Only having one game left before the playoffs begin on May 1, the South Pointe varsity soccer team has its eyes set on Chester varsity. They are set to play tonight at Chester’s field at 7 p.m.

The last game that the varsity team played was a rematch against Lancaster at the Bruins home field last Friday, April 20.

Midfielder Max Gonzalez says that it was a hard fought match that they managed to come out on top of. South Pointe won with a score of 2-1, with scores coming from both BT Potter and Scott Robinson.

“They couldn’t stop us when we would attack,” Potter says. He recalls that Lancaster would try to double team him, leaving Robinson open to attack the goal.

Potter, who was named Region Player of the Year this week,  feels somewhat confident entering the playoffs soon, especially since South Pointe has already clinched the No. 1 seed in their region. South Pointe sits currently with a region record of 9-1 and an overall record of 11-6. He thinks that South Pointe will be fine in the first round, but it will get harder in the upcoming rounds.

Even though the playoffs are close, South Pointe still has all eyes on the game tonight against Chester.
