Varsity Boy’s Soccer Team Defeats Poly 6-2

By Alvaro Flores-Villegas,

The varsity boys soccer team defeated Poly 6-2 on October 13, 2016 at Patterson. This put the boys in a good spot for the playoffs and to hope to advance to the regional championships.

“I was satisfied with the comeback because at first we were down 2-1 before halftime”, said Coach Callahan. “They were ready to play us because they were pressuring us and playing aggressive and we were playing real lazy. We underestimated them because in the past game at their turf we beat them 3-0”. Coach Callahan also stated, “2nd Half was much better because we were passing the ball much more and ended up scoring 5 more goals in the second half”.

During the game, the leading scorer, #11 Minyim scored 1 goal in the first half and 3 goals in the second half, claiming his hat trick of the game. #20 Edwin scored 1 goal and #7 Andy scored 1 goal. At the end, the Patterson Clippers claimed victory against Poly 6-2.

The first round of playoffs was against Eastern Tech where the Clippers were defeated 3-1, putting an end to their season. Hopefully the Clippers will have another chance at the Regional Championship next year.
