The battle continued on the field between the 2 schools from the first game. This outcome is the complete opposite than the first meeting. Both teams battled hard all game. Orange score only one goal because of Amazing goal tending from Ali Faqiri! Ali made some KEY saves that help result in JV Blue Devils in their first victory!!!!!! Keep up the fight boys!

Well fought first half, until the second half where they fell back into their sluggish second half style of play, and could not pull themselves out. As EV scored they were losing their overall focus of game play.
The JV Devils took control early in the game with a long goal scored by Sean. This lead the energy for the Blue Devils to keep working hard for the win. The coaches were trying to figure out ways of keeping it a Sportsmanship game, and not running the score way up. It was unfortunate for James Monroe goalie to be effected by the heat and had to be out the second half.

The JV Devils had had it with losing! They came out in game with a positive charge. Coach Rizzo had to miss the game. The boys fought hard and wanted to win with the mercury rule. Coach Sawicki remind them how they felt when it happened to them. Even though Coach was trying to keep the game fun for everyone, JV Devils kept finding the net. They are slowly coming together as an unit, but they need the same energy the first game after break, and build on what happens in that game. Everyone had a good experience according to the Coaches for Caroline.
They played with determination, and really pulling together, implementing what they are learning on the practice field. Bryan Balderrama scored the lone goal off a corner kicker, playing off the back post.

The boys have put the pieces together and had enough being bullied on the soccer field. They played a well organized game. Junior Lopez lead the charge with the first goal, followed up by Jacob Chavez to give a first half lead 2-1 over EV. Ev came out the second half stronger than the flat footed Blue Devils. EV scored twice early in the second half, but Bryan Balderrama scored a nifty free kick to bring the match to a draw. EV was stun by the play of Culpeper after they pounced on them the first time they met.
It was an off day for the boys. Every team gets those types of days. They played well doing the game plan that they been working on all season in practice. Courtland was playing the long ball and were able to out run the squad, and just got lucky!!!!
