Pelham boys soccer loses 2-1 to Edgemont on senior night


Pelham boys varsity soccer lost in a nail-biter on their senior night Friday against Edgemont High School. Close all the way through the final minutes, Edgemont was able to beat the Pelicans with a final score of 2-1.

The night began with a ceremony honoring the seniors for their commitment to and last year of playing for Pelham. The list of seniors includes (* indicates captain) Hudson Blackburn, Kyle Chang, Russell Eustace, Liam Gimigliano, Kristian Howell*, Ryan Lacilla, Sebastian Levy*, Connor Normoyle, Bryan Munoz, Nolan Proffitt, Jackson Scarlett* and David Valencia.

The Pelicans began the game rolling with an early free-kick goal by Levy in the eighth minute. This goal marked his ninth set-piece score of the season, tallying his total goal count to 10. However, Edgemont pocketed two goals on the counterattack in the 15th and 18th minute, respectively. Edgemont led the Pelicans 2-1 heading into the second half. The game continued to be back-and-forth flashing chances and runs by both teams. In the 74th minute of the game, the Pelicans earned a penalty shot and sent Levy to the box. With a highlight save by the Edgemont goalkeeper, the threat was neutralized and Edgemont finished victorious.

Though a brutal defeat for the Pelicans, they have still earned a playoff spot with their regular season record of 7-8-1. The boys move onto Sleepy Hollow in round one of the playoffs, both date and time TBD.
