If the Westbury High School varsity boys soccer team had to be described in one word, it would be: vigorous.
They played a hard fought home game against Kennedy High School. From the get-go, both squads were fighting for possession. Westbury’s goalkeeper, Gabriel Perla played with elasticity as he deflected many shots on target. Unfortunately, a header from David Mark gave Kennedy High School a 1-0 advantage before the end of the half.
After being down one goal, Westbury kicked up the pace, keeping the ball on Kennedy’s side for most of the first half. Nelson Trigueros and Sergio Lobos are just a couple of names of those who have worked hard to get Westbury past the final third.
The second half also favored the away team from Bellmore. The big advantage between the two squads was that Kennedy maintained a rhythm in a shorter period of time. At the other end, Westbury worked harder to keep possession, but missed opportunities in finding an opening to goal. Kennedy was fortunate to score two more goals in the half. Along with the great dribbling by Jonathan Benitez in the second half, Westbury tried to overcome the deficit.
The boys soccer team of Westbury High School displayed a tremendous amount of effort in the match. It may have the first goal of the match that put down the team’s spirits. Based on their brilliant efforts earlier in the season, they are definitely capable to finish the season on a high note.
