Rochester soccer

After a great win against Team Intensity last week, we were right back at
it against the Scarlet Knights on their home field. Unfortunately, we were
dealing with some bumps and bruises that kept many of our starters
out against this highly talented team.
Playing on a regulation sized field with no substitutes against a team
that could field two teams makes the task even more daunting. As you know,
this doesn’t
deter us from going after it. We give our best effort and let the cards
fall where they do.

In the seventh minute of the game, the Knights strike first as they sent a
bullet to the back of the net after a beautiful pass from midfield to
their Captain
Striker. From there, they piled it on and ended the first half with a 3-0
lead.

During halftime, we had a brief meeting, made some tweaks, gave some
constructive feedback on how we can improve in this second half, and we
made some
realistic goals for the second half. Even though we were struggling, some
players were really stepping up on the field and it was great to see such
resilience
and perseverance from a few of our athletes when things weren’t going
right.

After a fluky knuckleball from outside the 18′ flew past Mikalo, we played
lights out Wildcat soccer. We had some amazing opportunities to score in
the second
half and even though we didn’t earn any goals on the scoreboard, we
definitely played much better and held them to just that fluke goal.

I have to tip my hat to Mr. Bode Aggas who literally played 80 minutes of
some of the hardest soccer I’ve seen in a very long time against a very
talented
group of athletes. He not only held the fort back on our side of the
field, but made some amazing runs on their side of the pitch. One of his
best
performances in his career. If there was a game ball to be given out, this
man truly deserved it!

Even though we walked away with another loss, we understand, these WNYCAA
games are just our training ground for our two most important tournaments
of the
year, our Homecoming and the most important one, the ESDAA Tournament. We
just need to keep everything in perspective.

Next week, we travel to Union Springs for a 5:00 game.

Final Score:
RSD: 0
Scarlet Knights: 4

Saves:

Malone (16)

Overall record: 1-3

LAGO  VISTA – The TSD   HS    Cross-Country    Team  traveled
northwest   to    Lago  Vista
High  School      to    race  on    a     hilly,      narrow,     and
challenging terrain     with  a     good  sizable
number      of    runners     in    each  race.
Once  again,      leading     the   Rangers     were  Anabelle    Weaver
and   Jordan      Leach in    the
Girls Varsity     5K    race. Both  ran   quite well, improving
on    their times from  the
previous    week, setting     season      records.    Anabelle
finished    in    22:51,      running     nearly      a
minute      faster      than  last  week. And   Jordan      Leach ran
her   race  in          28:05.9,    about 15
seocnds     faster      than  last  weeks time. Asia  Cruz, accepting
her   coach’s     challenge   of
competing         in    the   5K    race  ran   a
steady      pace, refused     to    walk, came  in    with  a
time  of
42:37.2,    which is    pretty      close to    her   PR    of
40:26 from  2018.
For   the   TSD   Boys, all   running     in    the   JV
Boys  5K,   when  the   temperatures     got   a     little
warmer,     making      race  conditions  even  tougher,    we
had   10    boys  running,    all
improving   on    their race  times,      but   two,  who
were  hampered    a     bit   by    having      twisted
their ankles      on    the   uneven      course      surfaces.   Arturo
Merchan,    sophomore,  a     new
runner      to    this  year’s      Ranger      cross-country    team, led
all   TSD   runners     with  a     time  of
24:20.2.    Brody Vukmonich   traded      places      on    the
course      with  Arturo,     both  pushing
one   another     to    do    their best, finished    behind
Arturo,     with  an    improved    time  from
last  week, coming      in    at    24:34.3.    Right behind
Brody,      cathing     up    fast  near  the   end,
passing     several     runners     before      crossing    the   finish      line,
almost      catching    Brody,      was
Zaccaria    Stein,      who   is    coming      back  to    race
form, came  in    with  a     time  of    24:35.0,
which was   a     4     and   half  minute      improvement
from  last  week.
The   TSD   JV    Girls ran   the   2-mile      race, Aishalay
Woodley     came  from  behind      to
overtake    her   sister’s    lead  when  the   finish
line  was   in    sight,      closing     in    with a      season
record      time  of          30:22.1.    AuBreyon    Woodley,
also  ran   a     good  race, creating    a     great
sister      rivalry,    came  in    with  an    improved
time  for   the   previous    week, 30:24.3.

random deafsports thoughts

is football a dirty word in some schools for
the deaf?

DeafDigest Sports editor was invited to give a
speech at the athletic banquet at New York
State School for the Deaf (Rome) in the late
eighties.

That school had a football team for years
until this sport was dropped in the late
seventies. They played against 6-man and
then 8-man teams in the upper New York
state region. Some seasons the school
fielded very strong teams.

Curious, DeafDigest Sports editor asked
around regarding the school’s football
history. No one was willing to talk
about it.

Never knew why.
