Yesterday afternoon, the boys’ soccer team began defense of their three consecutive PSAA regular season championships with a 5-0 win over Waldorf on the home pitch. The victory gave the Bears a 3-0 record on the season and a third shutout. In 240 minutes of soccer, they have yet to concede a goal.
The Brook got the scoring started when James Fay fed Jadon Sung for a goal at the 34:50 mark before James added his own tally with 17:31 left in the half on a penalty kick. The Bears closed the frame with two sensational goals in the final five minutes to hang four first half scores for the second straight game. First, James and John Fay tested the ankle ligaments of the entire Waldorf backfield before James’ heel pass to John fed a Jayson Amin goal that brought the Blue Fan Group to its feet. Then, with just two seconds left in the half, Erick Beausoleil volleyed a massive throw-in from Stephen Cisz into the top shelf that sent another charge through the crowd.
The reserves saw the bulk of the second half minutes, and Amin’s strike from 30 yards provided the final margin, to the delight of the several teams that swelled the stands after finishing their practices. Stephen Cisz, Enoch Guo, and Daniel Kim flew around the backfield, giving Waldorf very few opportunities to even possess the ball in their offensive half. Jason Kim and Sean Kong combined for the clean sheet.
With the victory, the Bears also improve to 5-0 all-time vs. Waldorf. In their last four match-ups with the Wolverines, the Bears have a combined 27-1 margin of victory.
The Brook is back in action on Thursday in a home match-up with Lawrence Woodmere.
