 The boys’ soccer team has come out to a strong start this season with a 13-0-1 record and ranked first overall in the BCSL standings. The last time the boys’ team started a season like this was in 2014 when they began the season 8-2. This year’s team has had impressive wins over Rancocas Valley, Moorestown and Delran.

Coming in at 9-0, the Pirates hosted Delran on Wednesday, Oct. 6. Their victory over Delran brought the Pirates to double-digit wins. Delran was 9-0-1 coming into the game and ranked 8th in the state; the Pirates broke the Bears’ winning streak against Cinnaminson, which had lasted since 2016.

“We haven’t beaten them in a long time, and playing at home, with two undefeated teams, it was a must-win game,” goalie Sean Kennedy said. Kennedy, a senior, has only allowed three goals all season, which came in games against Moorestown and undefeated West Deptford.

The team has scored a combined 46 goals with senior Nathan Weick leading the team with nine goals so far this season. Senior Colin Kenville has scored eight goals and eight assists, and junior Josh Pereira has seven goals and seven assists.

“Some of our veteran players have done a great job helping the younger guys learn the ropes, help us get organized at practices and have made a good example of what to do during practices and games, and in the classroom,” Head Coach Matt Digney said. 

The boys’ team has Senior Colin Kenville, Senior Nate Weick, and Senior Sean Kennedy as their captains this season. Although the team is currently under the leadership of the senior players, there is a lot of potential from the underclassmen.

“As long as we’re doing it the right way, practicing hard, the young guys are learning the right ways then we should continue to be consistent throughout the years,” Coach Digney said. Digney is confident in his underclassmen and their ability to perform.

Juniors Joshua Periera, Aidan Quinn-Wright, and Christian Palmer will be leading the offense next year for the team. Periera and Quinn-Wright have scored a combined 13 goals this season. Periea, Quinn-Wright, and Palmer combine for 14 or the team’s 43 assists. Juniors William Frasso, Robert Drayer, and Dean Karch will be leading the way for the defense next season.

“I think we have a lot of good, young talent, and hopefully the underclassmen carry on the same routines and traditions that we have in place,” Kennedy said. “If they do that we will continue to be a very good program for a very long time.”

 Kennedy is positive about the direction of the program and has confidence in his younger teammates to get the job done in the future. With 64 saves, Kennedy has contributed defensively to the team’s overall success this season.
