The Medfield High School boys varsity soccer team continued its recent trend of success on the road, as the Warriors (5-3, 5-2) improved to 4-1 away from Fisher Field with a convincing 5-0 victory at Westwood on Thursday afternoon.
Despite the lopsided final score, the game actually remained scoreless at the half as stellar goaltending on the part of Jonathan David, as well as both teams attempting to feel one another out with conservative play, brought about a lack of offense throughout the first 40 minutes.
After the halftime break, however, it was all Medfield. Owen Previte got the scoring started for the Warriors less than a minute into the second half, thanks to a long stretch pass from Jack McCordic. Previte dashed in and deposited the ball home inside the far left post to give Medfield the 1-0 lead. Less than two minutes later, Nathan Parry fired home a beauty of a shot up high from about 20 yards out after a cross from Joe Layden to double Medfield’s lead to 2-0.
The Warriors continued to press and keep the Wolverines on their heels in the defensive end.
Just moments later, it was Previte who delivered the third blow with a goal off of a free kick to make it a 3-0 lead.
The Warriors were far from done, as Jake Sherman headed home a goal off of a corner kick to make it a 4-0 game and Mike Vachon added a fifth to put the nail in the coffin. The Warriors prevailed with the convincing 5-0 victory.
Medfield will look to continue their road success when the Warriors travel to face Norton on October 4.
