It was a feat that I had never seen before, and after talking to coaches in the past 48 hours, it sounds like no one has.
Horace Greeley senior Matt Neuberger had a stretch during Friday’s first round playoff game in which he scored more goals (three) than minutes played (two). I saw the first goal, went to tweet about it, and missed the second while I was typing. By the time I looked up again, all I saw was Neuberger’s third goal hitting the back of the net.
“That was pretty awesome,” Neuberger said.
I’d say so.
Neuberger added a fourth goal in the second half, capping the most impressive playoff performance on a day that was filled with them. He’s a relentless striker, and when he’s rolling like he was on Friday, the Quakers become a very difficult team to beat. Neuberger finished the season on a hot streak and rode it right into the playoffs, which bodes very well for Greeley’s chances in Class AA.
