Going into the game with a 4-0 start to the season, Jesuit faced off against promising opponent West Campus at home on Monday afternoon. In the 10th minute, a loose ball got past the Jesuit keeper and came onto a stand-off between a W.C. forward and a Jesuit defender. The forward, named Nick Cordero, had good momentum and easily got it around the backside of the defender and sunk one into the back of the net. This was the first goal that Jesuit had conceded through all their games so far. The home team had quite a weak showing in the first half, with few connected passes, many dangerous balls in the middle of the pitch, and only a few shots at goal.
Half Jesuit 0-1 West Campus
Early in the second half, Elijah Beverley accelerated up the field and despite a handful of defenders surrounding him, pinpointed Chris Meyers, who used the momentum of the oncoming ball to loft it straight-on into the high ceiling of the net. This was in the 50th minute. Only 4 minutes later Luke Bone got some space in a dangerous spot on the West Campus side of the pitch and hit a long distance shot across the goal into the right corner. In the 66th minute Christian Honig got up the left side of the field and quickly passed it off to Beverley who worked his way into the box and dropped it off to Jake L’Ecuyer who, right in front of the goal, gave it a strong finish past the keeper. Then in the 77th minute, Dono Carrillo from the midfield hit a perfect through ball, probably the best of the season thus far, right to Chris Meyers. That was all Chris needed, and he cracked a left-footed shot high into the left side of the goal. The game ended 4-1 to Jesuit.
