Coach Isaac Wooten and his North Adams Green Devils varsity boys soccer squad got their season off to a fine beginning on Saturday, Aug. 20 as they hosted the Portsmouth Clay Panthers in a non-conference affair for both teams.
It as a very convincing win according to Coach Wooten where all 23 players on his 2016 squad received significant minutes and contributed to the win.
Leading the way for the Devils was senior Patrick England, who began his final season in  big way , recording a hat trick.  North Adams also got goals from sophomores Ethan Campbell and Austin Lloyd, junior Tray Brand, and senior Zeke Acosta.  Every goal by the Devils came with an assist, three of those from senior Ben Figgins, three from senior Kain Turner, and another from sophomore Dunkin Hesler.
“We continue to move the ball and share it well,” said Coach Wooten.  “We had a great season last year but at times we were a one-trick pony and that caught up with us during district play, but I believe that now we can be even better than last year.  We work so much better together and we are strong at every position and don’t fall off at all when we go to the bench.”
The Green Devils open up Southern Hills Athletic Conference play on Wednesday, Aug. 24 when they host a tough squad of Eastern Brown Warriors.  Game time is 4:30 p.m.
