Our Match Report
North Shore kicked off the Spring '22 season hosting the Boston Maccabis at Salem High School. Heading into the match short on numbers and with people playing out of position the Red's faced a tough challenge. Alas, the Spring season is about getting time on the field, trying new combinations, and in this season's case implementing some new tactical changes Coach Nick Frye has introduced. Based on those metrics the day was a success, unfortunately on the scoreboard North Shore came up short, losing 32-22. We were however to successfully implement our new "Pirate" ball, which opened up plenty of space for our backs to score. We also saw guys like Kevin Duffy, Josh Libelo, Eric Poalino make their first appearance for the club, all welcome additions to the forward pack. Also coming out to help with bench cover were Issac and D2 standout Hank the Tank. Special shoutout to sponsorship chair Mark Kivimaki who spearheaded the creation of signs from Wilson St in Salem to the field to promote the team (and provide direction), those signs spurred Mac, a recent graduate of UMaine Farmington to stop his Saturday errands, come down to the pitch and find a pair of boots to get a run in with the club, hope to see him out this week at practice and get him into the fold.
All in all, a successful start to the Spring season. We are gaining numbers, though more are always welcome and will be pushing forward this week as we prepare for a match up @ Worcester this weekend.
