Saturday boys soccer
NORTHFIELD -- The 2-0 loss might have been the same result as the previous weekend, but the way the Drury boys' soccer team played against Pioneer on Saturday has coach Greg Caproni excited for tonight's matchup with Hoosac Valley.
"We played the way I wanted my boys to play," he said. "Hard-nosed soccer. We were firing on all cylinders."
Drury came as close to scoring without actually doing so after Stephin Wallace moved from his defensive midfield position to forward. He drilled the bottom of the cross bar with a shot, and the ball richocheted straight down, but did not cross the line.
Pioneer then scored a pair of second-half goals to take the win.
