Mansfield boys’ soccer cruises against King Philip

In a Hockomock League clash between the conference’s leader and defending champion, senior Cullin Anastasia scored a pair of second-half goals to lead the No. 15 Mansfield boys’ soccer team to a 3-1 victory over host King Philip in Wrentham on Thursday afternoon.

Senior Jackson Murphy gave Mansfield (7-0) a 1-0 lead before the half. KP (3-5-0) knotted the game after the break, 1-1, but Anastasia converted a penalty kick 22 minutes into the second half to give Mansfield a 2-1 lead. Anastasia nailed down the win with an insurance goal nine minutes later.

Mansfield coach Steve Sheridan said the Hornets made it a priority to contain King Philip’s Tyler Mann, the Hockomock League’s reigning MVP.


Sheridan credited the defensive work of juniors Derek Meuth, Sam Nugent, and Matt O’Donnell, and seniors Harry Braidt and Nick Hyland, a captain who helped control the midfield along with Sean Lanzillo.

The Hornets continued their tenacious defensive play, allowing just seven goals in seven games.

Sheridan said it was important to defeat the defending league champion on its home field to solidify Mansfield’s place in the league standings, but there remained a sense of urgency for the Hornets going forward.

“We’re still going to keep taking it one game at a time,” he said.
