The head coach Kevin Kramer described his goalie as a “super kid. This is his first year playing for us. he is a natural athlete. He played Unbelievable today.”
The Broncos offense was balanced with three different players scoring.
“Motta and Xavier have figured into our offense all year,” said Coach Kramer. The third player scored his first varsity goal for Keefe Tech.
