Saturday’s Homecoming games began at 9:00AM as the Auburn boys junior varsity soccer team faced Tantasqua Regional. With several player injuries, the Rockets played without substitute players or a regular goalie.

The Rockets defense held off the attacking Warriors until the 29th minute of the first half when Spencer Curbelo scored for Tantasqua. Nick Pechie would find the net 3 minutes later for the guest team. The half closed with the Rockets down 2-0.

The halftime rest and a couple of goalie changes gave Auburn renewed energy. Although they could not make much headway offensively, the defense was again decent. With 11:33 left in the second, Devon Huard scored for the Warriors, and at 9:01, Zack O’Brien put in Tantasqua’s last goal.
