Game of the Week  
                 B15 Premier v East Bay United                     
The JSSA boys U15s took on a familiar foe, East Bay United, Sunday  afternoon at Olin College as they turned around a defeat in the fall  to a smashing season-opening 7-0 win. The boys started off on the  right foot this spring from the first whistle with non-stop pressure  against East Bay. Superb play from newcomer Eduardo Castro in the  midfield led to a couple great chances with the help of another  newcomer, but familiar last name, James Layden. The boys were shut  down for most of the first half from outstanding play from the East  Bay netminder, but finally found the back of the net with 15 minutes  to play in the half. Castro had a good opportunity to score, but was  foiled from a brilliant team save from the East Bay defenders;  however, that chance was followed up by Omar Lema for his first goal  of the season. A high pressure mentality kept the JSSA boys with the  upper-hand for the rest of the game with goals from Eduardo Castro,  midfielder Asmir Hukanovic, and to top it off, a 40 yard blast from  center-back Michael Boone. The JSSA defense held their own to keep out  the East Bay attack all game and gave goalkeeper Matthew Sexton his  first shutout of the season who came up with a big breakaway save late  in the second-half to keep his goose egg. The boys look forward to  their next opponent after the small April break and take on Nashoba FC  in Lancaster on the 23rd of April.
