This afternoon the boys’ soccer team completed the season sweep of Port Jefferson in a dominant 6-2 victory, securing a postseason berth for the third straight year. The Bears have won their last 8 games vs. the Royals by an aggregate score of 39-10.

In the first match-up of the season, the Bears prevailed in a taut, 3-1 affair under the home lights. Today’s game appeared to be following a similar script until the Bears unleashed a second half cannonade that buried Port Jeff beneath an avalanche of offense.

The Royals got on the board first, jumping out to a 1-0 lead in the 3rd minute. Chris Swiatek equalized, courtesy of a David Wadding assist, to knot the score at 1-1 at the half. Jai Narain scored the first goal of what would become a hat trick, off of a cross from Ian Blunt, to give the Brook a 2-1 edge early in the second half. The lead was short-lived as Port Jeff quickly tied the game at 2-2.

At that point the game seemed destined for a tight finish; instead the Bears ripped off four straight goals to decisively finish off the Royals. Swiatek began the run off of an assist from Aidan Mega. Narain scored his second on another cross from Blunt to push the Bear edge to 4-2, then completed his hat trick on an assist from Mo Romeus. Owen Sobel capped the scoring off of a corner kick from 8th-grade sensation Tiger Winston.

The Bears return to the pitch on Saturday in a scrimmage with the Ross School.
