Tigers drop game to the Winged Beavers of Avon...
Today proved to be one of the Tiger B soccer team's best outings to date. Playing a team that earlier beat the Tigers seven to one, the Tigers maintained a scoreless game for the first 29 minutes of the 35 minute first half. Both teams had opportunities to put the ball in the goal; and as in the past, goalie Justin Hern proved to be a key player as he made save after save. While missing several players in the line-up because of early departures for the weekend, coaches Yuan and Vianney were so impressed with the tenacity and determination of today's team as they showed how much they have improved their skills in a few short weeks. Avon scored twice in the first period and added two more in the second period to come away with the 4 - 0 win, but Suffield players can leave for the extended weekend knowing that they had fought a valiant battle.
Kudos to the following players for their great efforts today: Luke Bonini, Junyang Chen, Tim Cordes, Andrew Dzhendzheruha, Andrew Gingold for running lines, Michael Greco, Justin Hern, Peter Jiang, Partho Karak, Owen Kinne, Kao Kitichokul, Kenny Lin, Quinn Matthes, Mihn Nguyen, Shinichiro Sato, Teddy Taylor, Henry Lee, and John Zhang.
