2013 SALEM NEWS TEAM BY TEAM BOYS SOCCER PREVIEWS

(Continued)

Bishop Fenwick

Last year’s record: 6-9-4 (Lost in Div. 3 preliminary round)

Head coach: Nick Padovani (2nd season)

Captains: Greg Enos, Sr., M; Iftimi Arapi, Sr., F; Rishad DeSilva, Sr., F; Alex Baker, Sr., D; Tyler Fouhey, Sr., M.

Other players to watch: Jimmy Brophy, Jr., F; Ryan Trott, Sr., GK.

Coach’s outlook: “We’re much more mature and more developed than we were last year at this time. The boys trained hard all summer. I don’t know how many games we’ll win, but the boys understand the system and are strong collectively. We have a lot of depth and I’m just really proud of the guys.”

Beverly

Last year’s record: 11-5-3 (Lost in Div. 2 first round)

Head coach: Kevin Leahy (11th season)

Captains: Graham Doherty, Sr., M; Jack Atherton, Sr., D; Bryon Gerard, Sr., D.

Other players to watch: Ryan Santo, Sr., M; Justin Carnavale, Jr., GK; George Hillios, Sr., F; Sean Curtin, Sr., M.

Coach’s outlook: “We have some kids back, but we lost two Eastern Mass. all-stars in Conor Leahy and Cam Rogers. It’s going to be tough replacing guys like that. I think we’ll be strong defensively and just need to find some players to score the goals.”

Ipswich

Last year’s record: 9-7-4 (Lost in Division 3 quarterfinals)

Head coach: Jon Keefe (3rd season)

Captains: Matthew Jaeger, Sr., F; David Dick, Sr., M.

Other players to watch: Sean Whooley, Sr., D; Sam Benford, Jr., F; Zack Eliopolous, Jr., M.

Coach’s outlook: “We’re pretty thin on numbers, but we have a good group of kids. We have a couple of kids that graduated last year and they made a huge impact, so we’re trying to fill those roles.”

N.S. Tech/Essex Aggie

Last year’s record: 7-8-4 (Lost in Div. 3 preliminary round)
