It was senior night for the Eagles of Eastern Christian, and the senior- and the entire team- did not disappoint. A convincing 4-0 victory was the result of the best all-around performance put in by the Eagles to date this season.
Eagles goalkeeper Josh Groenewal’s second shut-out victory of the season was supported by a powerful second half attack that saw EC net 4 goals- all by players named Veenstra. The senior triplets were in full force, with goals by Jake (2), Sam, and Jon assisted by Sam Veenstra (2) and Jason Englishmen (2). The four goal barrage was Eastern Christian’s largest margin of victory on the season, and puts the Eagles just one game shy of .500 before taking on Garfield to end the regular season on Thursday.
After the victory, the seniors brought flowers to mom, and hugged loved ones. Junior Andrew Brooks presented the seniors with gifts and a thank you speech to all senior players and Mark Van Reeth and Brenden Le Fevre for their work with video this year. Coach Gesch expressed his gratitude for the team’s maturity, leadership, acceptance, and fun. All gathered closed in a prayer of thanksgiving for these awesome players.
