September began with a bevy of injuries for the Hawks soccer team. None were more devastating than to our two leading scorers – juniors Alex Cook and Ricardo Collado.
Cook returned to play with limited movement, but Ricardo remained sidelined. Without teamwork, determination, and personal sacrifice, a lesser team would have self-destructed. That is not the nature of this year’s team.
There is an old saying, “Offense wins fans, but defense wins championships.”
