Churchill Bulldogs defeat Kennedy Cavaliers in soccer game, 4-1

  • Published in Sports

Churchill Bulldogs logoPOTOMAC – The home team Churchill Bulldogs defeated the visiting Kennedy Cavaliers 4-1 in boys varsity soccer Friday evening.

The scoring began early in the first half as the Bulldogs, playing at home, found themselves with a 3-0 lead before halftime. The Cavaliers pushed forward early in the second but were able to find the net only once before a controversial penalty kick solidified the Bulldogs’ victory.

Churchill began by scoring after just 45 seconds. Junior winger Tamino Brown found himself unmarked to slot in a goal, leaving Kennedy goalkeeper Rexford Frimpong with no time to react.

Churchill's early momentum paid off as senior forward Darius Siahpoosh found the net twice in twelve minutes to triple the score.

"If you look at my goals, they're all from five yards away because my teammates are sending me up," Shiapush said. "I appreciate my teammates, always."

BETHESDA – A Springbrook High School boys relay team replaced a 40-year-old school record as well as the meet record while other county athletes beat their personal best times during day one of the Viking Invitational Friday.

The Springbrook boys team finished first in the 4x100m relay Elite with a time of 42.83 seconds, a new school record, at the meet at Walter Johnson High School, hosted by WJ and Walt Whitman High.

John F. Kennedy’s team finished second in the boys 4x100m relay with a time of 43.03 seconds, followed by Richard Montgomery’s team earning a 44.03 second-time, finishing in third place.

Springbrook Blue Devils head coach Bryan Steele said the previous automatically-timed school record was from 2016, 43.74 seconds. However, the school record board on the wall at Springbrook indicated a relay team finished the 4x100m relay in 43 seconds flat in 1977, and the Blue Devils beat that time Friday.

SILVER SPRING—The Bengal Tiger may be endangered in the wild, but the Blake Bengals faced little danger as they carried a lead for the entire match against the Kennedy Cavaliers in a 14-4 win.

It was a resounding victory for a Bengal team that dominated the entire match and took advantage of a porous Cavalier defense. It used its speedy breakaways to get past defenders and either shoot from up close or pass to a teammate up close to cherry-pick.

However, the Bengals faced one threat: Kennedy junior midfielder Lina Randrianarivelo, as she ran through defenders to complete her hat trick.
