Bosy soccer looks to finish its season strong with a run to sectionals

Beginning on Aug. 8, the Varsity boys soccer team worked hard to finish with a total of 13 wins and 4 losses with second place in conference and a final record of 4-2. With a five game winning streak earlier in the season, the team was able to surpass it with a six game winning streak with their most recent victory against Addison Trail High School.

This past season, the players competed against several highly skilled teams, such as Marquette University High School, which several team members expressed was their favorite game.

“It was a home game and we beat them 2-0, even though they were ranked 3rd in the nation,” said Varsity player Martin Montoya.

An additional highlight of the season was the Homecoming game on Sep. 23, which celebrated 50 years of Hinsdale Central Soccer by inviting alumni and replicating the original jerseys from 1973.

However, the game that stood out most to students was the game on Sept. 20 against Lyons Township High School which ended in an eventual loss. What most remember it for was the goal scored by Montoya, followed by a serious injury to his leg, which kept him from playing for the rest of the season. 

“I scored five goals this season,” Montoya said. “But if I hadn’t been injured, it would have been 21.”

Varsity Head Coach Michael Wiggins said that he was extremely proud of the players for their competitiveness. 

“I think the way they come on out every day and train and the way they approach each game is at a level that we really expect, and they’ve upheld that,” Wiggins said. 

Senior Gregory Theotikos added, “We’ve really committed to a plan as a unit. I’m looking forward to playoff rounds because there are some really competitive teams we’ll get to play.”

The team’s next game is on Oct. 19 against Hubbard High School and will be the first round of playoffs for the season.
