Feng ’10 and Grober ’09 Lead Ultimate to Win Over Milton

On a windy Wednesday, in 60-degree weather, the Boys Ultimate Team notched a 15-11 victory against a very determined and gritty Milton Academy squad. At the half, the score was 8-7 Andover, with an outstanding 3-point performance by Josh Feng ’10. Handlers Eli Grober ’09 and Duncan Crystal ’10 threw very nice outlet passes allowing Andover to run its opponent into the ground. In the second half, Andover managed to score three straight points to overwhelm the Milton defense with a final score of 15-11. Along with great throws and quick hard cuts, the defense that the Ultimate team practiced all week paid off. With solid zone defense, Brandon Wong ’12 and Turner Shaw ’11 worked hard to force many crucial turnovers that eventually allowed Andover to build its lead. The resilient effort of Rob Stevens ’10, Alec Weiss ’11, Thomas Armstrong ’11 and Lucas Christopherson ’12 was also very much appreciated. In addition to a great defense, Andover showed a very nice flowing offense with hard cuts from all sides and very pretty layouts. “We played very well overall,” said Coach Scott Hoenig after the game. “Our zone defense came together and was very well executed. I feel like this game has been the best that we played all year and the team definitely raised the intensity level up in the second half.” The Ultimate team will look to improve on and practice the timing of cuts and defensive plays in the end zone. The Andover Boys Ultimate team looks forward to the long-awaited NEPSUL Tournament in St. Johnsbury, VT this coming weekend.
