After playing back-to-back days, everyone had to play a role in the game, including Cameron Lee, our backup keeper. We also had to deal with injuries and illnesses throughout the season.

Just before the end of regulation, Conant was awarded a penalty which Boissy was able to save to preserve the status quo and send the game into extra time. Five minutes into the added stanzas, a failed defensive clearance gave Conant a run for the game winner. – Scott Zipke of Hopkinton
