Boys soccer hoping to improve on ’09 success

Brian Doyle, Staff Reporter

Can the 2010 boy’s soccer team reach the level of success they had in the 2009 season? Last season, the varsity team earned the title of regional champions. This season the Bulldogs lost their backfield, but they hope to replace that lost talent through hard work.

Captain Alex Amaya said, “We have loads of young kids with talent. We just need to work hard to prevail this season.”

This year the Dogs are being led by senior captains T.J. Armic and Amaya. Armic said, “We have a chance for conference, but it won’t be easy. It’ll be even tougher to re-win regionals.”

The season began Thursday, September 2nd. The Bulldogs started off with a big win over conference rival Elmwood Park 7-3. The star of the game was clearly junior Ruben Chavez, starting off his season strong with four goals, (three goals and one penalty kick). Chavez is a junior who shows promising ability.

“Last year I scored 21, this year I want 25,” said Chavez. Chavez is just one of the talented strikers RB offers. The varsity boys offer a strong offense this year. They have many returning starters, unlike the defense.

The team shows a lot of skill this year. All regular season games are free this year to fans who want to support the dogs at Shuey Stadium.
