The White Mountain School hosted the Sant Bani soccer team in a hard-fought nail-biter on Saturday. Sant Bani found themselves quickly down 2-0 on back-to-back White Mountain goals in the 9th and 10th minutes by Chen Chen Zhou and Darvis Borges. Three minutes later, Sant Bani co-captain Harrison Evans got his team back to within a goal, scoring on an indirect kick deflected off a White Mountain defender.
Seven minutes into the second half Evans again found the back of the net, this time on a feed pass from fellow senior Caio Thielen. Both teams, playing with only three subs, were denied further chances with great goalkeeping and gutsy defense, each squad exhausted by the final whistle. Sant Bani will be logging some significant miles in the coming week, visiting Dublin School, Kimball Union Academy and Vermont Academy. Coach Todd Schongalla's advice to his team: "Get some rest and keep up with your homework."
