Fairfield soccer team drills MSAE
The Fairfield boys’ soccer team won its seventh game of the season Tuesday, topping host Maharishi School 6-1 in a hometown rivalry game on the M.U.M. campus.
Senior Roan Bachar scored four goals, including one make on a penalty kick. Solomon Constant and Nathan Haerr also had one goal apiece for Fairfield, which improved to 7-5 with the victory.
“The final score is a bit misleading as we did not have a good performance. It was obvious that we were superior to them, and maybe that played a role in the way some of my players approached the game,” said Fairfield coach Felisto Guezimane.
Despite the Trojans’ subpar performance, they lead 4-0 at the half. The Trojans tacked on two more in the second half but allowed the Pioneers to score off a free kick outside the 18-yard line.
Guezimane said he looks for his Trojans to approach their next game much differently.
“The mentality and the way some of my players approached the game was not acceptable. Players have to take games more seriously,” he said. “It’s not just about winning, but we have to improve in every game by playing better so we can be ready for the postseason.”
Bachar, Constant, Haerr and Darrin Dimmitt each had one assist. Senior goalkeeper Spencer Peterman made five saves.
The Trojans, who also picked up a 7-0 win over Cedar Valley Christian at the IMS tournament April 27, will be at the Mid-Prairie Invite this Saturday.
