Boys Varsity Soccer Dices Pelham @ Senior Night

Rye Girls Varsity Soccer 2022-10-15 vs Pelham senior night

Rye Boys Varsity Soccer diced Pelham 5-1 during senior night at Nugent Stadium Saturday evening.

“This really was a wonderful night to celebrate the 13 seniors,” said Rye Boys Varsity Soccer Jared Small. “The Senior Night ceremonies were a lot of fun, and it was nice to see the togetherness and spirit translate into another strong first half. We were also thankful to the children and parents from the Rye Youth Soccer U9 Boys Bears, Gators, Sharks, Scorpions, and Tigers join us for the pre-match walkout and halftime game.”

“It was fitting to see Jonas van Beurden, who was making his 55th career appearance over a four-year varsity career, score two brilliant goals,” continued Small. “I was thrilled to see Yves Briginshaw put in a fantastic 30 minute shift at left center back, and also impressed with the play of Arun Jaswal and Luca Parrode, both of whom showed a fantastic work rate throughout the evening.”

Jonas van Beurden, making his 55th career appearance over a four-year varsity career, scored in the 15th and 18th minutes to put Rye up 2-0. His first goal came on a cheeky flick after Jack Childs played a well-cultured corner kick, and his second came after he won possession on a fantastic re-press and put a 25 yard shot just under the cross bar.

In the 26th minute, Jack Childs made a marauding run into left side of the box, eventually serving a ball to Kieran Traynor. Traynor’s initial strike hit the crossbar and he alertly headed the rebound into the goal. Only two minutes later, Tommy Broderick got his head on a long ball and Henry Field headed the secondary ball before Joseph Chai struck for his second goal of the season. The Garnets took a 4-0 lead into halftime.

Stijn Terlouw extended the lead with his 9th and most picturesque goal of the season in the 45th minute. After Henry Field beat a series of opposing players on the left side of the midfield, he switched the point of attack to Julian Koide. Koide served the ball into the box, where Terlouw–draped by a defender–struck an overhead side volley into the upper 90.

Pelham got one back by converting a penalty kick in the 51st minute. Rye finishes the season with a 13-3 record and has earned a #3 seed in the upcoming Section 1 Class A playoffs. Class A has 28 teams, of which a maximum of 24 will qualify for the playoffs. Rye will host a Round of 16 game on Saturday, October 22 against an opponent to be determined.

Watch the replay. Rye finishes 6-0 in the league and 13-3 overall.
