The JV boys soccer team has had a shockingly successful season thus far, the soccer team hopes to finish the season strong. The team is undefeated with a record of 6-2-0.

Last year was a very disappointing season for the boys, as they were only able to come away with 1 win and finish off the season with a record of 1-2-8.

“The season has gone really well this year in comparison to our previous year, we are moving the ball and communicating better,” said sophomore midfielder Matthew Parraga.

The boys’ undefeated record was challenged on Wednesday against the West Potomac Wolverines. The team snuck away with a tie by scoring a late goal with only ten minutes remaining. The tying goal was scored by Freshman Bryan Fuentes, after the game Fuentes was awarded man of the match for scoring the big goal. It was also Fuentes’ first goal of the season.

“The goal I had against West Potomac kept our streak alive and I can’t thank anyone but God and the support from all of my teammates,” said Fuentes. “We just need to keep focused and our heads up during practice, then make every drop of sweat count against Thomas Jefferson.”

The boys would love to remain undefeated for the season, but will has some tough challenges late in the season against Lake Braddock and  Mt. Vernon.

The team will play away against the Thomas Jefferson Colonials this Thursday. Last season, this game was cancelled due to the weather conditions, so many of the athletes have never played the Colonials.

“We don’t have much time to prepare for Thomas Jefferson but, we have a few practices, so we have to make great use of it,” Parraga said.  

The success of this team can be credited to the improvements that many of the players have made from last season. Many of the players play on other teams outside of Annandale so they can be in shape and ready for the high school season.

“I think I’ve improved on my positioning when we were attacking to create a better chance of scoring goals and winning games,” Parraga said.

With only three games left in the season, the team will be playing away at Thomas Jefferson, Mt. Vernon, and Lake Braddock.
