Friday, September 14, Gerritsen Beach Park, Brooklyn– The La Salle Cardinals soccer team got off to another slow start and fell behind 0-2 at the 10-minute mark of the 1st half before eventually losing 6-4 to St. Edmund Prep in a CHSAA divisional game at All American Field in Brooklyn. The loss drops La Salle to 0-2 to begin the 2018 campaign.
St. Edmund got on the board quickly after two LSA defensive lapses that created the scoring opportunities, one on a breakaway and the other on a direct kick, both of which found the back of the net. La Salle senior striker, Ernesto Castelan, single-handedly brought the Cardinals back to life, scoring all four Cardinal goals of the game. Unfortunately, the team needed some more help to get La Salle into the win column.
La Salle Soccer is back in action on Tuesday against Cristo Rey Brooklyn. Kickoff is scheduled for 4pm at Linden Park in Brooklyn.
