“Two fantastic athletes, two fantastic soccer players, so them being back is phenomenal,” Londonderry coach Derek Dane said.
Londonderry finished the regular season 14-2-0.
“I think we’ve had, thus far, a fantastic run,” Dane said. “If we finish our chances, we’re fantastic.”
Three-time Division 1 defending state championship Exeter (16-0) is the Division 1 top seed.
The Lancers lost 4-3 to Exeter in their season opener Aug. 24. Londonderry’s only other loss was a 1-0 setback against Pinkerton on Sept. 29.
“Exeter is better this year than they were last year,” Dane said. “Bedford (11-3-2) is new to the division so that’s a wild card in itself. Pinkerton (10-4-2) always competes and you always have a dark horse. ... We have the players.”
