Boys’ soccer leaves it all on the field

By Jacalyn Murphy

The night of Halloween, most people are concerned about getting their costume on or wondering how much candy they will get. The St. Vincent boys’ soccer team, on the other hand, had a much bigger treat in mind: beating Athenian and advancing in the playoffs. With St. Vincent seeded 9th and Athenian at 8th, both teams knew it was going to be a tough game. Athenian came out strong, scoring three goals in the first half. After that, St. Vincent took control, not allowing any more goals to be scored for the entire second half of the game. A series of unfortunate injuries on key players slowed the Mustangs’ momentum. One of these included center back Landen Gozashti who broke his arm which forced him to sit out the remanding minutes. The score remained as it did at the end of the first half with Athenian coming out victorious.

“We had a much better season than last year and we can only keep improving from here,” sophomore Marcos Hernandez shared, optimistically.
