    V. Soccer Keeper On Strongest Team Ever

    By Daniel du Feu '14

    After our first twenty minutes of play, in our first game of the season, I knew that this was the strongest team I’ve ever been a part of at Palmer Trinity. Although we came out of the first game with a loss, we tied the next day to Westminster—in another tough game that our team, coaches, and fans know we should have won.

    From that point forward, we have played some of the best soccer I’ve seen. We finally found a starting line-up and started winning big. 8-2. 10-0. 4-1. 4-0. After working on finishing in practice, rather than just shooting, our team started scoring more goals and putting more balls in the back of the net.

    As the goalie for the team, I witness games from one of the best points of view. I get to watch play start in the defense, transition through the midfield, and finally celebrate when I see the ball hit net. Goalies sometimes worry about the defense, but my team gives me no reason to be that way. I would argue that we have the best defense in Dade County, and our low number of goals against us proves as much. We have depth in our defense, and even though we only start three defenders, we have five or six more-than-capable players ready to step up.

    Our midfield is one of our most exciting aspects. The way that Miguel Gonzales ’15 and Andres Casteñada ’16, and Keenan Rodrgiuez ‘15 work the ball to the outsides and keep possession in the midfield, is something that any coach would be proud of. Our outside midfielders, including Nick Moscoso ’14 and Miguel Gonzales ’15, make goal scoring runs that help change the game and win them.

    Although we did not have him for the first two games of our season, Alejandro Rodriguez Santilli ’14 is a key asset to our offense.  The footwork of Alejandro Martinez-Oletta ’14 and Claudio Wingartz 15’, and Daniel Gay-Betton’s ’14 also add strength and ability in the air, and defenders have trouble dealing with our forwards.

    We have a tough schedule, with our next games being Hillel and LaSalle, but we look forward to a challenging but successful season. When an experienced head coach like Scott du Feu tells the team, “This is the best soccer I’ve seen in my 20 years at Palmer,” we know that we are capable of being very successful in districts, regionals, and even states.
