Boys Modified Soccer Wrap-Up Record Season

(November 5, 2018) The boys modified soccer team finished the season with a 10-0-1 record, which took them to 1st first place in the Colonial Council this year! Below is a summary of the season from the modified boys soccer coach, Coach Hanna:

The team played hard the entire season and showed excellent skill and hustle in the field. The boys were excellent representatives for Ichabod Crane off the field as well, by keeping up with their work and exhibiting good behavior in school. The boys also exhibited excellent sportsmanship. The boys scored 58 goals on the season on 50 assists and only allowed 3 goals against them.

The defense this year was anchored by Erick Loyola, Alexis Cintron, Max Frering,Tyler Van Allen and Kyle Bartlett. Ewan McComb and Jacob Ormerod provided great support off of the bench. The defense did an excellent job keeping the pressure off of the goalie and keeping the ball in the opposing teams' end of the field. Our goalies this year were Gustavo Ramos and Aiden Autry who combined for 34 saves and were the backbone of the defense.

Our Midfielders did most of the running and assisting this year. They did and excellent job of controlling the ball and delivering it to the strikers up front. Our halfback crew was anchored by Nate Garafalo who had the most assists on the team with 10, Brian Bravo, who had 10 goals and Rey Cruz who was our best defensive halfback. The left side of the field was handled very well by Angel Loyola and Dayten Sweeney. The halfbacks got excellent support off of the bench by Wyatt Dolge, Nick Wood, Alex Loyola, and Owen Carpenter.

Our strikers were able to supply incredible offensive pressure on our opponents throughout the season. Ivan Cruz lead the team in goals with 17. Alex Sweeney and Hector Loyola also supplied constant threats up front. Junior Hernandez, Brady Holzhauer and Emmet Fancher provided excellent support off of the bench. Last but not least our "Jack" of all positions was Jack Mullins, who provided valuable minutes all over the field.

It was a pleasure to coach these boys this year. I look forward to seeing the 8th graders make a run at the State Tournament in the future. I am also looking forward to coaching the 7th graders next year to see how the mature as soccer players and young men. Thank you for and excellent season.
