Hornets Down Jets in Soccer Island Bowl, 2-1

Alameda High defeated Encinal High, 2-1, at Don Grant Field on May 13. The island rivals battled for the first time this season as the Hornets won a spirited match.

“We should have kept the same intensity throughout the whole game. We need to work on minimizing the amount of wasted chances,” Encinal senior Kevin Le said. “We dominated the game but we let our guard down after we scored and that’s how they scored their winning goal.”

Encinal senior Adrian English scored the equalizer for the Jets.

“It’s always a great feeling to score at home but it’s tough losing in such a tight game,” said English. “Our team played their hearts out and it showed on the field.”

The Jets (2-2-1) and Hornets square off again on May 25 at Thompson Field.
