Boys Varsity Soccer
Those wild coyotes came alive and went on the hunt yesterday. The boy’s soccer team scored 4 goals against those fine young men from Hoosick Falls. It was a tough game as Hoosick Falls must’ve seen the storm coming and struck first and scored a goal quickly as the game commenced. But our boys reacted like a cornered animal and roared back and took down their prey as they peppered the goal with countless attempts and then finally breaking through. Kasey Billert led the charge with ample support from Danny and Cody Hunt. Superb passing from Dylan Lambert pushed the team forward. Solid defensive pressure was applied by Peyton Labonte, Gabe Colin, and Josh Bosso. The magical motion of Conner Voltra can’t be described, it has to be seen, as he moved around and played multiple positions on the field. If you want to see this in person- the boys are taking on Mechanicville on Thursday at 4:30 down in our home away from home, the den in New Lebanon. Come cheer them on as this will be the toughest game so far this season.
