With great anticipation of the 2019 Arundel JV Boys Soccer campaign fresh on their minds, The Arundel Boys JV Soccer team boarded their team bus for their business trip to the sun drenched grounds of the host Bulldogs of Southern High School.
As the Wildcats took to the pitch for their opening debut an exuberant energy was abundant among “The Boys” and with the shrill of the starting whistle, their journey had begun!
With the starting possession on the boots of the Wildcats, their opening statement was assertive as well as attacking. Wasting no time with in the possession, the Wildcats had put the Bulldogs on their back heels quickly as Michael Poulakos took a throw-in from the right flank to a determined Ben Keville who split two Southern defenders to find near post netting and the Wildcats first goal of the season!
On the ensuing kick-off, the Bulldogs possessed the ball briefly, but an errant pass from the outside back to the goal keeper found a pressuring Ben Keville all alone with the Bulldogs net minder. Keville would make short work of his 1v1 by fainting the sliding goaltender and netting his second goal on the day unassisted!
With the advantage in the Wildcats favor, their persistent pressure on the Bulldogs defense would find Jack Mutziger taking advantage of a throw-in over the top of the Southern defense and into the 18 yard box. The Southern goal keeper reacted to the through ball into his box by mishandling the save due to the introduction of Jacob Rarig. Refusing to be denied the second ball opportunity, Rarig would swiftly give the ol “Texas Toe-Poke” securing the goal and the Wildcats lead to 3.
As play resumed, Michael Seelhorst would contribute to the scoring drive as he stole a pass from the Southern transition, dribbled the left flank giving a beautifully crossed ball into the box to the on-coming Ryan Modica who would make good on his opportunity and scored the Wildcats 4th goal of the match and concluding an outstanding first half!
With the second stanza set and the Wildcats looking to complete the task at hand, “The Boys” continued their relentless attacking ways and aggressive defense. The persistence to frustrate the Southern attack would lead to Ben Keville earning his 3rd goal of the match while being assisted from Michael Seelhorst who earnd his 2nd assist of the match. The closing moments would give way to Brett Wilkins assisting Drew Gentile for the final tally leaving the Wildcats with 6 goals on the day and 5 assist. Alenjandro Monroy and Anthony Bond helped the defensive efforts by recording a clean sheet to boot!
