JV Boys Soccer Scores in Final Minute


On a hot August evening, John Hearne (11), the keeper, tries to block the ball before Portage makes a point, while Mike Horvath (39) tries to make a steal. Portage missed the goal, and eventually all the boys ended up on the ground, toppled on top of each other.

On August 29, the JV boys soccer team played against Portage in the scorching heat. They stuck through the high temperature of 82 degrees and came out on top with a final score of 1-0.

During the first quarter, the boys were getting weary and anxious looking at the scoreboard.

“We never gave up once, and we ended up playing a really good game,” Miguel Palacios (9) said.

The parents cheered and coaches yelled throughout the whole game, and with 30 seconds left, the boys finally scored.

The team ran together in joy to congratulate Kyle Kil (10), the defense player who scored their winning point.

The team will play again on Saturday September 8th against LaPorte High School.
