The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School boys varsity team came out swinging against Bishop Feehan High School, and did not stop until the final whistle. Led by star Jason Lages, who notched five goals, the Vineyarders defeated Bishop Feehan 8-0.
Within the first four minutes, Jason Lages put one in the back of the net off an assist from Yannick Gonsalves. With quick passing, decisive movements, and the ability to push forward, Martha’s Vineyard dominated, and led 4-0 at the half. Brandon Dwane had a goal and two assists, and Nevin Wallis had one goal and one assist, all before halftime.
A composed Vineyard team emerged from halftime with the same spark, scoring a goal four minutes from restart. Jason Lages scored his third goal at the 50th minute, using fancy football to dribble past the Bishop Feehan keeper and slot it home. Gordon Moore added another to round off the decisive victory, bringing the Vineyarders to 3-1-1 overall and 1-0 in conference play. Keeper Joao Gonsalves earned his first clean sheet of the year.
The boys’ next match is at Somerset Berkley Regional High School on Thursday at 4 pm.
