The Jr. High Raiders defeated a talented Springdale team 2-0 today at Springdale. The Raiders offensive leaders were Chris O’Toole with 2 goals and Carsyn Giuliano with 1 assist. Once again the Raiders won because of a great team effort, everyone contributed and everyone gave 100% effort on the pitch. On offense Quinlan Catnazaro played very well up top, making good plays and putting constant pressure on Springdale. Carsyn Giuliano continues to put himself in position to make plays and Carter Loughren looked good and played smart, keeping the ball moving towards Springdale’s goal. Chiara Burn was fantastic in Midfield! She hustled the entire game, making numerous good passes and defending excellently. Both Devin Murphy and Max Kratt played well in midfield as well, they never stopped hustling. They kept the ball moving continually up field to the offense and were stout defenders on defense. The defense was once again stellar! Drew Hunter, Simon Meals, Matt Orbin, and Carter Baldwin only allowed Springdale a couple of scoring chances the entire game. They kept the ball on Springdale’s half of the pitch for most of the game. Drew Ogrodowski was good in goal, earning the shutout against Springdale.
