The Warriors defeated Westford Academy, 1-0, in overtime following a disputed penalty kick that was converted by captain Forest Sisk.
In the end, the 2011 Westford Academy boys soccer season hinged on a single kick, and depending on whether you rooting for Westford or Lincoln-Sudbury, it’s questionable as to whether that kick should have occurred at all. Just a few weeks after the Grey Ghosts nearly upset an undefeated Lincoln-Sudbury football team before falling to defeat, the Grey Ghosts boys soccer team almost took the Warriors to the brink, but fell 1-0 on a penalty kick in the first half of overtime. Despite the Warriors’ pedigree, second only to Brighton, in the MIAA 2011 Division 1 North bracket, Westford went toe to toe with the favorites throughout the afternoon. The Ghosts had their chances at various moments peppered through the game, but what kept the contest…

The Warriors shut out the Wildcats, 5-0.
The Lincoln-Sudbury boys soccer team is ending September with an impressive effort. Ryan Bassinger tallied two goals for the visiting Warriors on Wednesday in a 5-0 victory over host Weston. Weston (2-6) managed to contain L-S (5-0-1) in the first half with the Warriors netting only a lone goal. That arrived when Forest Sisk hit a strike near the penalty area at the 27-minute mark. But the Warriors would garner a second tally just seven minutes into the second half as Sisk booted a free kick towards net. Wildcat keeper Michael Gannon blocked the shot, but was unable to secure the ball, allowing Ryan Bassinger to bury the rebound. “We’ve been playing a lot. We’ve had a lot of injuries,” said Weston coach Tom McEnery “But that just making …

Kafina, Driscoll spark the Warriors in 4-0 win over Boston Latin.
Having had a two-goal lead erased last year against Boston Latin, Lincoln-Sudbury boys soccer coach Dave Hosford was a little apprehensive heading into Tuesday’s game. His players soon sent him some placating vibes, burying the Dual County League-foe Wolfback, 4-0, Tuesday afternoon at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School. “Latin is a team if you give them time and give them confidence, they can come back,” said Hosford. “I was proud of the guys. Players one through 23 were intense. They also, I felt, trusted each other in terms of both playing defense and also passing the ball. I thought we moved the ball around nicely today. “ The Warriors (3-0-1) were aided in their cause by Chris Kafina and Andres Driscoll, who both netted a pair of …

Lincoln-Sudbury's Kafina, Barnes notch goals in season-opening win.
Senior Chris Kafina and sophomore Tyler Barnes both scored goals as the Lincoln-Sudbury boys soccer team edged cross-town host Wayland, 2-1, in sloppy conditions Wednesday afternoon. Kafina tallied the game-winner in the 73rd minute off Andres Driscoll's pass. Driscoll had two assists in the game for the Warriors. Senior goalkeeper Tyler McCarthy registered nine saves to record his first varsity victory. Senior co-captain Matt Birtwell played a gutsy game, especially in the second half and Malcolm Joseph, our center back, was also very good. Senior co-captain Jacob Weltman also had an excellent game in the midfield.

Lincoln-Sudbury misses three penalty kicks, allowing Brookline to advance to the secional semifinals.
There were players on the sideline with cramped muscles while others were simply gasping for air, trying to dig for one last ounce of energy. After 40 minutes of regulation and two overtime periods Wednesday afternoon, it was obvious that host Lincoln-Sudbury and the Brookline boys soccer teams had given everything they had in their Division 1 North Sectional quarterfinal match. But when L-S junior midfielder Chris Kafina's penalty kick, the team's fourth against Brookline's Matt Hillman in the penalty kick round, sailed over the net giving Brookline the win, every player on the Brookline bench, with their blond-dyed mohawks, found the strength to sprint on to the field to celebrate in a massive pig pile inside the 18-yard box. "So much …
