Five Staples soccer players competed with the Everton America U-15 team in Londerry, Ireland this week. They did not win the Foyle Cup — but they represented their high school and club teams (and country) quite well.
Rising sophomores Kenji Goto, Graham Gudis, James Lewis, Noah Schwaeber and Aidan Wisher lost in the quarterfinals to Norwich City Academy. The match — a heartbreaker — went to penalty kicks. Norwich City is favored to win the tournament tomorrow.
Everton bounced back to win 2 more games, securing 5th place with a final record of 4-2.
