Celebrating Wellesley United Soccer Club
Our 8th grade Girls Warriors team led by Jonathan Martin, Carl Tucker and Meredith Lepper made the final of the Presidents cup to face Northboro Breakers. The girls played in a hard fought game which went right down to the wire with both teams playing some excellent soccer. Wellesley got the win from a great team move that started from the defenders winning the ball back and playing through the thirds with Abigail Tucker finishing off. Huge congratulations to the players, coaches and everyone associated with the team.
Also in Presidents cup action was our 5th grade girls Bolts team, they faced league stable mates Natick in the final held at Medfield. The game was one too many for the team as they lost out 3-0, congratulations to coach Tory and the girls for a very successful season.
Our 6th grade Boys Revolution side had a fantastic season, winning their league comfortably and reaching the finals of MTOC. The boys, coached by Will Corkhill and Steve Keresztes made their way to Lancaster to compete against the best teams from Massachusetts. Again they comfortably won their group winning every game and scoring 11 whilst only conceeding 2. They returned on Sunday to play AJAC from the Pioneer League, winning the game 4-1, Up next, the final against Framingham. The boys played a fantastic game winning 3-1 with 2 goals from Jack Kampe and a single from Jasper Gander. Well done to the Boys and Coaches!

They played the final against a club team from Connecticut winning the game 2-0 with goals from Sawyer Temple and Austin Del Col.
Our successful Wellesley Premier League program continued at the North Kingstown Soccer Tournament in Rhode Island. Three 5th grade teams (2 girls, 1 boys) travelled down for the weekend in blazing hot conditions for the 2 day tournament. Our boys team won their group with 2 wins and a draw before playing in the final against a very strong club side from Rhode Island made up of 6th graders. The final went against them 2-5 with goals from Alex Perkin and Stephen Keresztes but the boys played some great soccer, particularly the 3rd grade players that helped out against players twice their size!
The two girls teams had mixed results. The red team playing in a very competitive group against older club sides, had a record of 1 win and 2 losses.
