Boys' Varsity Soccer edges Westtown in Thriller

Last Tuesday was Senior Day for the George School Boys' Varsity Soccer Team.  The parents of our seniors did a wonderful job of making sure it was a memorable occasion.  They made banners and provided each Sr. player with a stick with the player's photo attached.  Each player was introduced along with their parents, advisor, or a GS community member.  Photos were taken and then it was time to renew the George School vs Westtown rivalry game.  The game also had playoff seating implications with the winner hosting the FSL Semi-final on 10/27/21.

Westtown pulled ahead after an unfortunate George School own-goal during the first half.  The score was 1-0 Westtown at halftime.  After the break, George School's Bryce Flowers scored to tie it assisted by GS Captain, Bill Becker.  A few minutes later it was the same combination giving George School the 2-1 lead.  It looked as though the lead would hold up until Westtown scored near the end of regulation time.  In overtime, Bryce Flowers and Bill Becker combined once again to give George School the 3-2 lead.  This time, George School held onto the lead until the final whistle.  

It was a true team effort on a special day for our seniors.  Sr. Goalkeeper, Dash Atwood played well and got the win in goal for GS. Sr. Basem Baadarani-Feeney and his brother Safi did an excellent job as wing-defenders. Bill Becker provided all three assists and was a strong midfield presence.  Tale Efe-Akhigbe provided energy as a substitute forward.  Andrew Miller had another strong game upfront.  Ryan Mitchell and Denys Sharpylo did a great job as central defenders. Owen Yerkes and Gavin Steiner provided depth on the forward line.  The seniors were surely helped by excellent play from underclassmen. Tyler Flowers did a stellar job in midfield, as did Emilio Pellegrini, and Drew Mirarchi.  Freshman, Sam Tchoumandrine also contributed some quality minutes as did Jr. Justin Liu.  Unfortunately, a few players did not get into the game but they remained positive and supportive throughout the game.

With the win, George School pushed their season record to 10-3-1, (7-1 FSL).  George School will host Westtown again this Wednesday at 3 PM with a trip to the FSL finals on the line.
