Boys’ soccer ends winless drought with 5-2 comeback win against Notre Dame

The boys’ varsity soccer team resurged from their skid of four straight games without a win in a revitalizing 5-2 comeback victory over Notre Dame Friday night.

The squad conceded two early goals at home to the Knights, including one off of a penalty kick, as Friday night initially looked to be a continuation of the Wolverines’ winless drought. The Wolverines last win had come against St. Francis Jan. 13, having lost three and drawn one in the following four games. However, the team bursted out of halftime with a big push, accumulating its highest goal tally of the season with five goals while holding the Knights to two. Jack Temko ’14 and Henry Quilici ’15 each notched a brace, with Matthew Glick ’15 adding on one more.

Second place in the Mission League, the Wolverines stand with a 3-4-1 record. With four games remaining in the clubs season, the Wolverines will look to build off Friday’s victory and gain late-season momentum against Chaminade and Alemany. The team will matchup once again against Loyola, ranked 2nd in Calif. and ranked 7th in the nation, in their last game of the season Feb. 10.
