2002 Boys Soccer Team

Class of 2014

The 2002 Boys Soccer Team is celebrated for a dominant season in which it won both the ISL and New England Class A Championships finishing with a record of 14-0-3.  This team represented the culmination of a remarkable run for the program under the leadership of Coach Ben Snyder that included a record six consecutive NEPSAC Class A invitations and two ISL Championships. The team was led by captains Phil Boulay, Nick DiCarlo and Justin Oppenheimer, to whom Snyder attributes much of the team’s success. “They were an extraordinary leadership group, among the best I’ve worked with in my twenty years of coaching,” notes Snyder.  Oppenheimer earned a First Team All ISL selection as the goalkeeper, yielding a mere 0.4 Goals Against Average. Seniors Ashwin Advani, Ian Graham, Alan Rego and Todd Levin rounded out the strong senior leadership group and proved to be the difference makers after injuries threatened their championship run midway through the year.

This team also featured two future professional soccer players in Mike Videira and Chris Tierney. Videira led the ISL with 16 assists and was the Gatorade State Player of the Year and Boston Globe/ISL All-Scholastic Offensive Player of the Year. He was also voted to the Massachusetts and All New England Prep Teams. Tierney set a single season goal scoring record with 26 goals and was voted First Team All ISL.

The success of the 2002 team paved the way for underclassmen like Erik Pridham, Tom Zingale, Alex Dynan, Alex Bain, Ben Cultice, John Lapides, Peter Glenmullen and Granger Beaton who would go on to lead the team to more than 25 wins in the years that followed.
