They ended the first half with a score of 3-0.

“I think it went as well as it could have, our forwards finished well,” said Evan Leedeman, 20.

The team is now preparing for their upcoming game against Hartnell, a challenging opponent.

“We want to continue the momentum and keep doing what we’ve been doing,” said Sean

“They’re within our conference and our league,” said Coach Boheet Sen.

“Going in there has never been easy and we don’t expect it to be this time either,” Sen added.

To prepare for the next game, DeLane said that they need to “stay focused, be mentally tuned in and sharp, and make sure we have a great training session.”

Despite being undefeated so far, it is important to remain strong and maintain the same level of preparation.

“We just need to stay focused, we can’t lose our heads just because we’ve had a few wins,” Leedman said.

“We should treat every game like it’s our final, hopefully we remain undefeated,” added Abuabed, who just returned from playing for the Jordan national soccer team.

“I think they have a great coach, so far they’re doing great,” said Omar Owad, 19, who was there to support his friend and former school.

“They were better than the other team.”
