Sophomore The Hornets started conference play on Tuesday against Addison Trail. An early mistake put the hornets behind 0-1 to begin the game. However, they battled through the first half, defending many of Addison Trail’s attacks. Great defensive plays were made by Rayhan Shah and Roberto Mendoza to protect our goal. Kareem Chahin and Andres Cortes keep the midfield under control for most of the half and tried to generate passes to our offensive players to create chances on goal. The end of the first half and beginning of the second half were not great for the hornets. One great defensive play was made by Ahmed Adnan to save a goal. Lukas Isberg helped out the team and played defense when multiple players from our starting backline were injured. The highlight of the game was by Kareem Chahin who played an excellent thru ball to Omar Kayyat who used his speed to create a breakaway and scored our only goal of the half. The Hornets lost 1-7. The Hornets will regroup this week at practice, hopefully heal our injuries, and prepare for Proviso East next week.
