WANTAGE — The Princeton University men's soccer team made Sunday a memorable day for Derek Watson of Hardyston.

Watson is a 9-year-old boy with a brain tumor, who plays center midfield position for the High Point Lightning U10 boys' travel soccer team. In Watson's first year on the team, the Lightning is undefeated.
