One Monday, September 20th the boys took on Whitman Hanson High School, putting forth a dominant 7-0 performance. Jack Murtaugh opened the scoring, followed by back-to-back goals from Cole Sampson, the first assisted by Captain Brian Odell and the other from Will O’Connor. Coming out of halftime with a 3-0 lead, the Harbormen cruised the rest of way. Aidan Brazel’s scored early in the second half. Brazel’s strike was followed by the first varsity goals from Junior Michael Renna, as well as Seniors Luke St. Pierre and Sam Marwill.
Wednesday, September 22nd versus Plymouth South High School saw more of the same from the high-powered Harbormen attack. Cole Sampson started the scoring early with a goal in the 9th minute with a crossing feed from Aidan Brazel. Roles were reversed minutes later when Sampson fed Brazel for a 2-0 lead. Senior Brian Dalimonte followed with a blast and the rout was on. The game featured first-time varsity goal scorers from Seniors Connor Hartman, Avery Warshaw, and Miguel Villacieros. Thomas Healey added a goal as he continues with his impressive senior season. Sampson’s torrid early season scoring also continued as he finished with a hat trick.
A busy week for the Harbormen concluded on Friday afternoon with a visit from Patriot League rival, Duxbury High School. The injury depleted and spirited Dragons gave Hingham a stern test, yet the result was same as those earlier in the week – a shutout victory on home turf ending with a 2-0 Harbormen win. Chris Bradley notched the only goal of the first half on a nice feed from Aidan Brazel. Brazel was clearly in a sharing mood, as he assisted on a scoring strike from Thomas Healey nine minutes into the second half.
As impressive as the Hingham scoring has been, the defense has been equally strong. Captains Curtis Murphy, a four year starter, and Tetor Ngheim, a three year starter and 2020 All Patriot League performer, have led an experienced defense that has limited shots for the opposition consistently all season in front of goal keeper Jack Price who has record five shutouts thus far.
The Harbormen look to continue their success and are back in action this week with away games against a strong Quincy High School team and undefeated Plymouth North High School.
