Boys’ Soccer Discovers Rhythm On Offense and Defense

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Boys’ soccer, 3-1-1, is confident about this season. According to coach Nick Webster, the Gondoliers have been working really hard this season, developing their individual talent and establishing a rhythm on offense and defense.

“There’s an excitement around the squad that they haven’t experienced in years,” he said.

The Gondoliers are full of incredible players with strong leadership throughout the senior group, Webster said. There are also sophomores and freshmen who have “really taken on board with what we have been trying to teach them.”

Junior Billy Quinn, a co-captain with senior Hector Torres, said that junior Zack Lev has contributed enormously as “a shifty attacking midfielder.”

With the quality of the team this year, Webster looks to go far and challenge for the league title.

Torres believes that the team can go far, too.

“We’ve talked about it and agreed on how winning CIF is definitely something we’d want to do,” he said.

Today, the Gondoliers will visit University.

“I think we’re definitely the favorite coming into this game,” Quinn said. “They’re a historically competitive team, but with the form we’re in, we should be able to control the game and shut down any threats they might offer.”

The Gondoliers defeated the Westchester Comets, 1-4, in a 9-0 blowout this past Wednesday. Last Friday, the Gondoliers defeated the Hamilton Yankees 3-0 at home.

“Hamilton is traditionally a very strong team in the division and have given us troubles in the past, but we started the game on the front foot,” Webster said.
