In last night's home opener, it was the varsity soccer team winning their second game in a row by defeating the Parkway Central Colts 3-1. It was an all-senior scoring affair as Blake Smugala, Will Brockmeyer, & Kyle Barnes all chipped in with goals. The varsity soccer team's next match is Saturday evening at home vs. Oakville at 7pm.
Well the B-soccer team was at it again and in record setting fashion! Before most fans and their teammates had found their seats the JR. Griffins had scored twice in 26 SECONDS! And even more amazing, the Colts from Parkway Central kicked-off both times.. 16 seconds after kick-off Brandon Love scored off a pass from Joey Delbert. Then 10 seconds later Delbert scored off a pass from Anthony "AC" Christante. #3 was scored by Will Klages from Tim Lupo and #4 was by Love again from Delbert. #5 was scored by Lupo off a pass from Matt Schneider just before halftime. Then just after the 2nd half started, Schneider scored off another Lupo assist and AC closed out the scoring on an unassisted break-a-way with 8 minutes left in the game to make it 7 - nil. Matt Bokamper got another shutout that was assisted by a variety of Jr. Griffin defenders.
