On Tuesday, February 28, the Lads of Consol took on the Rudder Rangers at home. Following a handily-won JV game, the Varsity team took the field, quickly scoring two goals in the first half. However, the Rangers attempted to wrest the lead away by scoring a goal at the front of the second half; the Lads recovered, scoring three more goals for a final score of 5-1. Senior Josh Eidson scored three goals and freshman Cisco Avila and Ulysses Sixtos each scored one more.

“When they scored on us and it was 2-1, kids kind of got nervous, but we were able to put a couple more goals on them, so it’s a good fight and now we get to fight for the championship on Friday at Waco,” head soccer coach Stefano Salerno said.
