The Grade 7 ASL Black team started out in September as a group of individual soccer players, but quickly came together as a team in no time at all. “We each had our own ambitions when we started the season,” said Naveer Asnani, one of the grade 7 players. “But after our first game, we started playing as a team.”
Asnani recalled the match against ACS Cobham as very awakening. “That game made us realize that if we were going to win, we needed to play as a team.”
Coach Sergio Pimentel said he is proud of the way the team plays and fights in every game. The Black Team’s season record was 2 wins and 3 losses as of October 25. ASL’s boys brought home a major victory on September 29 against ACS Egham, winning 3-0. The biggest improvement, according to Coach Pimentel, is the way the boys know how to play their positions. “The biggest challenge they face is teams that are bigger than us in size,” he added. The Black Team is looking forward to the LSSA tournament on November 5.
