We hear from coaches Brian Karcz and John DiGiacomo that the Boys Varsity Soccer Team earned their 6th straight victory by the score of 4-2 over Lindenhurst on Tuesday. Nik Cerrito and Fernando Hernandez notched 2 goals apiece. Hernandez currently has 18 goals on the season. Jefferson Saravia tallied 3 assists. Anthony Paredes chipped in with an assist. Alec Wurtz made 3 saves for the win.

“We have the ability to put the ball in the back of the net, it’s just a matter of how often we do it and how bad we want it,” said Coach DiGiacomo, referring to several missed opportunities in the first half. “Lindenhurst is a very good team in our league with their only losses coming at the hands of Northport and us, so it was a highly competitive game.” 

The Wildcats' record stands at 9-1-1 overall. The team is on the road for a first-place battle at Northport on Saturday, October 7th at 2pm.
