Soccer Scored This Past Season
After an unexpected victory over Clark the boys soccer team seemed unstoppable. Going into the next game there was a new found confidence that hadn’t been there before, but unfortunately it was quickly diminished in the first half of an exciting third round playoff game against New Branfuels on Tuesday April 5th.
The boys started out quickly with a goal from Reis Woolley scoring in the thirteenth minute. They played tough defensive to hold New Branfuels scoreless in the first half. In the second half NB scored to tie once gain, but less than two minutes later Christian Acala headed in a free kick from Julio Mendoza to score. The teams were evenly matched and both teams played hard but a NB player scored on a long pass to tie the game in the 68th minute. NB scored again on a controversial goal that only the referee seemed to see go across the line. With the score NB 3-2 and ten minutes left the chargers played hard and got some shots off but none went in.
The devastating loss was heart wrenching for everyone, but despite the outcome the boys put up a great fight. This season as been one to remember and everyone is looking forward to even better results next year.
