Junior Danny Sanchez dribbles past defenders in a win over the Archbishop Wood Vikings

TOWAMENCIN- The boys’ soccer team continued strong with yet another dominating win to stay undefeated.

The Knights (10-0) beat the Archbishop Wood Vikings (5-4-2) 4-0 as both the defense and attack were in full effect at the turf field.

“We were nice and organized in the middle, kept everything out, everything was clear, it went well… [the attack] was great, a lot of offense always takes pressure off the defense,” senior goalie Brett Schwengels said.

The match was fairly balanced until junior Carter Houlihan scored a goal (16’) off senior Chris Caputo’s assist.  After that, there was no way to stop North Penn from finding the back of the net.  Just two minutes and fourteen seconds later, senior Luke McMahon found the back of the net (18’) to put the Knights up 2-0.  Right before the end of the first half, Houlihan passed to junior Ryan Stewart for yet another goal (40’).  The Knights went into the half in the driver’s seat up 3-0.

And it did not take long for the Knights to increase the lead even more after halftime, as Houlihan kicked a hard shot that rebounded off the Vikings’ goalie.  Senior Aidan Jerome got the rebound and poked it into the net (41’) to put the Knights up 4-0.  Coach Duddy then subbed in his bench who maintained the lead by dominating possession time.

“The guys coming in as subs, they’re good players and would start for many teams in high school soccer, they just would, it’s just we have some depth here,” Duddy explained after the game.

The Knights will be back on the turf Monday, at 7:00 against the Souderton Indians.
