Kent soccer falls to Loomis Chaffee
KENT — On Saturday, Nov. 11, Loomis Chaffee School, a powerful team and longtime rival, came from Windsor to face the Kent School soccer team for the final regular season game of the 2023 season.
From the opening minutes, Loomis clearly took control of the game. Persistent attacks and ball control kept Kent on the defensive.
Kent captain and goalkeeper Mia Montanari was put under constant pressure, making save after save. Despite playing some “Premier League” defense, she was overcome by the frequency of Loomis’ attacks.
Credit goes to Loomis coach Linda Hathorn and her team. Loomis forwards Luisa Thomsen and Tennessee Murphy, assisted by Olivia Beauvois, kept the ball near or in the Kent goal for the majority of the game.
Loomis Chaffee finished the regular season with an excellent record of 11-2-2, the best record in Founder’s League soccer for the third straight year. Kent’s season record ended at 2-10-3.
