The Bridgewater-Raritan High boys’ soccer team team finished a season full of ups and downs with a record of 8-8.

The team had many successful games, including handing a tough loss to Governor Livingston High School on its senior night.

The season’s highest point was when the Panthers upset  undefeated Pingry School, successfully handing the perennial state power its  first loss of the season after 15 victories. 

Unfortunately, with sweet victories also came setbacks and losses.

Losing to Hunterdon Central Regional High School, 2-1 ,after holding a 1-0 lead until the last 10 minutes of the game was heartbreaking.

The squad went on to make it to the second round of the Somerset County Tournament while Bridgewater-Raritan was eliminated in the first round of the state sectional tournament.

This was the first season for head coach Mark Heinbach, who was was assisted by James Casey and Alun Williams.

Seniors on the team were Vincent Cirriani, Alexander Rahimi, Diego Henao, Edgar Hernandez, Logan Neno, Ryan Plant, Yusuf Rehman, Nicholas Asatiani, Brandon Sydor and Roshan Dave. Captains were Neno, Plant and Rehman. 

The seniors and captains of the team said they are going to miss playing for the program.

“Seeing my friends every day after school and hanging out with the team outside of school at pasta parties” is what senior and captain Yusuf Rehman is going to miss most.

Although the seniors’ last season may not have ended in the most triumphant of ways, they are still proud of four good years to reminisce on.
