Coach Rick DiStefano’s boys soccer team brought their A game at their home field on October 27’s highly anticipated matchup between Law and Foran. Law scored in the first half, but the Foran Lions tied the game 1-1 in the second half with 6 minutes left. After facing a 2-1 loss at Law in September, the home field proved to be a different setting. Parents and students alike supported both teams in the cross-town rivalry. The highly anticipated matchup between Foran and Coginchaug took place on October 28, and the season ending game was also their Senior Night.

Captains Cedrick Lingane and Leandro Jorge, both juniors, and Jake Kubic, a senior, are all looking to lead the team to success.  Kubic is by joined goalkeeper Prashant Patel, James Berkovich, Joseph Buzelle, Tyler Phillips, and Claudio Dos Santos as the seniors of the team. Juniors include Dan Izzo, Kyle Greenspan, Nico Muoio, Patrick LaPenna, and Jon Brennan.

Foran blew Coginchaug away with a 4-3 win. Jorge scored twice, once with 2:58 left in the first half and 10:52 in to the second half. Berkovich added one goal in the 27th minute of the first half, and Kubic added another one. Patel had 11 saves. The team finished with a 4-11-1 record. Foran had previously won against the team with a score of 4-1.

Along with the victory, the team also celebrated their seniors. Each player got their number placed on the fence with cups and posters next to them. It was obvious each athlete played to honor the seniors and make their last game at home a success.
