The Junior Boys’ Soccer team travelled to UCC Tuesday and earned a hard fought tie. It was an action packed first half that saw both teams score two goals, which was highlighted by an incredible goal by Jesse Codron; setup by a beautiful pass from Matthew Nelson. The second half was a defensive battle with no goals scored. Special mention goes to Aaron Vidal Ribas Smith and Tim Kufner for saving two sure goals near the end of the game. Well done boys!
Our Senior Boys’ Soccer team played their last home game on the season against TFS Monday. After a weak start that put TFS on the lead by two goals, our boys started to gain control of the ball and were able to create many chances. Right before the end of the first half Ege Kusebayt put us on the board with a great goal to end the first half 1-2. The team started the second half with a high pressure and control of the ball that nearly made us tie the game. Sadly two well-constructed counter attacks from the skillful TFS strikers put them with a 1-4 lead that was hard to overcome. Our boys kept fighting and got one more goal in but time run out and the game finished 2-4 to TFS. Great effort guys and a special mention go to our Grade 9 Mateo Rocha that mate his debut playing Senior Level.
The Senior Boys Soccer team travel Wednesday to play against the 1st ranked team UCC. Our boys played a very serious 1st half and had some good chances to get on the lead. A very unlucky break at the very end of the half put UCC on the lead. The second half started with CPC losing Jonas Weissland due to an injury, without subs on the bench Ege had to leave to the field due to a kick for some moments and UCC used the 11 vs 10 players to score twice. Our boys kept fighting and had some good chances to get on board from great kicks from Michael Steinberg and Ege Kuseybat, who put a beautiful freekick on the crossbar with ten minutes to go. In the last minutes of the game, UCC got on the board to set the final score 4-0. Thanks to all the team for this season, especially our graduating players, Sam Douey, Michael Di Battista, Rhys Malisch, Noah Lerner and Robbie Altshuler.
