The host Country Day soccer team defeated Faith Christian 3-1 on Oct. 21.
The Cavs controlled the scoring from the beginning. Sophomore Miles Morrow scored early in the first half, followed by freshman Jacob Chand, and sophomore Ethan Monasa tallied in the second half.
“It felt really good to score that goal,” Morrow said. “I thought it was going to be the first of many goals we would score, (but) sadly it wasn’t. Overall, I was happy to help the team to a victory.”
Co-coach George Champayne said the team needs to be sharper in the playoffs, which begin Oct. 29.
“We came out with the wrong mentality and were slow. We have to work on that for playoffs because if we do that in the playoffs, we will be had,” Champayne said. “We were missing a couple of players, but we adjusted. I do wish that we finished (converted scoring opportunities) more, (but) we kept kicking the ball right at the keeper.”
The Cavaliers will end the regular season on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 4 p.m. against Cristo Rey at Country Day on senior night.
