Back-to-back wins for Sant Bani soccer

After a string of tough losses earlier in the month, the Sant Bani soccer team achieved its second straight win on Saturday, outscoring Kimball Union Academy's JV3 team 7-1. The 3-0 halftime lead gave Sant Bani coach Todd Schongalla some flexibility with his younger players, inserting freshman Sam McLaughlin into the net. "Sam will likely be our #1 keeper next season and the more playing time we can give him now, the better." Schongalla also praised the defensive work of freshman defender Lindsey Tarbin and sophomore midfielder Connor Lemay, who had a couple of great shots on goal and an assist in the second half. Sant Bani senior Harrison Evans took credit for four goals on the afternoon; rounding out the scoring were juniors Mohamed Sapry and Ander Trevino Aizpurua and senior midfielder Caio Thielen. KUA denied Sant Bani's attempt for their second shutout of the season with a late goal in the 76th minute. Sant Bani travels on Wednesday, playing Vermont Academy for the first time. San Bani's season record is now 6-4-1.
