Montclair Kimberley Academy can be forgiven for thinking that the first five minutes of Wednesday’s game between its boys soccer team and that of Verona High School was a blur: Within just 300 seconds, Verona had put two goals on the scoreboard, setting a lead that would carry it all the way to a 2-1 victory.

Jack Farrell found the back of the net first for Verona, on an assist from Ellis Martin. Just two minutes later, the senior scored VHS’ second goal. MKA’s Will Zaubler provided its lone goal.
