The Great Neck North JV boys’ soccer team played conference rival Elmont away on Wednesday. The field was small, and since the Blazers are a quick team with fast feet, it was a challenge playing a different way. The players focused on being compact and using possession to their benefit. Great Neck walked away with a tie.
On Friday, the Great Neck North JV boys’ soccer team played Garden City, the best team in the division, which hasn’t lost a game all season. At the beginning of the season when the two teams played one another, Garden City walked away with a dominant 5-1 win. The Blazers came out Friday looking to avenge that game. Strong dominant play by Sheena scoring a chip-in goal over the goalie and powerful defense by Javaheri and Ohebshalom gave Great Neck a 1-1 tie with the top-ranked team.
The Great Neck North Varsity boys’ soccer team also had a match against Elmont the past Wednesday. When the two teams played each other early in the season, Elmont was the winner. But it was different this past Wednesday. As Great Neck was coming off a win, the team played with confidence and came away a winner. Two goals were scored by William, one goal was made by Isaac Badilla and an own goal, a point scored inadvertently when the ball is struck into the goal by a player on the defensive team, brought the varsity team’s final score to 4-0.
On Friday, the Great Neck North Varsity boys’ soccer team also had a game against Garden City, which has many All-Conference players. This game didn’t turn out as the team had hoped. There were many positives, but Great Neck ultimately lost 3-0.
