Senior Michael Jones garnered all-scholastic recognition from both the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe. He was also named the Boston Globe Division III Player of the Year. He joins 2015 winner Ethan Stavisky and 2016 winner Jack Fletcher. Jones also was named a 2017 MetroWest Daily News All-Star. The All-State nominee is undecided on his college plans.
After a postponement of the first game at Westford Academy, the Warriors have compiled a 2-0-2 (DCL Small 0-0-2) record. Wins were recorded against Snowden 8-0 and Cambridge 2-1. DCL Small tilts are living up to their billings. A highly skilled and organized Waltham squad overcame a 2 goal deficit to tie up the Warriors. Most recently, the Warriors had to fight back from a 1-0 hole to tie Boston Latin.
Next game is on Saturday night at the Kicks for Cancer event at Concord-Carlisle High School. Wayland will face AB in the 7:00PM time slot.
Wayland travels to Manning Field, the site of last year’s devastating loss to Swampscott in the D3 North Semi Finals, today to face the Big Blue at 5:15pm. Swampscott dealt DCL foe Bedford a 1-0 loss on Tuesday to advance to tonight’s game. As the higher seed, Swampscott will be the home team.
The Warriors will have to contend with Swampscott’s three central midfielders who control the game for the Big Blue. #9 Jack Herlihy, #4 Mike Coffey, and #10 Jack Dennehy are the big guns for Swampscott. Coffey netted the winner against Bedford. Together, these players allow Swampscott to play an up tempo game. Wayland will have to limit Swampscott’s ability to use these players to control the flow of play.
With a strong showing on Friday, the Warriors clinched a spot in the 2016 MIAA Division 3 Soccer Tournament. Wayland beat Lincoln-Sudbury 3-1 at home.

Wayland’s victory came against the #3 ranked team in the latest Boston Globe high school boys’ soccer rankings. The Warriors are not ranked.
Wayland’s record stands at 7-2-2 (3-0-1 DCL Small)

The Warriors head into a new season with some changes to the DCL. Both Arlington and Tyngsboro have left the league. This has caused major schedule changes. Wayland opens the season against Division 1 power L-S on September 5th at home. L-S joins AB and Westford Academy as the Division 1 teams that the Warriors will face twice this season.

Despite receiving a lot of attention from opposing teams’ defenses, Trueblood was able to register eight goals in his Senior year campaign. Some highlights of his season include scoring the game winning goal against a then undefeated Concord-Carlisle team inside the final three minutes, scoring a game tying goal against a top-20 ranked Hopkinton team on a 13 game unbeaten streak to ignite a 3-1 comeback win for Wayland, and scoring two goals, including the game winning goal against Waltham on two rocketed volleys into the left side netting within a five minute span.

Fourteen seniors were recognized tonight prior to the Concord-Carlisle game. Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the evening for Warrior fans. C-C scored in the first minute of the game and was able to withstand many attacks by Wayland. With the 3-2 loss, the Warriors watched as the Patriots celebrated another DCL Small Title.
The Warriors secured a 2009 tourney bid with two wins in two days. On Monday, the Warriors travelled to Hopkinton. While Wayland played one of their best games of the year in the 3-1 victory, they lost Senior Captain Andy Bekenstein for the rest of the season when he broke both his tibia and fibula. The boys have rallied around Andy and went on to win 4-0 today against Tyngsborough. The Tigers had sent the Warriors into a tailspin last week with a 1-0 upset victory.
Wayland has two games left for the regular season. Friday night at 6:00, the Warriors host Concord-Carlisle. Bedford will host Wayland to close out the regular season on Tuesday, November 2nd.
Wayland’s record stands at 7-5-4 (3-2-3 DCL Small).
The Warriors played AB today and lost 2-0. The tone of the game was one where the Warriors lacked the intensity to compete. A wonderful outburst of attacking took place for 15 minutes in the second half, but Wayland was unable to break through on several scoring chances.
Next up is DCL Large foe Waltham on Friday at 4:00pm.
A rainy Friday night did not dampen spirits as the Warriors broke open a scoreless tie with three goals in the 12 minutes to defeat Boston Latin 3-0. Ro Perkins (Sr) recorded his first varsity shutout. Goal scorers were Mark Blahnik (So), Captain Seth Harper (Sr), and Senior Captain Michael Trueblood. Nico Pascual-Leone was a play-maker with two assists.
Next up for Wayland is Bedford on Tuesday at home at 4:00pm.
Griffin McGrail scored on a PK in the first half to start the Warrior’s season off on the right foot. However, in the second half, Newton South got the equalizer with ten minutes remaining in the game. Ro Perkins made 12 saves for Wayland.
The home opener is this Friday night at 6:30PM under the lights.
All three levels have selected players for their teams. Coach Porrell has a spirited group of Freshmen. Coach Kissack will look to mold players from the Classes of 2011, 2012, & 2013 into a cohesive unit. While Coach Gavron and Coach Goodhue are intrigued with the possibility of a deep bench on the Varsity team.
Coach Gavron is pleased to introduce Adam Kissack as the new JV Coach. Kissack, originally from England, has recently relocated to the Metrowest area from Madison, Connecticut. Daniel Hand High School Varsity Coach Stanley Latkowski praised Kissack as “technically and tactically sound.” His coaching at the Freshmen level last year was a major upgrade over previous Freshmen coaches. Look forward to a disciplined and skilled club to take the pitch for Coach Kissack.
The Warriors will host new Division I team Masconomet Regional on Monday, October 12, 2009 at 3:00PM on the turf. The Chieftains return to WHS after last year’s 1-0 win on Wayland. Coach Emmons will bring a squad that was Division II state tournament runner-ups a year ago.
Rounding out Wayland’s 18 game regular season will be another non-league tilt with Tri-Valley League opponent Hopkinton. The Warriors will make a trip to take on the on Hillers on October 26, 2009 at 4:00PM
WHS soccer is partnering with Wayland Youth Soccer to participate in a fundraising day for Adrian Gomes, who has served as the first “coach” for so many Wayland athletes. As you may know, his teenage daughter is suffering from cancer and has just recently completed her final round of chemotherapy
On Saturday, April 4, WAYS is “manning” the town dump and will collect money by “canning” for the day.
If you are unable to stop by to donate on Saturday April 4, you may send a donation to Wayland High School with Check Payable to Wayland Soccer. Please write on note line “Gomes Family”. Coach Gavron will forward the money to the Gomes Family.
Warriors’ Boys Soccer plans to get the ball rolling earlier this upcoming season. Coach Gavron announced that he will start tryouts on Thursday, August 27, 2009. He believes that this will be the first date that the MIAA will permit activities to start. Please note that this is a tentative date and has NOT been confirmed with the WHS Athletic Department. An official announcement will be posted as soon as the MIAA posts its Fall Sports Calendar.
The boys had an early test against one of the premier teams in the state today at the stadium. Masconomet opened their season against the Warriors in a tenacious battle. Wayland had a few scoring opportunities, but none better than when Alex Burgun-Tower (BT)headed a free kick past the Masco keeper. That goal would have tied the game. Unfortunately, BT was called offsides. Anil Singhal played another great game in net for the Warriors. He was fought off several point blank shots which kept the Warriors in the game. Sophomore Griffin McGrail continues to show that he deserves quality time for hustle and ball control under pressure. “He has great vision on the field,” noted former Warrior head Bill Snow.
NEXT GAME: Wednesday at Bedford (League Game)
