The OVS boys soccer squad showed a lot of heart Wednesday in its CIF playoff game against Vasquez High, losing 2-0 in a hard-fought contest on the road.
The match — the first-ever CIF playoff game for an OVS boys soccer team — showcased strong defensive efforts from juniors Gabe Weisiger (L17) and Andrew Thacher (L17), as well as seniors Sebastian Wayman-Dalo (L16) and Corbin Muller.
Junior goalie and co-captain Adam Pepper-Macias (L17) had several great saves and was working hard for the entirety of the game, displaying his best performance of the season. In fact, the game was 1-0 late into the contest, with Vasquez scoring a second security goal in the final minutes.
For seniors Corbin and Sebastian, this was their last soccer game of their high school careers. But for the rest of the team, they are ready to get back on the field next year.
“This year, we are a great team but we are young and squirrelly,” said Adam. “With another year of practice under our belts, we will see a very strong squad next year. I am very excited to see our progress next season.”
