Boys’ Soccer faced Reservoir for their 2015 Senior Night on Friday, October 23. The team honored nine seniors: Shazabe Akhtar, Tom Brown, EJ Fowler, Josh Kim, Savya Konkalmatt, Ian McQuaid, Michael Merkey, Bobby Nasafi, and Phillip Vea. Along with the players, the team’s two managers, Samantha Courtemanche and Peyton Conley were also honored for their dedication to the team.
Centennial dominated the game, and the offense created many goal scoring opportunities. The Eagles were awarded many free kicks which put pressure on the Gator defense.
The Eagles quickly got a goal scored by junior Ammar Narmouq followed by a goal from sophomore Nick Haskins.
Fowler also kept the ball out of the goal, saving the few shots Reservoir generated. The Eagles ended the half with a 2-0 lead.
The lead quickly extended in the second half when Konkalmatt took a shot from the outside, and Merkey was able to finish on the rebound. The Eagles showed incredible speed and passing abilities throughout the entire field. Though they tried, the Gator forwards could not beat the solid Eagle defense.
Merkey scored another goal with 12 minutes left in the game. The final score was 4-0.
The Eagles finished third in the county with a 8-3 record. The Boys’ Soccer team will continue their season into the playoffs.
