With hopes high, the JCC of Bayonne Jr. Division Indoor Soccer program got underway as the Knights and Wizards took to the court to launch the 2017 season. Battling to a scoreless tie for over ten minutes both squads tried to gain their bearings. With all their resources dedicated to defense, the Knights started off strong as Nathan Caballero, Ezekiel Lupainez, Vedant Gopalan, and the Asouti brothers Amir and Louai held down the fort. As the game progressed, the Wizards’ offense got more aggressive and began to zero in as there quick goals by Christian Benson, Amy Gabreal, and David Matos put the Wizards up 3-0. Hoping to turn the side, the Knights sent Alina Danelyants and Amir Asouti on the attack but Sebastian Echeberry, Ereny Gabreal, and Gabriela Mendoza dug in to bolster the Wizards’ defensive ranks. Controlling both ends of the court, the Wizards began to rack up goals as David Matos (1 goal), Amy Gabreal (2 goals), and Christian Benson (1 goal) chipped in the secure the Wizards 7-0 opening day victory.
