FARMINGDALE — For nearly 27 minutes in the second half Thursday, the Monmouth Academy boys soccer team kept unbeaten Hall-Dale off the scoreboard.
Considering the Bulldogs have outscored their opponents 44-2 this season, that was a feat in itself. The 27-minute span was a moral victory of sorts, since Hall-Dale built a five-goal lead in the first half. The Bulldogs went on to post a 7-1 win to run their record to 6-0-0 with tests looming Saturday against Dirigo and early next month against St. Dominic.
“They come at you in waves,” said Monmouth coach Joe Fletcher, whose team falls to 1-3-2. “They’re deep, they’re skilled and they’re well coached.”
