The red-hot Weymouth boys’ soccer team upset No. 7 Framingham, 2-1, at home on Tuesday afternoon behind a pair of goals from senior captain Steve Lanata.
“We’ve won five straight. This isn’t a surprise for us,” Weymouth coach William McEachern said. “We knew it was only a matter of time.”
Framingham (10-2-1) only had one loss going into the game. It looked like the Flyers were going keep it that way when Adrian Dobrolluka scored off a corner kick 10 minutes into the second half for a 1-0 lead. In need of a shift in momentum, McEachern turned to his bench. He put in senior center-fielder Jeff Perez, who quickly made his 6-foot-3-inch presence known.
“We were pressing, we were attacking,” McEachern said. “We had good energy and momentum on our side. Perez had good energy.”
Perez made one of the biggest plays in the game when he won a free kick for his senior goalkeeper Lucas Rezende-Berge. Perez then headed the free kick to Lanata, who was able to tie it in the 70th minute.
Lanata broke the stalemate with a goal in the final two minutes. After the Wildcats (5-4-4) allowed a last-second winner to Framingham the last time they met, they knew they couldn’t get complacent.
The defense, led by Rezende-Berge, who had 10 saves and has only let up one goal during the Wildcats’ winning streak, finished the job.
“You’ve got to give credit to these senior leaders,” McEachern said. “
