The Hamilton Huskies Varsity Boys Soccer Team are Regional Champs

Drew Boyd

The Hamilton Huskies boys soccer team became regional champs for the first time in more than five years. Thanks to the incredible closure of the season, these boys are on fire. Hamilton closed out the season with an incredible eight wins in a row. 

In early February, the team won all three of their games. Their first game was not much competition. They played the Mountain Pointe Pride and won nine to one. The goals were spread throughout the team; but the team leader was without a doubt Vincent Acosta. He had three goals and a single assist. The next important name in the box score is Luke Schaefer who earned two goals and a pair of assists. The other four goals were scored by Jackson Rodriguez, Cade Williams, Gilberto Rivera and Xavier Lawmaster. 

Hamilton had their way with the first team they played, and they used the momentum from that game to carry them to a win against Perry in the next. This win was significant considering that Perry is one of the better teams the Huskies have played. Hamilton was fighting and clawing the whole game and it paid off; they took the win two to zero. Schaefer was able to score again, and Alejandro Acevedo ended up punching the other one in. 

Going into the last regular season game, Hamilton was faced with a matchup against Brophy. The Huskies wanted to close the regular season book on a win, and they did just that. The boys varsity game squeaked out the last win by the skin of their teeth. Hamilton won the game three to two. These goals were scored by Acosta who had two, and Rivera who cashed in once. The Huskies closed out the season on an eight game win streak and became regional champions for the first time in just over five years. 

The Boys Varsity Soccer Team has reached an outstanding record of 9-2-1. They are now gearing up for playoffs in hopes of being able to bring a state championship home to the Huskies.
