School roundup: No. 1 Somerville boys’ soccer team loses

The top-ranked Somerville boys’ soccer team suffered its first loss of the season, falling at home to unranked Boston Latin, 1-0, on Friday.

Junior forward Billy Hart scored for the Wolfpack (3-6-3) off Cole Rainey-Slavick’s assist in the 68th minute.

Sophomore center-midfielder Griffin Burns dribbled toward the goal and lofted a pass to the right corner, where Rainey-Slavick placed a cross on the ground to Hart at the 6-yard line. Hart deposited the ball into the lower right corner of the net.

“Hart is not the fastest or the flashiest player, but he’s technical and was perfect in that situation,” said Boston Latin coach Jason Miller.

Junior goalkeeper Pearse Martin made eight saves for the Wolfpack.

“In all my four years of coaching here, that was the best performace I’ve seen of our goalkeeper,” Miller said. “He was the man of the match. It was a brilliant effort.”

The Wolfpack’s leading scorer, senior Owen Ward (five goals) did not play in the game, so Miller knew hanging onto the lead would be a challenge.

“The last 10 minutes of the game was like defending the Alamo,” said Miller.

The Highlanders (11-1-1) were last year’s Division 1 North champion.
