Park Tudor Middle School Soccer completed the league and cup double Thursday night with a 2-0 victory over Traders Point in the IISL tournament championship match on the varsity field. The combined boys and girls team got to celebrate lifting both trophies following a very closely fought win and a season of hard win.
Marcus Kennedy scored both goals for the Panthers, finding the net in each half, both times on assists by Peter Dubie. Becky Williams, Owen Camferdam and Ahmed Athar combined to record a shutout in goal, while the defensive line combination of Zoë Paugh, Myles Nehrling, Alex Parrish, Will Morris and Harvey Lambert were once again air tight in the back.
Mr. Bogan set a policy that PTMS would field a true co-ed team through the tournament, and Coaches Cooper and Ziegler followed through, keeping the gender breakdown at 5 and 6 or 6 and 5 for every minute of the three matches. None of the Panthers’ opponents played more than two young ladies at a time. The team’s overall defensive effort was stellar, surrendering just one goal in three matches.
It was a total team effort, with every player on the roster getting into the action. Following are the members of the victorious team.
