WEBUTUCK — Prepped for a vigorous season on the field, the Webutuck varsity boys soccer team put up a spirited fight against Millbrook High School at a recent game on Friday, Sept. 6.

The home game began at 4:15 p.m. Standing tall against the early fall chill, Webutuck family members and local soccer fans stood along the fence bordering the field, ready to cheer their support from the sidelines.
