LAKE HUNTINGTON — In a very important league matchup, Sullivan West boys soccer hosted S.S. Seward Institute on Wednesday, September 13. The match was highly contested, as the teams were deadlocked at 0-0 following one period of action. The first real good look on goal that Seward got came with 14 minutes remaining in the first period, which Sullivan West goalie Austin Nystrom was able to save.
It didn’t take long for the Spartans to break through after halftime, as the visiting team scored a goal less than three minutes into the second period. Nystrom held it down the best he could all game, but the shot from Seward’s Danny Fodera was just out of his reach as he tried to save it.
“We felt that we didn’t play up to par with what we expected them to be at this point,” Sullivan West Head Coach Kristina Verrico said postgame. “This was definitely a winnable game, especially having double the numbers of Seward. We have some things to work on but are hoping the score flips next time and we get a league win when we face them again.”
Verrico noted that they weren’t able to use the full capacity of their bench, as a couple guys had tweaked something prior to the game. The Bulldogs’ had a quick turnaround, as they headed to Eldred High School on Thursday afternoon to face the Yellowjackets following presstime.
Their next game is a non-league game at home against Chapel Field Christian Schools on Tuesday, September 19.
