Woodstock hadn’t played a match in eight days, but you wouldn’t have known by the Blue Streaks' play.
Woodstock controlled the tempo from the start and kept the ball in the Harvard end most of the first half.
“It really helped us having a break,” Woodstock coach Matt Warmbier said. “We were able to get healthy and refocused for what was basically a conference championship game.”
It also helped Woodstock to get the first goal. Joey Tolentino (pictured above) scored his third goal of the season on a perfect shot from the side of the goal just 14 minutes into the match.
“The ball came in from the corner and I ran to it and was able to put it in,” Tolentino said. “They have been a really tough opponent since I’ve been in high school so it was important to get the early lead.”
The Blue Streaks continued their impressive early play and made the score 2-0 just under eight minutes later. Caleb Warmbier drilled one past the Harvard for what turned out to be the game winner.
“I got a good flick off my chest and was able to finish it,” Caleb Warmbier said. “This season has been mind boggling. We’ve had a lot of injuries but everyone just keeps stepping up and we aren’t done yet.”
