Martin Middle School in Boys Soccer Upset Win. Q-Finals on Monday
By Bob Rodericks
The Martin boys soccer team pulled off an exciting, what some would call, an upset playoff win today. The Wildcats knocked off the #1 seed powerhouse, Goff Middle School 2-0. "The MVP has to go to 7th grade goalkeeper Nickolas Bento, who made an amazing save of a penalty kick," said Martin Head Coach Chris Januario.
Bento made a number of saves throughout the contest. "We had great team defense led by Jerrey Mercedes, Andrew Jackson, and 8th grade captain and team leader Brett Schwab," added Januario. "Maxamus Collins had a great goal off a rebound from a corner kick. RJ Decampos had an amazing free kick from 35 yards out by placing the ball on the top left corner inside net where no one could save it.
Also scoring a goal was Ryan DeCampos. "It was a hard fought game to final second. We had great team defense led by Jerrey Mercedes, Andrew Jackson, and 8th grade captain and team leader Brett Schwab," said the Martin coach.
The Martin continue their quest toward a state championship on next Monday with a Quarterfinal opponent TBA.
