Boys Soccer recorded a lopsided 5-0 victory over Crockett on Senior Night at House Park. Seniors Agustin and Martin Ugarte grabbed a goal each in the first half. Luis Lopez made it three, before the Class of 2018’s Brayan Garcia and Shelove Dorsainvil finished the game off with goals 4 and 5.
Lanier started the match with ten seniors as Erick Sarmiento, Ivan Lopez, Alejandro Amador, and Agustin created a solid back line with the lone Junior in the team Michael Varela. In central midfield Martin and Andres Zuniga controlled the tempo and provided service for Shelove, Brayan, and the irrepressible Melvin Andrade up front. Jorge Nava played a flawless game at keeper and will be proud to have kept a clean sheet on Senior Night.
Important contributions came off the bench from Seniors David Valdez and Brayan Reyes who provided width in attack, and from Manny Reyes who locked down the central midfield areas with his calm, simple possession. The team also benefited from the enthusiastic support of Senior Mario Gomez, who was disappointed to be ruled out from playing by injury, but made the most of his opportunity to moonlight as an assistant coach from the bench.
Many thanks go out to all of the Lanier teachers and staff for their support of our student-athletes Friday night and the entire school year. Thank you for pushing them to become the greatest versions of themselves. The Boys Soccer Program is also especially grateful to Mr. Shanahan for his superb work as Master of Ceremonies and to Mr. and Mrs. Beaman for their classy participation in the Senior Night Presentation with two of our finest young men.
