Tuesday’s match was the first loss for State High Boys Soccer team this season.

Defender Dungan Adams said, “Overall our team played pretty well and had a couple of good chances to score. We played well defensively and I had a bunch of defensive headers.”

Scott Morelli, another defender, thought the best moment during the game was when his headed a ball over the top of the defense for the attacks to run to. “I think individually I didn’t play that great and neither did most of team, but we should beat them [Cumberland Valley] next time we play them.”

“We have had a good start to the season,” said junior Sean Kelleher, who plays as both a defender and a midfielder on the team. “This was the first game we lost.”
