On Monday, September 12th, the Gateway Boys JV came to Hopkins. In past seasons this would be a great game, and this game was no different. For much of the first half Gateway was on the offensive. However, a combination of a strong Hopkins defense and great goalkeeping by John Jacques prevented Gateway from scoring. About midway through the first half Hopkins had an offensive break, the first of the game, and resulted in a goal by Chad Sanderson. For much of the second half the ball was going back and forth with missed opportunities by both teams. With Gateway threatening late in the second half the Hopkins defense still held strong until the final whistle. Chad Sanderson’s goal in the first half would end up being the difference in this game. Hopkins won 1-0.
