The Whitman faithful were all there- soccer fans to cheer on their team. It was a big, really big game, after all Brentwood didn’t sit atop the standings charts for just being ok. In what turned out to be a classic battle, both teams left it all on the field, ending regulation time knotted at one apiece. The sudden win overtime was a nail-biter with both teams pressuring.

Midfielder Michael Lorello had a free kick from the sideline, about 30 yards from the goal, and in the scrum that ensued, the ball ended up in the back of the net. Witman Hernandez was there and so was Sean Zagorski, but it was Lorello who last touched the ball from Whitman and gets the credit for the goal.

Final score Walt Whitman 2, Brentwood 1.

Coaches Corner: The Boys Varsity Soccer Team punched their ticket for the Suffolk County Finals with an overtime victory over top seeded Brentwood on Monday by the score of 2-1. After giving up an early goal, the Wildcats settled down and took control of the game. Fabrizio Chamorro got the equalizer early in the second half on an unbelievable individual play. Both teams had several chances in regulation, but neither team could push one across the line. Michael Lorello got credit for the game winner in overtime after a Brentwood defender headed the ball into his own goal.

The Wildcats will now take on Commack on FRIDAY night at 6:30pm at The Dowling Sports Complex in Shirley, NY. Please come out and support the team in their quest for their first county championship since 1996.
