The game was an intense match with high energy from the seniors on the team, and after a couple close calls, the team managed to take home a win. 

Gael Cisneros-Botello (12) highlights the preparation they needed in order to succeed in Tuesday’s game. 

“I prepared for this game by watching film with my team and the coaching staff, and by preparing mentally to hopefully succeed in our matches. I am very happy about us getting the win, although I do think my team could have played better, but I will say I’m proud of my boys” he says.

Next, Mario Narravete (11) describes his recollection of the game, detailing the overall energy he felt during the match. 

“The way I felt throughout the match was anxious, so many of our guys were just as eager to win because many of them are seniors. There was so much pressure and intensity during the game that gave the team the motivation to win” he says.

Narravete also pinpoints his memory of the winning shot of the game. 

“A moment in particular was the overtime penalties where we scored the game winning goal where the whole team crowded Rogaddi to celebrate” he says. 

When asked about Narravete’s goals as a team for the next season, he places importance on remembering to persevere. 

“I plan on leading by motivating and encouraging the team to keep their head up to any sort of adversity we might face,” he states.
