Fairfield hosted Washington Thursday night at FHS for senior night and the Trojans came away with an 8-1 victory in front of a loud and proud group of parents, friends and family.

The home team took a commanding 5-1 lead into the half with senior Shawn Spurrier getting two of those scores when he found himself in the box twice and spun and launched the ball into the back of the net.

Demon senior Julio Salgado described his goal after the game, “We were working up the field and got our outside pass to Caleb Suchan who crossed it over to me and I volleyed it over the goalie.”

With an 8-1 lead late, an unfortunate call was made when the referee reacted to an interaction between Washington freshman Zac Stout and Fairfield sophomore Adrian Restrepo.

“The first card was for the Washington player pushing the player in white down and the second card was for when he retaliated by striking the Washington player.”

There was no strike.

 

Head Coach Felisto Guezimane was 10 feet behind me and didn’t see a strike either and plans to appeal in whatever way they are allowed using the video of the game, although he’s not sure it will help because he’s never heard of anyone appealing something like this.

As for Restrepo’s take on the play...

“The guy pushed me down and I tried to stand up and he said I hit him in the face. I didn’t try to hit him, but the ref said I hit him so I got the red card.”

Restrepo will miss the next game for the Trojans which will be in the second round against either Knoxville or Oskaloosa.

“I need to help my replacement and show him what to do and teach him to be better,” said the sad-faced sophomore.

“I’ll practice hard to play the next game at substate,” he added.

When asked if this will motivate him for his return in the substate game?

“Of course, yeah. I’m going to work harder.”

Washington will play Keokuk at Clear Creek in their first round game and Salgado wants to improve from the season finale, of course.

“We want to have a better game, we had kind of a let down and we need to work on our communication and pressure the ball a little bit more.”

Defensively Kolten Webber assisted in keeping the goals minimal for the Demons.

“I like that offense can do their jobs and put points on the board and I can do my job,” said the towering, beatboxing backfielder.

“The most we can do is keep it 0-0, but I know if I do my part, I can trust my offense because Chay and Shawn are beasts and they do everything perfectly everytime.”

The undefeated Southeast Conference champions got two goals from sophomore Leone Gichure, Xavier Kapijimpanga, Spurrier and one a piece from Chaysten Titus and Nicholas Frisbie.
