The boys’ soccer team qualified for playoffs by beating Lutheran High School, 3-1, at an away game on Oct. 25.

Juniors Ethan Ham and Keegan Crain each scored in the first half, and freshman Emil Erickson in the second half.

Though they won, many felt that the game did not go well.

“It was the worst game of the year,” coach Matt Vargo said.

Crain agreed.

“If we played like this against Buckingham, we’d get crushed,” Crain said.

Players said that they need to work on their shooting.

“We had over 25 shots not ‘on frame,’” Ham said.

Junior Erik Morfin-Ruiz said that he had missed a lot of chances to score.

Sophomore Adam Ketchum was injured during the game.

“A guy rolled on top of my leg, and my ankle might be sprained,” he said.

The team will next face arch-rival Buckingham on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 4 p.m.
