JUNIOR BOYS' SOCCER


With almost the full team and with an injured goalie, the Jr. Boys’ soccer team played their divisional playoff against a very stubborn Merton team. Failing behind in the middle first half 1-0 the Dante team had to regroup to make sure they would tie it before the end of the first half. With a corner kick awarded to Dante, Jordan Pereira and Andres Samaniego made sure that the cross would reach Merton’s goal and Cristian Rosario scored with a header to tie the game.  As soon as Dante tied it, the referee blew his whistle to indicate half time.

          In the second half, Dante was once again  awarded with another corner kick. This time Jordan Pereira chipped the ball into the box and Fabio Vilaca came across to head the ball giving Dante the lead 2-1. With approximately 4 minutes to play in the game, Dante held the score and won the game 2-1. The coaches Aldea, Matiitchik, and Turco would like to congratulate all the players for the fantastic win and especially Taivonte Lessey, who had to go in the net in the second half for our injured goalie. Make sure, if you see the players in the hall, that you congratulate them for the big win. The team will play against St. Basils in the Quarter Finals this Friday Oct. 26. The team players must listen to tomorrow’s announcement regarding the transportation to Basil for Friday’s game.

CASUAL DAY YEAR PASSES

DANTE!

Don't forget your $8.00 between Tuesday October 9th and Friday October 12th as Dante's Student Council will be selling Casual Day year passes during all lunches. Casual Days are days in which you will not have to wear your school uniform, provided that your everyday casual clothes are APPROPRIATE. Remember that if you don't have a year pass, you must buy a day pass for $2.00 every casual day. Keep in mind you have 7 casual days, so if you buy the year pass, you are entitled to save a total of $6.00 throughout the year. So don't forget it or you'll regret it!

Thank you!
The Student Council of Dante Alighieri Academy
