On Wednesday, September 4, the boys’ soccer team did not kick off the 2019 season as it hoped, as the Knights fell in the final minute to North Hunterdon by a score of 1-0.
Sophomore goalie Alex Borto had a strong day between the posts, recording 12 saves before letting up the lone goal of the game with 55 seconds left to play.
While it was a tough loss, the Knights refused to let any disappointment carry over to their next game against Princeton High School on Saturday, September 7. It was a completely different game for Gill, as the Knights scored early and often to defeat the Tigers, 7-3.
Micaah Garnette ’21 led the offensive explosion, as he recorded four goals and two assists. Jordan Canica ’21 also had a great day for GSB, as he tallied two goals and two assists. Adam Berrocal ’21 contributed two assists, and Gavin Scavino ‘22 rounded out the scoring with a goal for Gill.
“I was very pleased with the boys’ positive response to a tough loss,” said Head Coach Tony Bednarsky. “The offense really came together and erupted for those seven goals. It was even more impressive because Princeton Day is a great program, and they have never surrendered more than even four goals, so I am very proud of our players.”
