One game at a time

It has been an incredible week for the Quincy High School boy’s soccer team.

The Trojans played the Paradise Adventist Academy Cougars who came to the match 5-1 overall and 5-1 in league play. But that’s okay, because the mighty Trojans were 11-1 overall, 5-0 in their league and on a 7-game winning streak when the two teams met.

The result of the match-up was a win for the Trojans, 1-0. “It was the best we played so far this year with us having possession near 33 minutes in the first half,” said head soccer coach Mike Woodlee.

Sophomore Luis Santos scored the winning goal for the Trojans with an assist from junior Sein Yoacham. Goalie Cameron Dingel had five saves keeping the Cougars scoreless.

On Oct. 5, the Redding Lions came to Quincy and the result was another “win” for the Trojans who seem to be sweeping the league at this point. It hasn’t been as easy as it sounds for the Trojans. They have scraped for each win, struggling to put out their best when on the field. They are encouraged by their coach to dig deep.

In the third game of the week for the Trojans, they played the Squaw Valley Academy Bears on Oct. 6. The Bears were 1-3-1 in both league and overall play. The mighty Trojans won 3-2 in a close game.

That’s 14-1 for the Trojans overall and 8-0 in league the league. When asked about the winning streak, coach Woodlee said, “We are just playing one game at a time.”
