On October 9th the JV soccer team played Union in the Union County Tournament game. The team played at Union on a large grass field similar to the turf at Oratory. The game started out very intense on both sides. The Rams came out very strong and continued to pressure Union throughout the entire game. In the first couple of minutes Nick Toscano took a kick to the eye causing him to have to leave the game early to get checked out. The team continued on pressuring the strong Union defense getting numerous attempts on goal. However, Union pressed forward and scored a goal on Michael Koomar. Koomar played very solid defense as a goalkeeper throughout the entire game as usual. Towards the end of the half Nick Browne received a yellow card and had to come out of the game. At the very end of the half the score was still 1-0 Union. The second half started just as the first with both sides playing intensely and aggressively. Another yellow card was delivered to freshman Diego Legaspi which led to him to sitting out as well. Towards the middle of the second half there was an intentional handball inside the box against Union. The ball was bouncing and another member on Union thought he heard a ball so he picked up the ball with his bare hands. However, the referee did not notice this and let it slide. The referees missed many calls against Union that could have changed the game. Unfortunately, the game ended 1-0 Union. However, the Rams played some of the best soccer they’ve played all year. The team plays again on October 16.
