The Middle School soccer game this past Tuesday was a hard fought match against Wakefield School. The boys all got playing time and did well on the pitch. 

The Yellow Jackets had a fast start and scored 21 seconds into the game. Sidique Thomas-Sualley ’21 made a quality pass to Joseph Flowers ‘21. Flowers beat one defender, then passed the ball to JJ Banek-Gabelle ‘21 for the right footed blast past the Wakefield goalkeeper.

R-MA played a tough away game against Fredericksburg Academy (FA) this past Tuesday.  The players took the game to the home team from the first whistle and could have scored a hat full of goals after early domination. 

FA slowly started to get into the game at the halfway point of the first half and scored two goals in quick succession from set pieces. Another goal was added shortly before half time that gave FA a flattering 3-0 score line.
