On Wednesday, September 17, South Lancaster Academy’s soccer teams both played again Trivium. Both teams went into the game with high hopes for their second game of the season, especially after suffering disappointing losses that previous Monday.The girls’ team played really well on Wednesday, and definitely improved since their last game. Unfortunately, Trivium won 4-2. During the first half of the game, Alexis King scored a goal. Mikaela Hernandez, also an 8th grader, scored a goal in the second half and was assisted by sophomore Edyn-Mae Stevenson. Even though the Lady Crusaders lost, it was a close game up until the end. The team has a positive attitude about moving forward and winning the next game.

The boy’s game against Trivium was very eventful. Igor Delinski scored a goal with an assist from Kurtis Bakerlis. Then Kurtis scored two goals, being assisted by Leo Zamo. Also, Alex Castro scored a goal off a free kick. Overall, the game was successful and the Crusaders won 4-1.

“I thought it was an awesome, fantastic game. Usually only our defense is great but this game our offense was really good as well.” – Luis Reveron

Both teams displayed outstanding defense and passing skills, and showed improvement from their previous game. Although the girls were disappointed about losing, at least they can say that they improved and played really well, and there is always hope for the next game, and for the rest of the season.
