The Foothill varsity boys’ soccer team defeated the Grace Brethren Lancers with a final score of 2-0 on Monday.

“This game was completely dominated by our varsity boys,” said Varsity Coach Andreas Wedderien.

“Ball distribution and movement of the ball was the best I [have] seen all season. The boys worked for each other and the defense was anchored.”

Wedderien mentioned that junior Cristian Rodriguez and freshman Mateo Carrillo had an outstanding performance on defense.

Sophomore Jared Rodriguez also had a “great performance” in goal where he “properly handled” the few shots taken on goal by the Lancers.

Freshman Aidan Wedderien made a “beautiful weighted pass” to junior Andres Coronel who sunk the soccer ball in the goal in the first half. The second goal was scored in the 20th minute of the second half after senior Justin Redemann “crowned his performance with a solo run in which he went through [four] Lancer defenders only to pass off the ball to freshman David Hill for an easy goal,” Coach Wedderien said.

Redemann was Coach Wedderien’s “player of the game” because of the way he “worked [tirelessly] the entire game” on both offense and defense.

Although this win improved the Dragons’ league record to six wins, five losses, and their overall record to eight wins and eight losses, Coach Wedderien still would like this team to improve their consistency.

“We completely dominated this team […] If we do it to this team, we should do it to others as well. Concentration, fitness and mental strength [will] be the key to our success.”
