We beat Community Academy of Philadelphia (CAP) once again with the score of 3-2. Hazim Haroun scored two goals in first half and Nasir Ford made a game winner goal. But our real hero and player of the game goes to our eighth grader goalie, William Sepulveda. He made several amazing saves and kept us in game against CAP. Tomorrow, we will travel to St. Mary’s for ESDAA soccer tournament this weekend. (Contributed by Athletic Director Matt Bujak)

Marie Philip School went to Boston to play our last league game against Commonwealth School. We were tied 1-1 in the first half until Commonwealth found a way to score two more goals to lead 3-1 at halftime.

Commonwealth had plenty of substitutes while we didn't and were able to rotate throughout the game. We tried our best to get back into the game as we were down by two goals until they scored the last goal with three minutes left in the game. We played much better today than the last time when they defeated us 7-0. (Contributed by Head Coach Jason Cserny)

Cornerstone Christian came on to visit RSD and we started off with a really competitive game. The game was knotted at 3-2 when one of our marquee players got a muscle cramp. They quickly capitalized on this and scored another right before half.

At this time, the coaching staff was focused on this weekend and decided to hold back and rest our starters to prevent any other injuries that could jeopardize this weekend.

As a result, Cornerstone continued to play full force and went on to win 11-2 against RSD. (Contributed by Coach Scott Lipitz)

Goals: Gentzke 1, Coates 1

stmarysSt. Mary's 1 Christian Academy of Western New York 1

The Bison competed against CAWNY (Christian Academy of Western New York) yesterday to wrap up their regular season schedule. We had just played against our NFCAA foe last week in some mediocre conditions and lost 3-0. Needless to say, our boys were excited to match up against the Eagles on our field this time around.

CAWNY opened up the scoring in the first few minutes of the game with a penalty shot off of a hand ball by one of our defensive backs. Despite the mistake, the entire team was able to move past the error and stick to our game plan. Nick Barrus was able to finally get a head ball past the Eagles goalie off a beautiful cross from Isa Habeeb to tie the game. The goalie from CAWNY was probably the best keeper our team has faced all season and although we were able to get a few more scoring chances against him, we couldn’t score another goal. The good news is, our defense was also able to lock things down with the steady play of Tyler Mondo-Goodrich and Kassim Kassim. CAWNY was also not able to beat Christian Lawrence who had another solid game in goal. The final score was 1-1.

With that game being completed that the league records finalized that puts our team into the NFCAA playoffs for the second year in a row. Ironically, we play against the Eagles from CAWNY again next week Tuesday on our field to determine who will play for the championship.

That all said, our immediate focus turns to the ESDAA Division 2 soccer tournament this weekend being hosted by our school. The action begins at 11:00 a.m. this Friday when the Bison take on New York State School for the Deaf in the first match of pool play. (Contributed by Head Coach Bryan Booke)

Nick Barrus: 1 goal
Christian Lawrence: 10 saves

rochesterRochester 2 Hope Hall 2

In an effort to display good sportsmanship, RSD put on an Oscar worthy performance at Hope Hall. The coaching staff made some extremely tough challenges on how our team could score to keep the score competitive.

As coach, I was actually hoping that Hope Hall could pull off the win. With minutes dwindling down in the 4th quarter, and the score tied at 2-2, Hope Hall had several opportunities to pull away with the win. However, all their attempts on net were kicked directly to our goalie.

The game ended as a tie, 2-2. It was a great game for the fans, and a great learning experience for all involved. (Contributed by Coach Scott Lipitz)

We faced one of the toughest teams on our schedule in Central Christian Academy. ASD struggled in the first half falling behind 3-0. We played better in the second half but it was not enough. This afternoon, Cornerstone Christian will be another tough team we face. (Contributed by Head Coach Curt Hayward)

rhode-islandNew York State 6 Rhode Island 4

Rhode Island School for the Deaf Varsity Soccer Team left school early Friday morning to make the trip to Rome, N.Y. for the International Friendship Tournament. We were scheduled to play New York State School for the Deaf (NYSSD) at 2 P.M. and our team was looking forward to it as we finally got past the tough part of our schedule and were looking forward to playing teams more closer to our level, starting with NYSSD.

We got off to a quick start with a goal within the first two minutes by our star forward Timothy who weaved through the Trojans' defense with ease. We kept on pressing the ball inside Rome's half of the field but couldn't get more goals. Rome would utilize their two tall midfielders to push the ball past our defense twice and scored two times within three minutes to take a 2-1 lead. We were able to get one more goal minutes before halftime on a penalty kick so the halftime score was tied at 2-2.

Our Roosters came out of halftime fired up and were able to capitalize by scoring two quick goals within the first five minutes to build a 4-2 lead. There were still 30 minutes left to play, so we had to keep going. Fatigue eventually caught up to us and we weren't able to hold our lead as Rome once again scored two goals within minutes of each other to knot the game up. Within the last two minutes, Rome added two more goals to pull out with the win, 6-4. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

Rochester 4 Rhode Island 1

rhode-islandRhode Island - It was tough to move on from yesterday's setback but the coaches tried their best to get the players to be ready for this 10:30 A.M. game. Our players' minds weren't completely in it during the first half as we allowed Rochester to score three times in the first half to build a 3-0 lead coming into halftime.

The coaches fired up the players and got them to play the second half with more urgency and poise. We would give up one goal to Rochester before finally becoming more aggressive and we were able to penetrate Rochester's defense frequently while keeping the ball inside their half and had numerous opportunities to score, but were able to capitalize only once. We lost to Rochester by the final score of 4-1. This was a great test for us as we will play them once again this Friday at the ESDAA Division 2 Soccer Tournament.

Timothy Jallah: 1 goal
Jayden Elias: 1 assist
Juan Fernandes: 8 saves

rochesterRochester - We faced Rhode Island in the last game of the Friendship Tournament at Rome, N.Y. It was agreed upon to play 8 vs. 8 this game. We were very excited to see how this match would unfold as we knew we would see them next weekend for ESDAA.

RSD came out strong and was able to capitalize early. Courtney Gentzke had two goals in the first half with Bryn Huggins adding another to end the half 3-0.

In the second half, Issac Perez knocked in another Penalty kick. Rhode Island was able to score one goal before the final buzzer, ending the game at 4-1. (Contributed by Coach Scott Lipitz)

Goals: Gentzke 2, Huggins 1, Perez 1.
Assists: Walshvelo 2.

marie-philipMarie Philip 8 New York 5

Marie Philip School went on a long journey to New York School for the Deaf-Fanwood for homecoming. MPS made a great start as we quickly led 5-1 within 20 minutes during the first half. We've missed too many chances that really frustrated our team.

In the second half, MPS defensive line tried to stop one talented NYSD offensive player but he was too fast. We made a lot of mistakes in the back to give Fanwood more goals. Again, MPS offensive line kept missing more scoring opportunities that we could've scored more goals, however we managed to hang on the lead on the way to a victory.

rochesterMill Neck/Pennsylvania/Rochester 5 Team Canada 3

Team Rochester School for the Deaf (RSD) travelled to Rome to participate in their annual International Friendship Tournament. In our first game, we joined up with Millneck and Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (PSD) to take on the two Canadian Teams.

Team USA decided to split the half into two quarters. During the first "quarter," Millneck/PSD would play as a team against Team Canada, and RSD would play the last twenty minutes.

When it was RSD's opportunity to enter the game, we were down 2-1. RSD came out aggressive and hungry as always. Even though Team Canada had three highly talented players, we were a much more rounded team, allowing us to move the ball much better. As a result, we were able to quickly score on a free kick to tie the game 2-2. Late in the half, we were also afforded a penalty kick. Isaac Perez gave us a 3-2 lead into halftime.

As discussed, RSD was going to start on the field against Team Canada for the first twenty minutes. Our forward, Isaac Perez was able to capitalize on a deflected ball inside the box and find the back of the net. Also, with just a few minutes left for us on the field, we capitalized on another free kick. It was Bode Aggas who made a beautiful goal outside the 18' that found the far post corner.

Even though PSD/Millneck allowed one goal during their time, we built a big enough cushion to hang on to win 5-3 against Team Canada. It was a great match by all the American Teams. (Contributed by Coach Scott Lipitz)

Goals: Aggas 2, Perez 2.
