The boys varsity soccer team played in a two day tournament hosted at Hampshire High School last weekend. The team started off on the wrong foot, losing their first game to Woodstock North who they had previously beaten earlier in the season.

The Sequoits could not catch a break on the first day of the tournament. They lost their second game against Bartlett High School who outplayed them, finishing with a score of  5-2.

“I feel we played alright against Bartlett and Woodstock North,” junior forward Alexander Keeler said. “The results aren’t what we wanted. We were missing a few players and trying some new tactics but overall, it opened our eyes to what we can improve upon in the future.” 

The Sequoits fought back on day two, defeating Harvest Christian Academy High School 2-0. The two goals were scored by Keeler and senior midfielder Gabriel Tijerina.

“I think we played collectively well as a team by making possessions and making great opportunities for ourselves to get the win,” junior defender Christian Ortiz said.

The Sequoits advance to a record of 6-9-2. Their next game will be played at home tonight against Deerfield.
