From MSHS Boys Soccer Head Coach Dan Salmon:

  • “This was our best game of the weekend. The team really started to gel and it showed in the second half.  We are really happy with the play of our freshman Charlie Hrodey.  It was a good first tournament for him. Canyon Medina and defenders Hunter Sandstrom, Will Salo, and Indigo Catalano turned in strong performances.”
