CARVER — The Carver boys’ soccer team faced one of its stiffest tests on Tuesday with a visit by Bishop Feehan.
Coach Mark Alessandri asked his team to play as a unit, and his dynamic duo of Mike Sawicki and Dominic Craig followed through. The pair of juniors each scored — along with assisting on the other’s goal — in a 2-1 nonleague win at home.
“They really feed off each other,” Alessandri said of the duo. “They look for each other well, and they understand each other’s games. When they’re connecting, they’re very difficult to guard.”
Craig opened the scoring in the first half, and with the score tied midway through the second half, Sawicki came through with the winner for the Crusaders, who improved to 9-3.
A defender sent the ball through the middle of the field and played Craig down the right sideline. Craig evaded the center back before crossing it over to Sawicki, who finished with a one-touch inside the near post.
In 12 games this season, Craig has 16 goals and seven assists; Sawicki has 12 goals and four assists.
Carver is 7-3 in South Shore League play and trails first-place Cohasset by one point in the Tobin Division. The Crusaders’ remaining schedule is highlighted by another meeting with Feehan (7-2-1) on Monday, and a late-season meeting with Cohasset (8-0-4) on Oct. 28.
