Following the game, the U19 squad had their match against Manhattan SC U19 and won 3-0 with goals by Vicente Castro ‘19, Matias Valenzuela ‘19, and Cory Booth ‘19.

Sunday was a day Northwood’s soccer program hopes to soon forget. The U19s began the day against academy team BW Gottschee at St. John’s University in Queens, New York. where they lost by an unusual 4-0. That’s the first time an opponent has scored four goals against the Black Rock F.C Residential Academy.
