Environmental Science Classes Visit EHT Nature Reserve

The Environmental Science classes went to the Nature Reserve this week to study two different topics: forestry and soils . The college prep class used forestry tools to identify what makes a healthy ecosystem in terms of biodiversity and the AP class looked at soil layers in two separate ecosystems - Pine Oak Upland and Pitch Pine Lowland. They also identified signs of wildlife and how fires would affect these ecosystems. We also tracked the water table at the Nature Reserve and compared it to spring levels.

Varsity Boys Soccer

On Friday, the boy soccer team travelled to Vineland for a Friday showdown of two of Cape Atlantic League’s toughest contenders. Vineland has been battling back to the glories of yesteryear, but the Eagles were not going to let that happen on their watch. The game started with Ahmad striking fast, putting the first of three in the back of the net. Nate Biersbach continued in his campaign for CAL Rookie of the Year by finding the back of the net for the seventh time this season. But the story of the day belongs to Ayotoye Oguntuase and Manny Ruiz. Constant friends on and off the field, the Eagles odd couple made a pact to help each other out on the bus ride to Vineland. Toye, a defender, knew that his chances to score were likely to never happen and this had caused him to be down in the dumps. Manny, never wanting to see his friend cry, decided to take matters into his own hands and give his buddy Toye the chance of a lifetime. In the second half, Manny took the ball deep to the left corner. As he held the ball in the corner, he waved his arms frantically. The Clan began to take this as taunting of their beloved mascot, FlapFlap, and pressed harder. Little did they know that Manny was calling to his buddy Toye to come up from the back. Toye, came bursting through the defense, into the box where the ball was placed by Manny to allow the simplest of touches to be put into the back of the net. Toye whelped with joy and he had scored his first career goal. After the game Toye took all the congratulations from his team and was smiling from ear to ear. When he saw Manny, he ran up to him thanking him when Manny said, “No Toye, thank you. Thank you for giving me my first career assist.” The Eagles won 6-1 that day, but due to that moment, it is safe to say that everyone in Gittone Stadium felt a little magic that day. Niko Rubio also had a rip that day…

On Saturday, the Quakers of Moorestown made their way to the home Eagles in a battle is two of the top ranked teams in South Jersey. Moorestown was currently sitting as the number one seed in Group 3 and have been a force to be reckoned with in the Olympic Division, let alone an out of conference rival for our boys in black. Last year the boys suffered defeat at the hands of the Quakers and they knew there was a lot riding on this game. The boys were nervous, that is, except for one player: Cole Gordon. Cole Gordon a player so call and cool that Matthew McConaughey has him in his contacts as “My Spirit Animal.” As the game started, a slight was seen in Cole’s face that seemed to say, I know something you don’t know. It was a battle from the beginning, but the Eagles were in command. After a few missed chances, Cole decided he had had enough and his opportunity came knocking. Moorestown coughed up a kick and the corners of Cole’s mouth started to point upwards. The ball was crossed by inswinger and youngblood Niko Rubio towards the box, zeroing in on everyone’s favorite Eagle. Unmarked and uncontested, Cole Gordon soared through the air and made contact so sweet it could have given cavities to all of the Moorestown bench. The ball went into the top corner of the net and with that the Eagles went up 1-0. Moorestown fought back and with four minutes left, tied the game. The Eagles were sent into overtime and had to defend against the wind. Ten minutes later and after up no windows to get close to the Eagle net, the tides turned and it was Eagles’ time to be on the attack. Moorestown once again played the ball out of the touchline and caused a corner. Cole Gordon calmly ran to get the ball, handed it to his trusted compadre Kevin Aguiriano and said, “deja vu,” as he winked at him. Kevin swung the ball into the same spot as Niko and whoever claims that lightning doesn't strike twice clearly never met Cole Gordon. Cole headed ball into same spot as before and sent the Eagles on to victory. As Cole shook the other teams hand and said, “namaste,” no one could be mad at losing at the hands and head of such a cool character.
