KBH9I Varsity Soccer The

KBH9I Varsity Soccer The varsity soccer team had a slow start this year but improvement came with each game. By the end of the season the team was playing good, controlled soccer. The teams 6-8-1 record obscures its good points. Because the squad was completely new, it took hard work and a lot of getting used to each other before they could play well. High points of the season were the homecoming game in which the Rams shocked themselves and their opponents by beating Morristown Beard, a team seeded far ahead of the Rams, and the final game in which the Rams upset Montclair Kimberly, also seeded higher. This year’s team was led by Alex Helander and Dave Lombardi, the leading goal scorer and the outstanding defensive player, respectively. Coach Freeman summarizes the season, "It was a totally new squad from last year. We did a lot of developing in a lot of areas. We developed some of goals-better defense and toward the end of the season, better offenses. We improved with work and began to control the ball which was evident in the games against Metuchen High School and Montclair-Kimberly. This success came directly from the efforts of the team members.” V A K 3 I I I l l i I I V-' IVIVJI 1 1 , 1 i w i -i I I ' v n . Russ, J. Friedlander, D. Lombardi, A. Helander, P. Prasser, G.
