The boys got off to a slow start as they were working against the tide and at one point their dagger board scraped the bottom as they went into the half down 28-14.

The boys came out in the 2nd half with a purpose as they made a tac and caught some nice wind to blow by MacDuffie, making them walk the plank, and the Owls raised the victory flag, winning 60-57. McLean was the last to jump ship as he threw up a last second 3-pointer that caught the backboard and rimmed out.

The boys docked up in Waltham, MA for the night as head chef Marcel Pettway prepared pizza in the galley for dinner. The boys then had an 11:30 game vs Beaver Country Day School, a big school with lots of crew members. The Owls once again put the full court press on and went up 20-0. They sent BCD to the bilge pumps as they were sinking fast. "BCD fought us hard," said helmsman Coach Ryan. "They just had way too much water to bail and they finally sank to the bottom. The boys had a great weekend as we drafted home, singing all the way back to the "Sac."

Five players reached double figures in the final game. Sert - 15; Akcam - 11; Hyon - 10; Pettway - 12; Riley - 21. All tournament team.

Boys Varsity Soccer 4-3 overtime loss in New England Prep School quarter finals - ends season

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 00:00:00 EST

The boys varsity soccer team advanced to the quarter finals in the prep school Class D's where they meet up with St. Andrew's School from Rhode Island.

The game would be played at Loomis Chaffee School in Conn. on a brisk Saturday afternoon. St. Andrew's took a 1-0 lead into the half, just as they did earlier in the year when the two teams met on Parents Weekend at Hoosac. Hoosac ended up winning that contest 3-1 so they knew they were capable of coming from behind.

St. Andrew's made it a 2-0 game on a penalty kick that Jordan Elwood saved, but the rebound was collected and put in. "Elwood was outstanding all day," Coach Branko would say after the game.

The Owls then would catch the break that they needed to get fired up as Pero popped a ball up from about 40 yards out and it bounced over the goalie and went in for Hoosac's first goal. Minutes later it was Atakan Akcam who buried one with his right foot to knot it up at 2-2. Just about 25 minutes into play, Petar Djurdjevic put Hoosac ahead 3-2 with his left foot. St. Andrew's then answered with their third goal of the game to tie it up. Overtime would come and with about 1:30 left in the first five-minute overtime, St. Andrew's would score off a nice feed from the left side. One touch and the game was over.

The Owls finished their regular season undefeated, and overall went (14-1-1) - outscoring their opponent by a wide margin. It was a nice season. We had a lot of success, and we enjoyed watching the them play. Great job boys! Go Hoosac!

Fall Season Winding Down

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 00:00:00 EST

October 24, 2014

   The interscholastic teams are all finishing strong as they enter into November, and look to post-season play.

   The boys varsity soccer team loaded with star recruits is on its way to another great season with a glowing 9-0-1 record to date, beating all comers.   With four games remaining on their regular season record, the Owls look to finish strong and capture a post-season bid to the New England Prep School Tournament on November 12.

   The girls and boys J.V. teams have found it hard to get wins, but that has not stopped them from enjoying playing together as a team.  Both teams have made great strides and have shown marked improvement throughout the season.  The girls have three games left on their schedule, and the J.V. boys team have three as well.

   The cross country team has been one of the strongest teams we have had in years with our runners finishing in the top three in every meet.  The team is preparing for the end of the season championship meet at Wooster School on November 5.

   Girls volleyball has also shown a lot of improvement, and although they haven't won to date, they have proved that they can hang in there with varsity teams.

   The fitness and boomer soccer groups have been steady and solid all season.

   All in all we have had a great fall with the outdoor activities.  The weather has been great, and the teams have all bonded nicely.

   Finish strong Hoosac!  We are family! No students stand idle.
