Boys’ soccer: Falcons shutout in CCS in quarterfinals

March 8, 2010 — by Roy Bisht

After winning the El Camino league and advancing to the quarterfinals in CCS playoffs after a bye in the first round, the Falcons’ season came to an end on Feb. 27 in a 5-0 loss to Sacred Heart.

The Falcons (13-7-1) kept up with Sacred Heart (13-7-3) early in the game, trailing their opponents 1-0 through the first half, but fell during the second half when Sacred Heart scored four goals to increase their lead to 5-0.

“We weren’t playing the same that we had played the entire season,” said sophomore defender and team co-captain Jonathon Junqua. “[Sacred Heart] was a very good opponent, to be honest, they wanted the win more than we did.”

Even though the team’s CCS title hopes were dashed, the Falcons did accomplish a lot this season. With the youngest roster in the league, they surprised many of their opponents this season by finishing first. After the success that the Falcons had with their underclassmen-filled roster, they are looking forward to the next few years.

“I’m looking forward to the next few years with our young team, because we can only get better,” said Junqua. “After pulling off this kind of result, we are all hoping for a stronger result next year.”
