French and Spanish clubs take their rivalry to the soccer field

Reviving the rivalry between the Spanish club and French club, both clubs battled it out on the soccer field in an annual match on April 8 on the upper field.

The Spanish club won in this intense match during lunch with a score of 3-1.

“The Spanish club outnumbered the French club, which gave us leverage,” Spanish club president senior Angel Hernandez said. “Even though both sides had a lot of varsity soccer players on its team, we still ended up winning.”

Junior Jonathan Junqua had scored the goal for the French club, and was still happy with the results.

“The game was very laid back and fun,” Junqua said. “But the Spanish club overwhelmed us with their numbers.”

About 20 players attended the game to represent each of their clubs. For the most part, the game was a friendly gathering of students who liked a little bit of competition.

“It was really fun,” Hernandez said. “Everyone, including the spectators that came out to watch, enjoyed it. It was a great way to start off spring break.”

The main dilemma facing club presidents was the sporadic rainfall, which had already delayed the game for a couple of days. Yet Friday before spring break turned out to be sunny and dry, and made
for an exciting ultimate match.

“Everything ran smoothly as a lot of players showed up and the weather was great,” Hernandez said. “Overall, it was a pretty successful event.”
