Boys’ Soccer Ready To Face University Today

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Boys’ soccer, 7–4–1, will face the University Wildcats today at 4:30 pm

“I think we’re definitely going into this game expecting a victory,” said junior Billy Quinn, a co-captain with senior Hector Torres. They’ve been confident in their gameplay this whole season.

The Wildcats are currently 4–1–3 in the league. The Gondos are “feeling ready” for the match, Quinn said. 

The team is confident about their upcoming game after their lights-out performance against the Westchester Comets this Wednesday. They shut them out 6-0.

“Westchester historically aren’t a super competitive side, but the team still played well and earned a dominant victory,” Quinn said.

Coach Webster has done a good job in ‘leading and motivating’ the team.

“He’s come with an enthusiasm for the game that has made all the players back him up, and fight for the team,” said Quinn.

As it’s Nick Webster’s first year here at Venice, the team thinks he is a game-changer for the league.

Webster wants the team to be in the ‘peak form’ throughout playoffs believing that the Gondoliers are a talented bunch.

“I like our attitude. I like our commitment to each other and I think this will be an outstanding year for the Venice boys soccer.” 

Quinn attests to the team’s commitment and acknowledges the difficulty of the competition they are facing. “The league we play in is a notoriously competitive one, so each game is as hard if not harder than what we will play in playoffs,” he said. 

“We’re not taking any team we play lightly and take each game as they come.”
