Brimmer with the Shut Out

The varsity boys soccer team picked up momentum with a 5 - 0 win over Chapel Hill Chauncey Hall on Friday at the Mt. Ida field. The pace and flow of the game were controlled by the Gators for the whole match. The first goal was scored by Charlie Marconi ’20, when he finished from close range after the CHCH keeper parried a shot from Tristan Durocher ‘21 into his path. Charlie then earned an assist on the second goal, when he crossed the ball to the back post area where rookie Owen Williams ‘23 was waiting. Owen timed the ball perfectly and hit a powerful shot on the half volley; a beautiful goal to open his tally for the varsity team. The Gators added their third goal just before the halftime break. Olivier Khorasani ’20 hit a great shot from range, but the ball hit the post rebounding clear of the goal. Sevak Glorikian ’23, however, continued his run and was able to drive the ball home from the edge of the six yard box. 
About fifteen minutes into the second half, Tristan made a great strafing run across the CHCH defensive line, and after drawing two defenders in, he laid the ball off to his right where Asher Jaeckel ’22 was open. Asher sent a strong shot into the top corner of the goal from just inside the eighteen for his debut goal for the varsity team. Five minutes from the final whistle, Tristan was finally rewarded with a goal after spending the afternoon seemingly involved in almost all of the offense. Theo Pellman earned the assist from a nice through ball that put Tristan one-on-one with the keeper. As well as the debut goals for Owen and Asher, George Purdy also earned a first. With the 5 - 0 win, he earns his first career shutout for the varsity team.
The Gators are back in action Monday when they travel to the North Shore to take on Landmark.
