Newton U14 Lions wrap up spring season with 1-2 overtime loss in MITOC playoffs

The Newton Lions U13-U14 Bay team (team photos) finished the regular season with a 8-0-2 record to win their six team division last week. This enabled them to compete with other eight other division 2 winners for the chance to represent the 180 or so boston area youth soccer teams in the state-wide Massachusetts Tournament of Champions.

They faced Lexington’s #1 team last night in the first round of the playoffs. The Lexington team was from a higher division and also had a 8-0-2 record. After going down 0-1 they came back with a 1-1 equalizer and the game finished regulation in a 1-1 tie. That put the game into two 10 minute overtime periods. They team played well but Lexington had an explosive striker who scored the go ahead goal for them.
