Soccer - Varsity vs. Berkshire School
Event Type: Regular
Advantage:Away
Date: November 9, 2011
Result:Loss
Score:2-7
Event Recap:
There were times in today's game when it looked as though we were going to compete successfully against a talented Berkshire team, but in the end, we gave up far too many goals to keep it close, including two penalty kick goals. Berkshire scored first when a hard foul in the box yielded a penalty kick for Berkshire and the shooter made no mistake. Not long thereafter, however, Johan Venema slotted a ball for a streaking Pap Diouf on the left flank. Pap beat a defender and found Javier Ortiz de Zarate alone on the twelve. Javier settled the ball and drove it home, evening the score at one goal apiece and earning one of the prettiest goals of the season. As has been the case in many games, we moved the ball well at times through the midfield but too many unforced turnovers put our backline under pressure repeatedly. As a result, the score at the half was four to one. We came out strong in the second and scored early when Andreas Garcia de Parades found Pap Diouf against a lone defender in the Berkshire backline. Pap beat the defender and put a well struck ball under the goalkeeper to put us within two goals of Berkshire. But defensive problems persisted, and before the affair was done, Berkshire opened up the score to finish with a five goal margin. Elliot Howe played well for us in the central midfield and Javier Ortiz de Zarate was recognized as Man-of-the-Match for Avon. Sam Ravech served his team admirably in goal after a long layoff, filling in for the side-lined Brad Seeber.

One last opportunity on Saturday to knock off an opponent before the end of the season. We are on the road at Wilbraham-Munson for a 2 PM kickoff.
