A-TECH students play in a match against Northwest students.

A-TECH’s soccer club defeated Northwest Career and Technical Academy in a close 4-2 game Tuesday, October 17. This game was a successful effort, not only showing passion for soccer but also giving a boost to school morale.

Students were selected from all grades to be on the lineup, including one freshman as a starter, who scored half of A-TECH’s total goals in the two thirty-minute halves.

“Yeah, definitely [the team cooperated pretty well],” said player Larry Fronda, a junior. “That’s how we scored four.”

Going into more depth, Fronda offered praise to some of his team members.

“Passing up the front was done really well. The transition between our midfielder and our forwards went really well,” said Fronda. “Phillipe and Adrian were on fire. Diego makes amazing plays as well.”

Spectators and players alike agree that excellent sportsmanship was present throughout the game.

“They worked well together throughout the game to side against NWCTA four times,” said spectator Isabel Ceja, a sophomore. “The cooperation between all grade levels this time around was amazing.”

Thanks to coaches Lloyd Bunn and Derek Duggan and the consistent cooperation of the soccer club, A-TECH had yet another great annual soccer match.
