The second Ranked BCC Men’s soccer team defeated Shoreline (SHCC) 4-1 last Saturday. This was the final game of the regular season,”but you got to finish the season.”
“It feels good to win the easy games,” said Vini Oliviera, BCC Forward.
It all started within the first five minutes of the game, with Oliviera making a run for the goal. He was stopped by Shoreline defenders and could not take the shot. So Oliviera passed the ball off to Gilbeto Robayo, BCC midfielder. Robayo took the shot and it landed squarely into the goal box. Giving BCC a 1-0 lead at three minutes into the game.
Shoreline would follow up with a goal at 10 minutes into the game. This would be from a kick that went right past the Ian Fewing, BCC goal keeper, into the net. It was kicked by Scott Graff, SHCC forward, with an assist by Jordan Ingalls, SHCC forward. This gave Shoreline a 1-1 tie, and their only point of the game.
BCC got another score with a shot into the high corner off shoreline’s goal box at 18 minutes. Bryce Coffin, BCC defender, made the kick with an assist by Jordan Correa, BCC midfielder. This gave BCC a 2-1 lead going into the half.
During the half, Adam Fenster said the team needed better communication between each other, and that they were doing a better as a team overall.
BCC’s third goal came with another Coffin goal with an assist by Correa at 68 minutes. Correa passed the ball to Coffin who was making run to the corner of the goal line. Evan Gaul, SHCC goal keeper, dove to block the ball too early; allowing to kick the ball over him. This set the score at 3-1 in favor of BCC.
The final goal of the game came with five minutes left to go. Matt Eronemo, BCC defender, taking another shot over a prematurely diving Gaul. This was assisted by Coffin and gave BCC the final score of 4-1
“It was a good game,” said George Dremousis, Shoreline soccer coach, “both teams played very hard.”
