NORTON — Junior Andrew Kubinski tallied twice, while Will O’Brien and Edward Abouzeid were both influential as the unbeaten Norton High boys’ soccer team gained a 5-1 victory over Hopkinton in a Tri-Valley League match at Adams Field Tuesday.
Kubinski scored goals in the third (from Nolan Winfield) and 18th (from Will O’Brien) minutes of the match as Norton (11-0-3) gained a 4-0 edge by halftime.
O’Brien picked up his second point and assist of the match by heading the ball to Jack Rilli for Norton’s fourth goal, the sequence created by an Abouzeid corner kick in the 21st minute.
Abouzeid gave Norton the lead just two minutes into the match with Kubinski assisting. Andrew Dalton created Norton’s fifth goal, at 62, off of an Abouzeid throwin. Derek Alexander blanked the Hillers for 60-plus minutes in the Norton goal, while Kyle Rosa took over for the duration.
“Scoring two goals within the first three minutes and they were quality goals too, you couldn’t ask for more,” Norton coach Eric Greene said. “We scored goals every which way too, off of a throw-in, off of a corner kick, a direct kick, a cross — the boys are playing with a lot of energy.” Norton remains home for a 4 p.m. match Thursday with Millis.
