The boys’ soccer A team ended their season with a 3-1 win over Buffalo last night. Weston P. scored on a beautiful penalty kick and Andrew B. scored his first goal of the season. The East B team won their game 3-1.

The girls' "B" soccer team ended the season undefeated after their win against North Branch last night. All of the girls played well, especially Emma T. who faced several tough shots and walked away with a shutout! Josie V. got the first goal and Emma W. (assisted by Lukanu B.) scored the last goal of the 2 to 0 win. Everyone played well and supported one another! It was a great game to watch.

In their last game of the season, the East Gold B team went out on top, by taking down cross-town rivals West 18-8. The kids came out flying by making multiple stops on defense. East was able to score twice in the second quarter to gain control of the game. The first score came on a long Colin M. pass completion to Mason V.   Jarrett F. found Grayson F. for another passing touchdown as time expired in the first half. East came out a little flat in the third quarter by giving up a safety and a West TD. However, they picked it back up in the fourth by making multiple tackles for losses, highlighted by Nick L. and Hugo P. sacks. Mason V. put the icing on the cake late in the 4th quarter by taking a QB keeper in for a touchdown.   Over the course of the season the team made strides each and every day to become better football players. They never gave up on themselves when the going got tough and stayed humble when they were having success.
