FRANKLIN — Sophomore goalkeeper Tyler Rocchio took care of business in protecting the net of the Attleboro High boys’ soccer team while his punting resulted in the lone Bombardier goal of the Hockomock League match in a 1-0 victory at Franklin High Monday.
“We worked our butts off, we won a lot of balls,” Attleboro High coach Peter Pereira said of the Bombardiers’ first victory of the season.
The Panthers were limited to three shots with Rocchio protecting the goal line. It was also his booming punts out of the back line that held Franklin at bay, while setting up senior Connor Adema for the lone goal of the match, during the first half.
Lucas Marques, Toby Smith and Jake Stromfors were staunch on the defensive back line for Attleboro while Esvin Morales never stopped running at midfield.
“It was a good effort, we dug in for the final 20 minutes,” Pereira said.
Attleboro hosts North Attleboro Wednesday at Tozier-Cassidy Field.
