Under immense defensive pressure, Jonathan Xue ’17 broke through the Brunswick wall with a rocket into the top corner of the goal for his first score for Andover Boys Water Polo on Saturday.  Xue’s performance, in addition to the play of Dylan Norris ’16 and Jake Taylor ’16, both of whom are new members on the team, provided a bright spot in what ended up being two disappointing performances against Brunswick and Deerfield, two of the top teams in the league. Andover lost 17-4 and 10-3...

Just before halftime, Matt Whalen ’16 jumped a route and brought down an interception to give Andover Football a chance to swing the momentum in its favor during its game against Loomis Chaffee last Saturday. After Whalen’s interception, Andover’s offense stalled out and was unable to capitalize on the opportunity, a common theme throughout the game. Despite six offensive turnovers, Andover still had an opportunity to steal a victory from Loomis late in the second half, but the offense...

With the deciding goal from last week’s game under her name, Eliza Quigley ’15 came onto the field hot once again with an early opening goal against Loomis Chaffee on Saturday. Andover Field Hockey went on to score three more goals for a decisive 4-2 victory over Loomis and an unscathed 3-0 record. “Because we scored right away, our momentum shot way up and their confidence went way down, so we kind of fed off of that and it helped us play,” said Nikoletta Toffoloni ’15. Kelly McCarthy ’...
