Marie Philip School played against Boston University Academy on Boston University's hockey field for Friday Night Light. We usually played on BU's historic Nickerson Soccer Field every year, however, due to schedule conflict this year, we played on a different field.

BUA earned a 2-0 lead in the first half, which we knew we could've stopped them from scoring. We missed a few scoring opportunities. During the second half, we had to play through heavy rain and struggled to carry the ball passed BUA defensive zone. (Contributed by Head Coach Jason Cserny)

stmarysSt. Mary's 2 Chesterton Academy 1

The Bisons opened their regular season schedule on the road yesterday kicking off against the NFCAA expansion club from Chesterton Academy. Throughout the course of the week, the coaching staff preached playing smart, playing hard, and playing together for the full 60 minutes. We stressed applying more offensive pressure on our opponents and taking more shots.

From the get go, it appeared that both teams were pretty evenly matched and that both clubs were going to play stingy on their own back end. With just under five minutes to play in the first half of the contest, the Charges were able to capitalize on a minor defensive breakdown and slip a shot past Christian Lawrence to take a 1-0 lead into the break.

During the intermission, the coaching staff continued to praise the players as to how well they were playing and following the game script we had planned out. We told the players that if they put together a similar second half that there was a good chance we could beat our opponent.

After a few adjustments, John Allen, Tyler Mondo-Goodrich, and Kassim Kassim were able to contain the Chargers to just four shots on goal in comparison to our eight shots that we took. Nick Barrus turned two of the eight shots into a game tying and a game winning goal. The Bisons are now 1-0 in the NFCAA. (Contributed by Head Coach Bryan Booke)

rhode-islandMarie Philip 9 Rhode Island 1

Rhode Island School for the Deaf kicked off their varsity soccer season with a game on the road against Marie Philip School on a nice September afternoon. We only had two weeks worth of practice and brought 11 players, so everybody had to play the entire game without any substitutes or rest. Three players got hurt for periods of time through the game, so the remaining players had to cover a lot of ground.

MPS scored first within the first few minutes of the game and remained on the offensive attack for majority of the first half. RISD moved some players around on the field for the second half, which gave us more positive results, including a goal. The coaches are proud of our players for persisting and not giving up through the whole game. We gained a lot of invaluable experience and look forward to improving ourselves for the next game.
