WE ARE THE CHAMPS!!! That is right. Our Jr. Boys' soccer team traveled yesterday to the Hangar and played their championship game against a very technical team Newman. The team worked hard and opened the scoring in the first half with Raemon Mendoza sliding the ball in the corner from a nice cross by Reggie Amankwa. Our boys tried to move ahead by two goals but were not lucky so Newman bounced back to tie the game before the first half was over. In the second half, Dante had some chances to seal the victory but could not score the go ahead goal. Both teams were deadlock at one goal apiece and both teams had to play sudden death for the victory. Dante stormed out in the first extra 10 min. half and pulled away with another goal by Raemon Mendoza. As soon as the referee blew his whistle the coaches new it was game over and Dante won their 5th T.D.C.A.A. championship in seven years. The coaches Aldea, Turco, Festa, Matitchik and assistant Martinuzzi would like to congratulate the entire team for a fantastic season. Not only did they come second in the St. Jean de Brebuef tournament they also brought home the T.D.C.A.A. banner. Each player also received a medal for their efforts. If you see the players in the hall, do congratulate them for an outstanding season.
