2015 Boys’ Soccer Preview: Buckfield


Coach: Kyle Rines (third year)

Conference: East-West Conference: Class: D

Last year: 13-4, lost in Western D final.

Returning players: Seniors — Jon Randolph (F), Sidney Jackson (F), Alec Brough (FB), Bryan Chabe (FB), Hunter Wiley (MF), Noah Patenaude (MF); Juniors — Jake Kraske (MF), Matt Beaucage (MF), Hunter Foss (FB), Simon Burch (FB), Jake Hackett (MF), Mike Henderson (F); Sophomores — Ethan Jackson (MF), Zack Grover (FB), Andrew Warren MF).

Promising newcomers: Freshmen — Dylan Harvey (F), Noah Wiley (FB).


Season outlook: The Bucks graduated Eastman, an all-state defender, but return Randolph, an all-state forward that could break the school’s scoring record this season. Buckfield has a number of players back from a team that reached the regional final before losing to Richmond, 1-0. Rines says his club is younger than it was a year ago, but he hopes the Bucks can build off last year’s success.
