Boys Soccer Success

Anne Cassano

On November 1st, the West boys soccer team won their quarterfinal game against Ocean City. Zach Bruno scored 1 goal for the team with an assist from Sean Tyler. The team was up 1-0 at the end of the first half. Ocean City scored during the second half, which tied the game and sent it into overtime. After a long, hard battle in overtime, the tie still stood, and the teams faced off in a penalty kick round to determine the winner. Zach Bruno described the penalty kicks as “nerve-wracking,” but he also stated that “We knew that our practice would pay off.” Varsity goalie Ian Sachs saved the shot and secured Cherry Hill West’s victory. The boys will play the Pinelands team on Monday, November 5th, at 2pm. We wish the boys best of luck and show our support as they give their all in the game that will bring them to the final.
