Boys Freshman Soccer Ocean Win League Title. Future looks bright!
The boys’ freshman soccer team took the Ocean League by storm finishing the season with a 7-1 league record and an impressive 28 goals scored while only allowing 11 on the campaign in their league leading mark.
“As we moved into the league season and the players got familiar with each other, the team really took shape and we started to gel.” says freshman head coach Krist Colocho.
“We had a solid crop of younger players coming into the school this year and I think our future looks bright” added long time Varsity head coach Louis Espelti. “We should be very competitive for the next few years!”
Driven by the two Jake’s, sophomore Jake Schultz and freshman Jake Aigner, the two players lead the team in goals and assists respectively.
Other vital contributors included Nico Flores and Jesse Tanahara who held down the mid-field with fierce pressure and defending. Jack Busnell was stout in goal all season as was Nicholas Stewart on the back line.
“Soccer is a game which really requires players to understand their role on the pitch and what their teammates will do without tipping their hand to the opposition. It’s a relationship. As the season wore on, we got better and better at reading each other and creating a team synergy which was exciting to see!” said Colocho.
