GRADE SCHOOL RECAPS FROM COACH STANTON AND LACKEY
September 24, 2014
Once again, the team had another fast start as Nick Barrus scored his first of 4 goals just 7 seconds into the game. Global Charter School prevailed 6-4 but the SMSD players showed vast improvement over last week. The defense did a better job of clearing the ball and offense moved the ball forward more often than last week. Isa Habeeb and Sara Rosario each played a half of goalkeeping and had some outstanding saves. Our next game will be on Wednesday October 1st against Aurora Waldorf School. Please come out and support the team!
Yesterday, we had our first game of the year against Elmwood Franklin. Kassim Kassim got our season off to a good start by scoring the first goal of the game. Unfortunately, we were not able to score any more goals and the game ended 7-1 in favor of the visitors. Nick Barrus, Ed Bartnik, and Sabina Bajgai also had scoring chances. The last attempt at a goal was an exciting one when Kearah Kelly got ahold of the ball and weaved in and out of players twice her size right up to the goal in an attempt to score. Goalkeeper Isa Habeeb performed admirably and made countless great saves.
Be sure to congratulate Michael Norris, Abby Northway, Francois DeGrasse, Emma Foster, Julia Bronnenberg, and Kioney Alvira in playing their first soccer game at the Grade School level. Our next game is Wednesday September 24th against Global Charters School at 3:45 pm, the kids would be very excited to see you all there!
