Boys’ Soccer Cuts Up the Competition


Senior Jack Giuffre cuts off an opponent.

The Boys’ Varsity Soccer team has put up a fighting effort this season despite having only 8 seniors and losing one of them to a torn ACL. The boys continue to train hard and keep their heads up as they have a young team that they hope to develop in the next couple of years.

After graduating 11 talented seniors last year, Coach Dan Hussy has stated his gratitude towards not only captains Owen MacKinnon and John Babbo, but to the rest of his outstanding seniors including Isaiah Curry, Ryan Dubanowich, Sam Patston, Beck Luthringshausen, Jack Giuffre and Max Barnett.

One standout, Sam Patson, has proven to be a force to reckon with this season as the team’s leading scorer. On the other hand, success from the underclassmen proves for a promising future, coming from freshman Jack Powers and sophomores Anders Luthringshausen and Ari Velliotis.

Through great effort the boys have battled it out in many close games this season, including a senior night win in penalty kicks against Marmion. Goalie Jacob Arquette made 13 impressive saves in this quest for victory. Penalty kicks for the win came from senior Beck Luthringhausen and junior Joe Sedaleck.

Despite much appreciated support from Friar Nation, the boys failed to pull off a win against cross-town rivals, OPRF. Another close game against top ranked in the CCL Ignatius ended in a 1-0 loss.

The boys began their playoff run Wednesday, October 17 against Farragut and came out victorious in an impressive 3-0 thanks to goals from Sophomore Anders Luthringshausen and Junior Teddy Hernandez. Junior Daniel Ballarin also had a solid performance with 2 assists. It was indubitably a combined effort in goal from Sophomore Jacob Arquette and Junior Marko Brajkovic in this shutout victory. We wish them the best of luck on the rest of their season!
