The Northfield/Williamstown Boys defeated the Lancers 1-0 on a Colby Gingras goal in the second half.The Boys of NWA (Northfield/Williamstown Athletic) picked up a hard fought win over Lamoille last Thursday afternoon, on Garvey Field and improved their record to 5-4-1.

   Going into the game the NWA Boys were confident that they would pick up a win- an easy win. Perhaps they were too confident, They thought they would walk all over Lamoille.. Apparently the Lancers never got the memo.

   “We took them lightly despite a history of tight matches with them. The 1st half was a lot of kickball with very few passes being connected. We improved in the 2nd half with Colby Gingras scoring midway through the half.

   “Chippy play resulted in their keeper and Nick Medow being sent off with under 2 minutes remaining. We go to 5-4-1 while Lamoille drops to 1-9-0, Said assistant coach John Triano.

   NWA head coach (a glass half full kind of guy) found a silver lining. (Sorry about the mixed metaphors but in a small paper you can get away with it!)

   “It was one of those games where we did a lot of good things. Gonzalo Negrero (Northfield Exchange Student) had two grade A chances but the ball just didn’t go in,” coach Amell said.

   The Boys of NWA get to play under the lights later this week. The Boys will play in the second game of a doubleheader on Sabine Field, on the campus of Norwich University. The Girls of Exit 5 will kick off the nighttime twin bill at 6 P.M. The Boys will start shortly after the conclusion of that game. Both games will be “senior Night” games with the seniors and their families being recognized for their efforts throughout their high school soccer careers.
