CHRISTOPHER J. BARRETT Realtors would like to congratulate Kelsey Czarnota for being named Wakefield Memorial High School Varsity Girls’ Soccer Player of the Week. Kelsey is a junior and a third year varsity player. She was a major factor in the 3-1 win over Watertown and the 2-2 tie against Burlington. Kelsey came into the season late off an injury. Being the natural athlete that she is, she has been able to move back into play with force, determination and the physical fitness that is innate to her. She is able to play a few positions but came on particularly strong last week as Wakefield’s left midfielder. Kelsey never missed a beat on defense, sprinting back on recovery and played as a smart defender, always containing, never lunging and tackling on opportunity. Offensively she keeps Wakefield’s play wide with fast and effective runs down the sideline. Kelsey is always available to her teammates as an option for a pass. She finds space to play the ball and is able to connect with open teammates around her. Creativity in offensive possession is a distinct skill that she embodies. Her presence and participation is heard and felt by all those around her and she is a major reason for her team meeting with success last week.
FIRST ENERGY would like to congratulate Andrew DeCecca for being named Wakefield Memorial High School Varsity Boys’ Soccer Player of the Week. Andrew has been a consistent presence in Wakefield’s lineup since his sophomore year. Andrew plays as a left back defender and his physical style of play has made him one of the top defenders in the Middlesex League. This season Andrew has not only been a force in stopping opposing teams attack but has also been instrumental in supporting the Warriors’ attacking scheme by making overlapping runs up the field. Andrew’s aggressive play up the field and superb crossing ability has given Wakefield countless scoring opportunities. Andrew’s toughness and experience in the back gives Wakefield the edge they need.
