Boys Soccer
Silk Hope vs. Margaret Pollard 10-16-2014
The boys soccer team played away against Horton. We let one goal in early in the game and then fought hard to get it back. Scoring for our team was Daniel Soto with an assist by Thomas Smith. The game was played hard by both teams, but Silk Hope pulled it together in the second half, playing incredibly well the rest of the game. In spite of our increased efforts and good teamwork, a second goal from Horton slipped in the net and the final score ended 1-2. Camden Fuquay played the entire game in goal. Our next game is Monday at Horton.
