Walsh, Skarbelis take home top MVC honors

Central girls soccer dominated the MVC this year, posting a 13-0 league record and increasing its unbeaten streak in the MVC to two seasons. Overall, the Raiders went 18-1, outscoring the opposition 75-6.

It’s not then surprising that Central dominated the MVC awards as well.

Six Raiders (Kylie Regan, Alli Wiggins,, Erin Berube, Courtney Walsh, Stephanie May and Aly Spencer) were named All-MVC.

Walsh, who netted 15 goals and added 11 assists, was named the MVC Division 1 Player of the Year.

Haverhill girls also brought home some MVC hardware. Fred Tarbox was awarded MVC Division 2 Coach of the Year. Kelleigh Cokely was named MVC Division 2 Player of the Year. Marlayna Buco earned league Division 2 Goalkeeper of the Year.

North Andover boys took home several MVC honors, Michael Skarbelis earning MVC Division 1 Player of the Year and first-year Scarlet Knights coach Kyle Wood winning Division 1 Coach of the Year.

Skarbelis scored 41 goals and 11 assists during the 2013 season. He finished as North Andover’s all-time scoring leader with 70 goals and 23 assists.
