Wayland will face Medway on Tuesday night at 5:00pm in Westwood. The Warriors earned a trip to Westwood with a win over Marblehead yesterday in the Division 3 North Championship at Manning Field. Charlie Halliwell scored the game winner early in the first half. Goals were also scored by Michael Jones and Marco Melero. Keeper Curran Murphy had his second shutout in as many games.
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.
