The Dominican boys’ varsity soccer team played St. Anthony’s on Monday October 8th. The Dominican boys record going into the game was 3-3-3 which is a very respectable record. This is because they have played many of their games against top ranked opponents. They were looking for a big momentum win going into the playoffs. St. Anthony’s was 6-4-2 heading into the game, including a tie against the best team in division 4, University School. St. Anthony’s was the favorite in this match-up, but our knights knew that they had the talent to beat this team. St. Anthony’s has beaten Dominican for 5 years in a row according to Nathanial Rouse. Tensions were high in this contest. Sam Keehan received a red card late in the game for an altercation he had with a player on St. Anthony’s team. This gave the Knights motivation heading down the stretch of the game.
Dominican was down 2-0 early, but rallied back and ended up with a 4-2 victory over St. Anthony’s. This win shows how our team never gives up, no matter how bad things were looking. Goals were scored by Seniors Francisco Hernandez and Samuel Yarmulnik, Francisco having one and Sam having 3. Sam has been a goal scoring machine this season, and he leads the team in goals scored. This was a great win for our Knights heading into the playoffs.
