Varsity soccer Flyers fought their way to a NSCHSAA title in a grueling match against St. Anthony’s. The Flyers came out on top in a 1-0 game.
Time ran out, and the Flyers had managed to defeat their Marianist rivals in the semifinals for the second straight year.
Tensions ran high as the Chaminade Flyers matched up against a formidable St. Anthony’s squad on Thursday, October 22. When Chaminade played St. Anthony’s earlier in the season, the teams tied, and both teams were seeking victory in their last game of the regular season.
The varsity soccer team continued their winning ways on Tuesday, October 20, when the team fought the St. Dominic Bayhawks. This game was not just another league game; it marked the 2015 Senior Game, a time-honored tradition for the oldest members of both squads to reflect on a terrific four years as student athletes.
Chaminade midfielder, Christopher Mercadante ’18 said, “I thought that we fought hard, but came up short right at the end.”
“We were excited to get another opportunity to play St. Anthony’s. They’re our biggest rival, and any time we play them we want to go out and win the game. This time we had a little extra motivation,” said goalkeeper Yanni Rigos ’17.
On Saturday, September 12, Flyers Varsity Soccer took on the Commack Cougars in a friendly scrimmage.
