Rome boys’ soccer team wraps up 2nd in region
Team effort and some help from younger players provided the Rome boys’ soccer team with a clutch 3-1 win on the road Friday night against Region 7-5A foe Kell.
Eduardo Zavala finished with goals for the Wolves, while Rhadriq Turner had one, and Henry Ramirez and Andreas Surdh both recorded an assist.
Keeper Grant Chambers had six saves, and help in the midfield came from Carlos Jimenez, Cooper Williams, Cade Graham, Luciano Hasko, Sergio Vazquez, Mutsa Nyumaranga and Cristian Fonseca.
“I was extremely proud of the effort of the younger players stepping up tonight. I think in the long run it will give us much needed depth,” Rome coach Chris Cochran said, adding that they had five starters injured.
Rome freshman Mae Pierce once again stepped up for the Lady Wolves’ soccer team Friday evening, scoring all three Rome goals in a 3-1 defeat of Kell on the road.
The win ensures Rome (8-6-2, 7-1 7-5A) will finish the regular season no lower than second in the Region 7-5A standings.
