Boys Tame Lions in League Soccer Match

Boys Tame Lions in League Soccer Match

Harvey’s boys varsity soccer team scored early and often Friday, Oct. 15, to take a 6-2 victory at home against HVAL rival The Master's School Lions of West Simsbury, Connecticut.

The Cavs scored six first-half goals to cruise to the victory. Leading the way for Harvey on offense was sophomore Luca Vega who finished the game with two goals and an assist. The team got single goals from four other players.

In the fourth minute, Vega opened the scoring after he received a pass from Clayton Collum just outside the penalty area that sent him in all alone. Three minutes later senior captain Keenan Kheirolomoom ran onto a loose ball at the top of the box and fired a one-time shot that deflected off a defender and went past the goalkeeper for Harvey’s second tally.

Just nine minutes into the game Harvey scored the third goal. Vega attacked the center of the Master's defense and slid a nice pass to Chris Conoscente who hammered a shot off the far post and into the net. With Harvey controlling the game, fullback Rubin Becker got into the offense in the 18th minute when he intercepted a pass in the midfield, dribbled through numerous defenders, and dished a great pass to Vega for his second goal of the game. 

In the 29th minute, freshman Jonah Kass beat his defender wide and gave himself a mini breakaway. Kass found room on the near post and sent the ball past the Lions goalkeeper. Later in the half on a similar play, Kass elected to pass the ball to a wide-open Alex Piper in front of the net for Harvey’s final goal.

Throughout the game Harvey’s defense was solid. After several injuries, the core of the defense has been tested.  Becker and senior Luis Felipe Breidenbach have been regulars throughout the season.  Against Master's, Stepan Romenskiy, Armaan Bhaskar and Mitchell Yurko all stepped up and played significant minutes. Goalkeeper Charlie Hildebrandt made one save in the first half of play while Brody Israeloff made two saves.

In the second half, Harvey dominated ball possession and some of the younger members of the team saw significant playing time. Impressive performances came from freshmen Israeloff and Ryan Byrne.

With the victory, the Cavaliers improve to 3-4 on the season but 3-1 in the HVAL.  Harvey’s next game is Monday, Oct. 18, when the Cavs host Christian Heritage School in another key league game.
