Varsity Boys Soccer
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.
