Andover falls to NMH
At NMH on November 16, 2016 at 2:00 PM
With a penalty kick in the last minutes of the second overtime Northfield Mount Hermon defeated Andover 1-0 in the quarterfinals of the New England tournament.
While the Big Blue enjoyed quality possession throughout the game, PA generated only a few chances with a shot off the bar in the first half and the NMH goalkeeper coming up with some quality saves when needed. With the second overtime drawing to an end, NMH was on the right end of a hand ball call and they converted the resulting penalty to win the game. It was a very close game between two determined, organized teams and NMH put in a great effort. Andover should be proud of a strong team performance from their team. The group showed determination, intelligence and character to the last minute.
