Towering header from Morgan Davis ensures a win for Andover against NMH
Four players got their name on the starting lineup for the first time this season and didn't disappoint as the team continued their quest for an undefeated season. Morgan Davis started up front for the first time this season and nine minutes into the match put Andover ahead 1-0 with a towering header beating the NMH Keeper to the ball. The delivery matched the finish as Jerry Shu put in a glorious cross from the left side of the pitch right on Morgan's head. In the twenty fourth minute, Jay Aziabor doubled the lead with a tap in. This time the ball came in from the right side of the pitch with Xavier Smith smashing in a low cross in front of goal past the outstretched keeper into the path of Jay to tap it in. Nine minutes before the half finished NMH found a goal from a shot outside the box. Andover GK Phineas Walsh was unlucky to not keep a clean sheet as he got his fingertips on the ball but could not push it over the cross bar.
The second half was a battle as NMH kept sending players forward looking for the equalizer, but Big Blue stood strong for the victory. Next up is Deerfield at home on Sunday October 28th then ending the season with an away match against Belmont Hill (drew 0-0 on 10.17.18) on November 3rd.
