The Forman School Boys’ Varsity Soccer team is having an impressive season, and it just got better. With a 12-3 record, the Lions are roaring in the postseason. The team is in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) tournament for the first time since 2005, and is now advancing to the semifinals.
As the #4 seed, Forman faced off against #5 Lexington Christian Academy and with the entire community cheering on, the Lions achieved a 4-0 victory. Liam Lawlor ’17 led the way with two goals including a miraculous bicycle kick assisted by Zachary Bugbee ’20 on a beautiful cross. Bugbee and Ayanda Mablandla ’18 each chipped in a goal of their own, with assists from JT Papa ’17 and Lawlor.
“They’ve worked hard and really matured. They played well yesterday,” Varsity Soccer Coach and Athletic Director Scott McCarty ’76 said. Forman hasn’t been a part of this tournament since 2005 and McCarty calls this team’s success “a great accomplishment.”
Forman travels to take on #1 seed St. Andrew’s at 1:00pm on Saturday in the Class D New England Semifinal.
