The Thompson Middle School boys’ soccer team completed an undefeated season posting a 12-0 record and was crowned the Shore Conference of Middle School champion.

Dyaln Millevoi led the team in scoring and set the school record with 23 goals. Sam Tinoco was just one goal shy of deadlocking Millevoi, netting 22. Dom Lupu also contributed offensively with several goals and assists.

Center midfielder Shawn McCann was credited with setting up numerous scoring opportunities. Joining McCann to control play in the midfield were wings Jeff Keagy and Chris Plessing. Justin Sibilia, Will Welsh, Ryan Denery and Nathan Stix patrolled the backfield, providing a solid defense. Tinoco, McCann and Millevoi led the squad as team captains.

The most exciting game of the season occurred in a clash with Holmdel. The Hornets led 1-0 at the half. Thompson locked it up at 1-1 early in the second half, but moments later, Holmdel countered with another goal to regain the advantage. The Lions knotted the score once again and then won by a 3-2 margin on a corner shot in the waning minutes of the contest.

“I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication the Thompson boys’ soccer team gave throughout the season,” second-year coach Brittany Williams said. “Every win was truly a group effort, and it was a pleasure coaching this talented group of boys. I am excited to see what the future holds for all of them.”

Williams’ career coaching record stands at 22-2.
