Island Trees Athletics
The Boys' Varsity Soccer team continued their undefeated season at home vs. Great Neck South. With the team tying their previous 3 games, they were desperate for a win. Tied 0-0 at halftime, the boys were in need of a goal. Late in the second half, with about 10 minutes left in the game, John Pascale hit a nice cross into the middle, where John Carey touched it to the left to Matt Brownstone, who put the ball in the back of the net. With our great defense led by goalie Kyle Riegel, the Bulldogs were able to gain another shut-out and their first win of the season.
