Boys’ Soccer prepares to keep momentum going into playoffs

Emily Schackart
The boys’ soccer team line sup before one of their games. The team will need to bring a similar game plan against Memorial that made them successful last week against them.

Just a few weeks ago, the boys soccer team was on the verge of being out of the postseason picture. They had lost four straight games, and needed a jumpstart.

They got exactly what they needed.

After winning three out of their last four games, the boys’ soccer team finished with a record of 8-7-1, putting them in a three way tie with Manchester Memorial and Nashua South. Once the tie breakers were settled, Londonderry finished on top of the three teams in the eighth spot and will face Manchester Memorial in the DI preliminaries.

“We’re coming into the postseason with some momentum,” senior Cam Wheeler said. “We have been playing well the last few games and want to continue with that.”

The Lancers already faced Memorial in the regular season, just one week ago, where they defeated the Crusaders 3-2 in a double overtime thriller. It was a key victory, as it gave the Lancers home field advantage in their first playoff game.

“We need to bring the same intensity this time around,” Wheeler said. “Memorial is a solid team, but I know we have the ability to beat them again.”

The teams square off today, Wednesday, October 26, at 3:00 here at home at the plateau field. The winner will face the number one seed Bedford in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
