Sant Bani soccer dealt first defeat of the season

The Sant Bani soccer team had its first loss of the season on Monday to Cardigan Mountain School. "Cardigan brought their best players and have a really strong soccer program," said Sant Bani coach Todd Schongalla. "We were over-matched on both ends of the field."

Down 3-0 at the half, Sant Bani came back with two quick goals, one unassisted by junior Mohamed Sapry and another from a  well-executed corner kick/pass from Javin deMello-Folsom to Harrison Evans, but Cardigan closed the door thereafter and went home with the 4-2 victory.

Sant Bani travels for a rematch with the New Hampton JVA's on Wednesday afternoon.
