Oldest rivalry in prep school sports. Take that, Exeter.

It’s not enough that Andover soccer  just flat out dominated rival Exeter 9-0, but they are making it good off the field too. Thanks for Twines & Vines fan James McLeod for the submission. Keep ’em coming and good luck to PA in the NEPSAC tournament.

Celebrate Spring with Sammy Adams

[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWpU5yr5EiE]

I haven’t posted any music in a while, but came across this new video by Sammy Adams and thought it be a good share. Sammy Adams graduated the Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill, MA a few years back and then went on to play soccer at Trinity College in CT. Sounds a lot like the path of most Boston area prep school grads. Below is my favorite Sam Adams video. It’s also the first day of Spring and most preps are taking a break from the classroom on the beaches further south, so I felt it was appropriate.

What an IDIOT!

Yahoo – Ezequiel Schelotto is a 22-year-old Argentine-born winger for Atalanta. Mariana Diarco is a model, also from Argentina, whose Google Images results reveal her severe clothing allergy. While this may sound like a perfect/cliche love match, Ezequiel’s parents seem to have brought an end to the relationship for the very reason many of you have already stopped reading this post in search of those aforementioned Google Images results. Ezequiel Schelotto has ended his relationship with Mariana Diarco after his parents allegedly defined her as ‘too sexy’. The Atalanta player and the Argentine model had been together since December, but the couple have reportedly split.

I saw this on Barstool last week, and I wanted to post this response. Ignore the part about him getting married.

Just so you know, here’s a photo of Schelotto and a photo of his sexy ex-girlfriend. It was really hard to find a photo of her that was NOT NSFW. If you Google “Mariana Diarco” you’ll see what I mean.

If you ask me, he should thank his lucky stars that she even spoke to him, never mind dropping her because she was too sexy.

Two Nobles athletes making the news

Noble & Greenough junior forward Chris Calnan has committed to play hockey for Jerry York and the Boston College Eagles starting in 2013. Calnan will join a strong Boston College team that has dominated Hockey East in the past decade, as rival Boston University has slipped.

Oliver White of Noble & Greenough School was selected as the 2011-12 Gatorade Massachusetts Boys Soccer Player of the Year. White is the second Gatorade Massachusetts Boys Soccer Player of the Year to be chosen from Noble & Greenough School.

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound senior forward scored 15 goals and passed for six assists this past season, leading the Bulldogs (13-3-1) to the New England Prep School Athletic Council Class A tournament quarterfinals. White is a two-time Independent School League Offensive Player of the Year. He concluded his prep soccer career with 41 goals and 16 assists.

White will be taking his soccer skills on the road to Harvard next fall.

Suffield Academy soccer beats Deerfield Academy for first time since 2005

From Boston.com/September 21, 2011 07:58 PM

By Erika Carle, Globe Correspondent

Suffield beat Deerfield, 2-1, in boys’ soccer today, its first win against Deerfield since 2005.

Junior Jordan Glassman scored both of the goals for Suffield, and has five goals in only two games. He played left back, center back, and striker today.

“Jordan is the type of player that a coach wants on his team,” said Ricky Warren.

Glassman, a New England All Star, has played for the varsity since his freshman year. He is also part of Soccer Plus at the club level in Connecticut, and the Olympic Development Program.

Jamie Johnson and Patrick O’Brien assisted on Glassman’s goals.

Jessie Phillips, who came in during the second half, had two big saves for Suffield as Deerfield put on the pressure.

There is not a lot of good soccer video on YouTube, otherwise I would have featured Jordan Glassman instead of a photo of Suffield. Get with  it soccer people!

Ethan Willings-Lake Highland Prep

This outstanding goalkeeper from Lake Highland Prep in Orlando, Florida is headed to the US Naval Academy.

A vocal leader with a commanding presence in goal, Ethan is in superb physical shape and has demonstrated goal keeping expertise – including best-practice habits, a strong physical and athletic aptitude with quick reactionary ability.  A coachable team player, Willings is self-assured and communicates well with defenders and teammates, is comfortable with the ball at his feet, and understands the role the keeper plays in redistributing the ball.
