Senior night 2016, December 20. A warm wind had moved in to St Auggie while the rest of country was experiencing freezing temperatures. The boys were primed and ready to work on their home turf against long-time rivals, Pedro Menendez High School. The JV team had already sparked a fire with their own 2-1 win earlier in the evening. Then the varsity teams took the field.
We took an early lead with a goal and Menendez returned with one of their own. After many attempts on both sides, we finally landed two more goals in the second half to win the game 3-1. The fans were super excited – Christmas came early this year!
