Soccer senior night is a success

Men’s soccer dominated the Colby-Sawyer Chargers this past Saturday in their senior game with a 3-0 victory.  

The Spartans had a few chances early in the game to go up with one ricocheting off the crossbar.  Not until the 41st minute, though, were they able to get their first goal.  A cross from Justin Hepburn found the head of Blake Hart who was able to finish.
“It felt real good,” Hart said of his goal.  “It’s been a while since I’ve scored my last goal. This was a great time to come out of my slump; this was a huge game.”
The next goal came shortly after when the chargers had an unfortunate handball in their box.  Dameon young crushed the ball with ease to put the Spartans up 2-0 before the end of the half.
Castleton started the second half strong.  In the 58th minute, Hepburn rifled a shot outside the 18 yard line to put his team up 3-0. Hepburn commented on his goal.
“I’ve been shooting more and more in the past few games,” he said. “I’ve been pretty unlucky on a lot of shots, but it feels good to finally get one in the back of the net.”  

He finished the game with a goal and assist.  

Coach O’Connor was happy with the way his team played.  

“It was great,” said O’Connor.  “Our ball movement and very unselfish [play] in everything we were doing just controlled the tempo of the game.”
The entire team was happy with the win.
“It was a complete team effort,” Hart said. “We were pumped from the start because it was senior night.  We just wanted to have a good one for the seniors.  Overall, we played one of our best games this season.”
