Luis Gomez ’21

Gomez collected a loose ball inside the 18-yard box and drove it past his younger brother, Blue Team goalkeeper Felipe Gomez ’22, for the winning margin. The game was scoreless to that point perhaps only because Felipe Gomez stopped three straight shots at close range in the 62nd minute. Both teams had chances, but Francis Betkowski ’23 and Gabe Bachtell ’23 combined for a shutout in goal for the White Team. 

The second game in the series is scheduled for Saturday, October 24.
