Boys’ soccer falls to Crespi

Ben Tenzer

The boys’ soccer team lost to Mission League rival Crespi 2-0, falling to an overall record of 4-7-1 and 2-3 in league. This was the team’s first matchup against the Celts and will face off again in the final game of the season on Feb. 8.

Midfielder Asher Vogel ’19 expressed the squad’s disappointment in the loss.

“Without a doubt that we were the better team, so we need to work on closing games like that,” Vogel said. “That means no defensive lapses for the whole 80 minutes and being ruthless in front of goal. There was no reason we shouldn’t have scored in that game.”

Vogel ensured that the team’s morale was not heavily impacted by the defeat.

“Of course everyone is bummed after a loss, and it’s only worse that it was a ‘winnable’ game, but no one is near giving up on the season or anything like that,” Vogel said. “It’s disappointing, but we’re ready to bounce back against St. Francis at home on Friday.”

The boys will face the Troubadours at home on Jan. 19.
