The 2022 Fall Season is off to a flying start for the 2013 Boys Foxes as they went undefeated in the Central League Soccer Festival group stage. The team’s aggressive, pressing style led by Andy Bubb and Prasad Soni up top often overwhelmed opponents, producing numerous chances which were finished off by center midfielders Joel Larson (who scored two goals) and Sawyer Hogarth. Wing backs Joey DiBona, Jonah Peltzman, and Penn Hoy played high up the field, offering consistent service to our attacking players while effectively bottling up the opponent’s counter attacks. When our opponents did manage to break through, sweepers Tariq Yue and Mac Willsie, supported by our rotating stable of goalies – Simon Prinbeck, Luca Frattaroli, and Josh Henderson – consistently snuffed out the danger. “While the results were certainly welcome,” says Coach Steve DiBona, “we were most proud of the sportsmanship, effort, and grit displayed by the boys in very hot conditions. This was a great way to start off the season.”
Also on the field this weekend, the 2014 Boys Foxes played three games in the CLS Tournament. “Our boys played hard in their first official matches,” says Coach Megan Slootmaker. “They had no subs for three games, and they got better each game.”
The regular season for the Swarthmore Soccer Club Foxes begins Saturday, September 10th. Home games are played at Henderson Field, Rutgers Main Field, and Rutgers Side Field. Town Soccer, Petite Soccer, and Intramural Soccer also rev up shortly after Labor Day. Go Foxes!
