  1. Rob Lovejoy got off tonight! On his first goal, he put a move on his defender on the right sideline that put the helpless soul on the ground and then moved in for a shot from about 20 yards out that was drilled in the back left net. A bullet over the goalie’s head that the goalie could not hold on to and rolled in the net for the second goal. Glen Long got tripped in the box and was awarded a penalty kick, which he faked the goalie right and netted back left. Lovejoy’s third goal was sick! He flat out embarassed his defender streaking down the the right side and left him in the dust where he was now one on one with the goalie. Total mismatch. He netted inside left post for the hat trick.
    Lovejoy tourney MVP. Defense was tough and goalie Tom Jackson played a great game.
    Great season for Page!

  2. Rob Lovejoy for HS Soccer is what Keenan Allen is for HS Football.

    This Lovejoy kid is the biggest soccer name to come through this town in many years.(Would the previous name be Eddie Pope????? Lovejoy is there and headed further…..)

    He has become a household name in local sports in recent weeks and he is deserving of the recognition he is receiving…..

    This kid is the real deal.

    Great job by all the Pirates in becoming State Champions and thanks to Joe and Emily for posting the game information/results…..

  3. I am not much of a soccer fan but I did follow this run by Page and Grimsley with some excitement. Before we completely move on to basketball, I would like to know some more about these kids such Lovejoy and the soccer program for next year (Page and any other good programs locally). What year are the main players (senior, junior, or what) and are any of these kids attending/signed with any colleges for soccer?

  4. Two of the main cogs, Rob Lovejoy and Glen Long are seniors and they are both headed to North Carolina to suit up for the Tar Heels next fall.

    Not sure about the keeper Tom Jackson, but I do believe he is a senior also.

    Will work to get more and we might a season of success summary coming from our team of JB and EC before the end of the week….

  5. Emily, it might be nice also to get a summary about that “other” Greensboro team that also went undefeated and won a state championship. You know, the team that more than held its own in a 1-1 tie with Page (outshooting the Pirates 24-11 on their home field) and is on average significantly younger than the Pirates . . .
