This school year, students are flooding the fields to watch Varsity Soccer dominate the league.  School spirit levels are higher than ever before with the help of Pack the Den, and Masters’ growing attention to athletics. Valuable additions to the team, as well as strong coaching and teamwork have lead them straight for the finals.

The FAA (Fairchester Athletic Association) semi-final game on Wed, Nov. 9 got off to a rough start with Masters allowing two goals to Rye Country Day School (RCDS). However, the boys did not change their hard work ethic, even if it meant fighting through excruciating pain and cramps.

“Anything can be achieved if the mind and soul is set towards it. We failed to be the winning team for the first 20 minutes, but that didn’t change how we played. We faced our failure, and we changed it into success through hard work and determination,” senior Raji Ahamad said.

In the win against RCDS, senior Geoff Fox scored two of the goals and sophomore Andy Lomeli scored the remaining goal. All three goals were scored with passion and determination, with huge celebrations after. After letting in the first two sloppy goals, the team united in order to keep their season going.

Now that they have won the semi-final, the team is shifting their attention to the final game on Sat, Nov. 12 against Green Farms Academy (GFA). Similarly to RCDS, Masters is hoping for a win against GFA, and the team is confident in its abilities to do so. Fox said, “I expect to win against GFA, but it isn’t going to come easy. What everyone can expect from our team is that we aren’t going to come out slowly like we did against Rye. Everyone on the team is ready to fight until they’re collapsed on the floor, needing to get carried off the field to get this final win.”

The passion in Fox’s voice is evident, and with such strong senior leadership behind them, the team gets set to take on the final game.
