The 2017 ANC boys soccer season was a good one. While the teams did not reach the heights of the season before, they still played many great games and beat some teams that they rarely do. The varsity finished its difficult schedule with a record of 10-7-0. Some highlights include recording its first ever win over Hun School, sticking with a very good Springside Chestnut Hill squad until late in the game, defeating local rivals Lower Moreland, and defeating Moorestown Friends 2-1 on two beautiful goals by Declan D. The varsity ended its season winning the Quaker Cup by defeating Westtown 3-2, ending the season on a high. The JV finished the league season tied for 5th place with a record of 3-3-1 in the league. While both teams graduate some talented and experienced seniors, there is a lot of returning talent to be excited about. We will see you next year.
