Boys Junior Varsity Soccer, Boys Varsity Soccer · Riley boys advanced to sectional final

The Riley Boys moved into the sectional final with a convincing win over their town rivals John Adams.  Christian Santa opened the scoring in the 7th minute with a left footed shot that beat the rushing keeper.  When Adams tied the game the Wildcats responded when Luis Morales ran off of a Marco Alvarez’s header and booted the ball into the top of the net. Up 2-1, the Wildcats pushed for more. Alvarez took the ball from midfield dribbled past several opponents then found space at the top of the box and slammed home a left footed shot. The stunned Eagles were never able to come back.  The defensive line led by Senior Brandon Santa held firm and the team saw the game out.  Wildcats advance to the final on Saturday at Penn.  They will take on the Kingsmen at 7 pm.
