The Hills East Boys Varsity Soccer team is ending league play on quite the positive note. Coach Carcone and his talented captains Greg Schebece, Sam Steinberg, and Dan Serpe led the team to 10 wins, 2 ties, and only one loss so far in the 2016 season. With the team having made it into the playoffs already, they are excited to compete against better teams
and showcase their skill.
Sam Steinberg is leading the team in points with 9 goals and 8 assists. Dan Serpe (5 goals, 4 assists) and Ethan Koval (4 goals, 2 assists) have also been big contributors. The defense, led by Greg Schebece and goalie Jordan Lafauci, has had 8 shutouts this season. Overall, the T-Birds are currently ranked #1 in the county, #2 in the state, and #15 in the country.
Captain Sam Steinberg is very enthusiastic and proud of his team. After speaking to him about the season, he said, “We really came to play this season. The hunger to win has been shown since the first day of preseason, and every single kid on the team has made their contribution. More importantly, our record reflects that. Hopefully, we can keep this run going and continue focusing on one goal at a time.” Coach Carcone is also impressed with his team and said, “It’s an amazing group of young men who work really really hard. They care for each other, they care for the shirt they play for, and I see great things in the future.”
The Varsity Soccer team has impressed the school with their great playing this season. Good luck to the boys for the rest of the season. Bring home a victory for HSE!
