On Saturday, October 15th, the Hopkins JV Boys soccer team,
played a home game against Sabis on the varsity field, a team not
usually on Hopkins’ schedule. The field was wet due to heavy rain
before the game, and this would lead to some very interesting plays. As
usual, when the Hawks are successful, they score early. Chad
Sanderson scored a goal to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead within the first
ten minutes. Minutes later Sabis got lucky when they scored a goal
off of a deflected cross into the penalty box. About ten minutes
later Chad Sanderson scored another goal, his second of the game, to
give Hopkins a 2-1 lead. The hard-fought first half would end with a
2-1 Hopkins lead. The second half began with a strong Sabis attack,
which would result in a goal about ten minutes into the second half.
Nearly five minutes later, a retaliatory goal by Cole Burdell just
inside the penalty box gave Hopkins a 3-2 lead. There were many shots
by both teams during the rest of the second half without any result.
Both teams fought hard, but the Hawks came out victorious. The final
score was 3-2.

On Monday, September 19th, the JV Boys took the long bus ride to face

Hopkins had plenty of missed shots in the first half, but was on the
offensive for most of the time. Late in the first half, Hopkins
goalie Ethan Sanderson made a great diving save to keep the score 1-0
going into the second half. The early part of the second half was
uneventful until Cole Burdell scored his first goal of the season to
increase the Hopkins lead 2-0. Hopkins was on the offensive for the
remainder of the game with little chance for Pioneer. Hopkins won the

Hopkins Academy soccer is know for always being the team to beat. In the past years, Hopkins Academy wasn’t really a threat, but was more of just your average soccer team. Schools know about us and put us on their radar for the top teams to beat. Last year Hopkins academy boys varsity soccer won the GcGrath South soccer league. Unfortunately there post season was short lived after losing to gateway in the tournament 2-0. After the graduating class left, it took 9 seniors from the varsity squad also. This gave doubt to some when the question of if Hopkins could win league again next year was brought up.
