Radnor "Gents" Varsity Soccer Team Tops GV

Radnor's Varsity Boys Soccer team hosted Garnett Valley Thursday afternoon, and won 3-0 in a hard fought game.

The Radnor High School Varsity Boys soccer team — known as the Radnor Gents — had a handy win over opponent Garnett Valley Thursday afternoon at Enke turf field at RHS. The 3-0 shutout brings the team to 1-0-1 in the Central League, and 3-0-1 overall for the 2012 season.

Senior Adam Erkis (#5) said "It's always good getting our first central league win of the season, but we still have a long ways to go".

And according to Senior Captain Matthew Lundstrom, "We went into the game knowing we needed 3 points with the win amd we did just that. We made our mark on the central league as a team of warriors but this is just the beginning of many games to come."

But Senior Kevin Cox (#14) perhaps summed it up best when he said, "Garnet valley played a good game today, and knocked the ball around very well. We capitalized on our scoring chances and were very happy to get a vital three points in the central league. We are still looking to improve a lot individually and more importantly as a team, and hope to get positive results from pivotal central league games like this one in the future."

Senior Captain Christopher Martin (#8) scored and had two assists. Senior Nico Peleaz (#10) scored once. Senior Ryan Cutler (#4) scored, and Senior Matthew Pelton (#13) had an assist.

"Gents"? What is this? We are The Radnor Raiders!

The nickname the "Gents" is a nickname the team created for themselves, much like the Boys Lacrosse team is called "RALA" and the GIrls Lacrosse team is called "NORLAX". These nicknames inspire bonding within the team, and are part of a growing tradition. While we are officially the "Radnor Raiders" this is the nickname the team has for itself.
