The efforts and tenacity of the MRA Upper School soccer team have finally paid off in the win column, after defeating RSEC Academy in Merrimack yesterday by a score of 4-1. A balanced attack, improved positioning, and some superb passing displays led to a solid victory. Three different forwards scored, our defense rose to the occasion when tested, and our goalie made some very timely saves.
With such a young team, the inexperience certainly hindered our play over the first 2 games. But now, we can sense that the younger players are gaining some much needed confidence. The elders are persistently encouraging the newbies, which is always a beautiful sight to see. As we strive to glorify God through athletics, we ask for your prayers in developing a strong moral character, and a steadfast will.
We travel to Parker Academy in Concord to round out our early 3-game road trip on next Tuesday, and will have another shot at Tri-City when we host them next Thursday.
