Kent School boys’ varsity soccer team has gotten off to a solid start this fall, with a record of 4-3 as of Wednesday, October 10th. They started the season with two impressive road wins against Salisbury and Canterbury School. Following this, they competed hard at home against Berkshire but fell short, losing 2-1. While it was an unfortunate result for the Lions, Head Coach Tim Booth stated, “we learned something about ourselves” after having faced one of the best programs in New England. They followed the loss with a decisive 2-1 win over Deerfield, followed by two narrow losses.

As for the rest of the season, Coach Booth says that “the larger aspiration is to be in the mix for playoffs,” something that he believes is very possible this year. Going forward, he wishes to “see them play the game properly and beautifully for ninety minutes.” This year’s captains, CJ Brito- Trinidad ’19, Victor Kang ’19, and Mohamed Tall ’19, have so far done a nice job of leading the team in the right direction. Coach Booth remarks that these seniors “need to lead by example, from the practice pitch to match play.”

When asked about this year’s team compared to other years, Coach Booth responded, “it’s the nicest group of kids with high chemistry; they need to use that togetherness.” While the team has faced some struggles, they certainly have the ability to achieve their goals for the season. Going into the homestretch of the season, the team looks to maximize their potential. As six of the last ten games are going to be played here at Kent, the Lions hope to take advantage of their home field.
