On August 30, the Trojan boy’s varsity soccer team faced the Andrean 59er’s. The game was held on the Andrean football field which was lined for the soccer game.

The game was constantly shifting from offense and defense plays. With very few subs being played, the starters who began the game finished it off as well.

Varsity Captain Jackson Raycroft, sophomore, said, “We’re pressuring more than they’re pressuring us, so we’re just cleaning up their bad balls (bad passes),” when speaking on game performance from his team.

The team played hard even after player junior Anders Schoueorg had been yellow carded for “kicking the ball out of the keeper’s hand,” Schoueorg said, “He (the goalie) was just holding onto my leg.”

Highland scored a goal in the first quarter by senior Elias Ortega, whom quickly became injured.

With two minutes and46 seconds left in the game, freshman Dane Richardson shot and scored a goal from beyond 30 yards out.

This finalized the Trojans’ victory with a 2-0 score as the clock ran out.

The Trojans’ second victory this season shows improvement in the team’s communication.
