Team LaPensee Plumbing remains undefeated

ANNA MARIA – With only one game left in the regular season, the U10 competition is heating up with the LaPensee Plumbing team going into week six undefeated.

After solidly defeating Cloud Pest Control last Tuesday, LaPensee will face the number two ranked team, Sato Real Estate, in the last game before the start of playoffs.

In the 7-0 game, TJ Hagey and Preston LaPensee each had a hat trick in the game, scoring six points. Luca Rosen- krans made a solo goal for his team, helping to secure a solid win.

On the Cloud Pest Control side of the field, goalkeeper Salvatore Vera made six big saves. Vera’s counterpart for team LaPensee, keeper Asher Patel, contributed to the team win by making three critical stops, keeping the opponents scoreless through two halves of play.

Despite neither team getting on the scoreboard, the AMI Coconuts versus Island Real Estate proved to be an exciting defensive game with both goalies kept on their toes.

Island Real Estate’s Oliver Barr had five big saves in the game, while Sophia Kerr made seven huge stops for AMI Coconuts.

Hoping to make a move in the standings, team Solid Rock Construction lost to a determined Sato Real Estate squad. With his four saves and a strong defense, Sato Real Estate prevented Solid Rock from scoring. Gunnar Maize’s four saves helped to ensure the shutout.

The hot feet of Sato Real Estate kept the Solid Rock goalie, Luke Willing, on his toes throughout the game. Willing had seven saves in the game as his opponents sailed rocket shots his way.

On offense, the Sato brothers, Dylan and Brandon, worked the pitch. Younger brother Brandon scored three goals, with an assist by Dylan, to help take their team to victory.

In U14 play, team Progressive Cabinetry won against Mac Parkman with a final score of 2-1. Dominik Zupa scored the single goal for team Mac Parkman, while Mason Moss had two goals for the Progressive squad.

Charlie Serra was credited with four stops as the Progressive goalkeeper. Keeping the game close despite the loss, Xane Flores made three saves to close out the night of soccer at The Center.
