is right near the top of the list of best defenders in the Hockomock League and in the surrounding region. Sharon is another team that fought its way through some injury challenges last season but so far so good this season for the most part, and behind a talented and sizable senior class — Davis is one of 16 seniors on the squad — the Eagles are a serious contender for the Davenport division title. Davis will partner with classmate Tyler Goodman in the middle of the defense with fellow seniors Tony Yang and Malachi Diaz, and that will give Sharon a formidable, veteran back line with Davis right in the heart of it all.

Jake McCabe, Senior – Canton

Canton had a terrific season a year ago and one of the several reasons for that was the emergence of Jake McCabe as one of the most dangerous attacking players in the Hock, and by the season’s end, one of the best in the state. McCabe has all of the skills and intangibles that you want in your No. 9: a great touch, speed, vision, and as he showed just about every team he played last year, the ability to finish. Despite defenses preparing and game planning for him throughout the year, McCabe found his way to 13 regular season goals (tied for most in the Hock) and three more during the Bulldogs’ run to the state finals. He’s already off to a great start with a goal in Canton’s first league game and that’s likely just the first of many this season.

Casey Milliken, Sophomore – Oliver Ames

It’s not often an underclassman makes the list, but it’s an easy choice after watching what Oliver Ames sophomore Casey Milliken during as a freshman during the 2021 campaign. Strictly by the numbers, Milliken had 10 goals (fourth most in the Hock) and 11 assists (second most in the Hock) to finish the regular season with a league-high 21 points — as a freshman. But there’s much more than just the numbers. Milliken covers a ton of ground and has a high work rate. If the ball is in the area, expect Milliken to provide a hard challenge and quickly turn defense into offense for the Tigers. OA graduated some key weapons but there is plenty of talent still back, and Milliken is off to a flying start with an assist in the opener and essentially created both of OA’s final goals.

Riley Rebello, Senior – Taunton

There aren’t many players in the league that can play in as many positions at such a high level as Taunton senior Riley Rebello. Over the past two seasons (although the 2020 campaign was brief for the Tigers), we’ve seen Rebello up top scoring goals, sitting in as the holding mid, pushing up as an attacking center mid, or anchoring the defense at center back. And it seems wherever he goes, that part of the field becomes a strength for the Tigers. He earned HockomockSports Best XI honors a year ago at center back but it looks like he’ll venture more into the attacking third this season from the middle of the pitch. It’s nothing overly flashy from Rebello but his play is consistent and reliable, and you can count on him to make the right play.

Nick Ribero, Senior – Milford

Milford has enjoyed a resurgence of the past couple of seasons with four straight division titles (two Davenport, the past two Kelley-Rex division), and over that span, the Scarlet Hawks have had some of the top players in the Hock come through the program. An Eastern Mass. All Star selection a year ago, Milford senior Nick Ribero is right up there with the best of them. Patrolling the center of the pitch, Ribero is such a vital piece in the heart of the midfield, and everything they do really runs through him. One of the best possession teams in the league, Ribero does a great job of finding space to make himself available and then is so good at finding open teammates to keep the ball and spark the attack. And on top of it all, he’s smart with the ball: he makes the right choice on when to keep possession or when to hit the ball forward to try and get behind the defense.

Aiden Steele, Senior – Mansfield

Mansfield graduated one of the biggest senior classes in the league last year (14) so as they integrate a lot of new faces and younger players, head coach Steve Sheridan is going to lean on his three captains, including striker Aiden Steele. Steele is the type of player you don’t want to give any space to — sometimes easier said than done — because he’s shown in the past that he can punish opposing defenses anytime he gets into the attacking third. He does well to find those spaces, whether it’s dropping back a bit to collect the ball, pressuring defenders into a turnover, or finding space in behind the back line. The Hornets will be looking for Steele to set the pace up front after graduating the majority of their goals scored from a season ago.

Alex Vecchioli, Junior – Attleboro

Attleboro looks like a team ready to compete for the division title this season, and one reason for that is that the Bombardiers had a handful of options for this watch list. But the list wouldn’t be complete without the 2021 HockomockSports Underclassman of the Year Alex Vecchioli. After breaking onto the scene during the truncated 2020 season, Vecchioli really put his name on the map with a tremendous season a year ago. Whether he’s dropped back into an attacking center mid role or moved up front to a striker position, he’s an impact player. He’s very confident with the ball at his feet and has no fear taking defenders on 1-on-1. He scored a team-high 10 goals a season ago and registered two assists. He has a strong group of players around him like classmates Luke Hagopian and Billy Badger and formed a great partnership with senior Esvin Morales last year that will be a challenge for defenses again this year.
