Grade School Soccer Game Recap
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
The Baby Bisons took on Aurora Waldorf yesterday in the their last game of the season. The Herd played their best soccer all year! The Calves held Waldorf scoreless in the first quarter. Farhad Ghorbani used his offensive skills and cut through the Waldorf several times and was able to get off some quality shot attempts. Ifeanyi Nwabueze was back in action after a 2 game absence from injury. His presence was obvious on the field and he helped our defense. Abdulwadood Mohamed score our only goal late in the fourth quarter. It was a valiant effort by all and the game ended 4-1 Waldorf.
This group has been fun to coach and watch. They have represented the school in a positive manner all season and have tremendous potential in the future! The coaches can’t thank them enough for the efforts that they gave this season.
They have next week off to rest and have fun. Basketball practice starts Monday Nov. 5th.
Overall Record…1 win and 5 losses

The “Calves” gathered the herd yesterday and tried to stampede their way through City Honors. They learned though that skill, talent and numbers prevail over a small group. City Honors had many talented players on their roster and were able to substitute often and keep their players fresh and well rested. The heat was tough to handle for the “Calves” and it left The Herd depleted of energy. The “Calves” worked hard though and remained positive despite the 7-0 loss. They continue to impress the coaches, spectators and officials!
Our record is 1 win and 3 losses. Next game is Oct. 17th against Nichols at 3:45

The Bisons lost 7-0 but never gave up at any point of the game. Shannan Green worked hard on our offensive attack as did Abdulwadood Mohamed and Zarielle Ormsby. EmilyLynn Spillman played great defense as did Ifeanyi Nwabueze. Emily Benson contributed off the bench as well. The Bisons left the field with a loss but earned the respect of the Elmwood Franklin players and fans.
Our record is 1 win and 2 losses. The next game is 10/10 against City Honors.

The Bisons hosted rival Rochester School for the Deaf this afternoon. This annual event is very unique in that it involves two schools for the deaf competing at the grade school level athletically.

Farhad Ghorbani , new to the herd followed up with a goal a few minutes later to make it 2-0. The Bisons went on to stampede their way to victory after the early minutes. "Hollywood" Mohamed found the back of the net 2 more times, Ghorbani scored again and Zarielle Ormsby netted a goal to make the final 6-0 in favor of the Bisons!

The Baby Bisons took on Tapestry this afternoon in their season opener. This year's "herd" came out ready to stampede right from the beginning. They put on a valiant effort and never gave up. The final score was 3-0 in favor of Tapestry. Laci Stoffer was in net as our goalie and did an incredible job in her debut! She had many great saves and kept us in the game. On defense, Saul Alvira, Hassam Alabid and Abdulwadood Muhamed worked hard on protecting our goal. Our half backs were Zarielle Ormsby, Isabella Centinello-Perez, Ifeanyi Nwabueze and Shannan Green. They all showed great endurance on both sides of the ball. Our attack was made up of Emily Spillman, Elliana Sanders and Dalton Burlingame. They applied pressure on offense and threatened to score on several occasions. The reserves...Tim "TimBit" Zeafla, Caleb Zirpola and Di'Ovanny Lacen saw playing time too.
