Bartlett sophomore Brain Tondel has been racking up the shutouts for the Indians

Leicester – The Bartlett Indians boys soccer team completed a miraculous run of nine straight unbeaten games Sunday by knocking off the Leicester Wolverines 1-0 and earning a district playoff bid.
The Indians were shutout 3-0 by the 11-5-2 Wolverines earlier in the season and were the clear underdogs heading into the key contest.
Sophomore Kody Morio, who has been playing superbly as of late, scored the lone Indians goal, while goalie Brian Tondel earned the shutout victory in goal.
The young Indians, who have 14 underclassmen and only two seniors on their team, were 1-7-2 and looked to be done for the season when they began their improbable turnaround.
They started their streak with 5-0 win over Quaboag on October 9 and went on beat Southbridge twice, Northbridge, Quaboag a second time, Blackstone-Milville, and finally Leicester. They also tied David Prouty 0-0 in a must win or tie situation.
This is the ninth year in a row Ryan Renauld and the Indians have qualified for the Central Mass playoffs. They won the State title in 2006.
