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.

The Hawks varsity girls have had a great season so far with a promising 14-4 record (5-3 league). Leading the team is Coach Sicard in his third year coaching girls varsity soccer and helping him are his two captains, Emma Konieczny and Kasia Szymborn. With the loss of 14 girls from the previous season, they are a young team as Szymborn explains; “Emma, Olivia, Amanda, Sarah and I couldn’t do it on our own. These girls had big shoes to fill, and so far they’re doing a pretty good job, I’m proud.” While only having 5 returning players, the young team brought up 3 eighth graders, 2 freshmen, and 4 sophomores as well as 4 juniors and only having 2 seniors. Konieczny says, “The loss of 11 seniors is big, but the young kids are doing a really good job stepping in and playing hard, especially against older teams.” As Coach Sicad’s third year as Varsity coach, he is doing well teaching this young team to work toward a great season.
