With six yards between Clark Perkins ’14 and the rebounded ball and a Loomis striker coming full speed ahead, Perkins’ athletic prowess kicked into play as he dove out to the dangerously placed ball, taking the scoring chance and the opposing player down with him. Four games into the season, Andover Boys Soccer remains undefeated following a 0-0 tie against Loomis Chaffee last Saturday and a 4-1 win over Holderness this Wednesday. In his first start for Boys Soccer, Perkins anchored the...
