The varsity boys’ soccer team lost 1-3 to league rival King’s Academy yesterday at 3:30 p.m on Davis Field in the last game of the season on their senior night.

Seven seniors, captain Oisin Coveney, Ryan Fernandes, Edward Sheu, Arthur Wolff Goldstein, Omar Hamade, Sanil Rajput and Connor O’Neill, were celebrated.

King’s Academy scored all three of their goals in the first half while Sparsh Chauhan (10) scored Harker’s goal in the second half.

“In the first half, we were a bit tired; we didn’t really get into the game.” Eric Tran (10) said. “But in the second half after the team talked about things, we got into it and started fighting for it.”

Kedar Gupta (11) commented on the team’s performance in the game.

“I thought we played alright. It was a good last game of the season,” he said. “We got a lot of seniors playing. It was nice to see everyone on the field. Overall, I think it was a good game as a team.”

Harker’s opponent, King’s Academy, is one of Harker’s rival teams this season.

“Our first game against them we were doing well in the first half, but they beat us in the second half which motivated us to push, even though we didn’t make it to the playoffs.” Joseph Krackeler (11) said. “We wanted a chance to ruin their score a little bit as we go into this game. We played pretty hard; hopefully next year we will beat them.”

Omar Hamade (12) reflected on the season and the team’s prospects next year.

“This season was much different from any other season because the majority of the team was freshman and sophomore, so we were on the younger, less experienced end,” he said. “A lot of them haven’t played varsity before. It was a good experience playing with these younger guys being a role model. Even though we didn’t get the record we wanted to qualify for CCS and it wasn’t as good as the records in the past, I feel like we built a solid foundation for the next couple of years.”

The team ends the season with a 6-7-1 league record.
