Soccer - JV Boys
The JV boys took on Nequa Valley at home on a beautiful Saturday morning. We dominated the opposition from the get go, putting together a number of slick passing moves. Not for the first time, however, we had trouble putting the ball in the net, and the wind went out of our sails when Nequa Valley scored a couple of soft goals before halftime. We were undeterred after the break and continued to apply pressure, until, with about fifteen minutes to go, Derek Hui scored an amazing solo goal, beating five players before slotting home expertly. Inspired by the goal, the boys swept forward and with about five minutes left, a long shot from Alex Jackson found it's way past the goalie for a deserved equalizer. The bench leapt up in jubilation, and we continued to press forward, narrowly failing to grab the winner.Despite the 2-2 scoreline, this was a great comeback by the boys. It definitely felt like a win, and it was a morale-boosting highlight in what has been a challenging season thus far. We hope to continue this momentum when we take on LFHS at West Campus on Tuesday. Please congratulate the team and consider coming to support us on Tuesday. We are the only team playing LFHS this season since there is no Varsity game!
