Congratulations to our Intermediate Boys’ soccer team for a wonderful performance at the County tournament. The team started with a 4-1 victory against Scott Young. The second game saw our team win against Ridgewood by a 3-0 score. In our final round robin game (a crucial one) we won against Langton by a score of 1-0. In semi-finals the team met Rolling Hills. Mariposa won the game by a 3-0 score.
In the winterlude-like weather, we met Central in the final. Central was leading by a score of 2-0. In the dawn of the game, last 5 minutes, a quick blitz never give up effort by our monarchs, saw our team score 2 goals to tie the game. The second goal was scored in dramatic fashion on last kick! The score remained the same in extra-time. Central prevailed in penalty shootout.
We are extremely proud of our team. They gave their best effort in practices and games. They displayed sportsmanship, skills and team work.
Big thanks to Mr. Deuchars for convening and helping out lining the field and preparing for the tournament. Special thanks to Mr. Cruyf who reffed both Zone and County tournaments masterfully and braved the weather out there.
A HUGE thanks to Coach Dowell and Coach Kherraji.
