A few minutes after Haverford School’s 2-0 win against Shipley at Talen Energy Stadium Sunday evening, the Fords’ Nick Pippin described the feeling of scoring at the Talen venue (he tallied both goals):

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Pippin. “When I saw the ball go in the net, me first thought was a little disbelief, I’m like, ‘Did that just happen?’ I’m just very blessed that I’ve had the opportunity to come out here and give it my best.”

Micheletti, a senior captain, has established himself as a potent soccer striker for the Fords this fall, with four goals and five assists in five games. In the Fords’ recent 1-0 win against two-time defending PIAA state champion Conestoga, the Franklin & Marshall commit orchestrated the offensive side for Haverford, who had numerous chances on goal against the Pioneers. Last fall, Micheletti received All-Main Line soccer honors – as a center midfielder. Read the story on papreplive.com >
