The former defender’s squad captured Villanova University’s indoor soccer title — but the real story involves the semifinal match the night before.
Brian’s route to the finals included a semifinal win over a team with two former Staples Wreckers: Dave Sharpe ’07 and Liam Bohonnon ’08. That match ended in a 2-2 draw. Carp’s side emerged victorious, 4-3, on penalty kicks.
Fortunately, Dave and Liam have memories of a pair of penalty-kick wins at Staples, in the 2006 state “LL” quarterfinals and semis. Those memories should sustain them whenever they see Carp — and his trophy — on campus.
