Athletic Results

Boys Soccer: On a rainy Tuesday night, Stevenson (15-0-3) traveled to Round Lake to play in a non-conference game and came away with a 1-1 tie. The game swung back and forth between the teams and the rain added another layer of complexity to the game. The game was scoreless at halftime and the Patriots struck first in the 43rd minute. Bryant Rouse played an excellent bending cross into the box to find Daniel Sokolovsky, who scored. Stevenson defended well in the second half and Aidan Morris made several crucial saves. Round Lake continued to press for a goal and eventually leveled the score in the 68th minute. The Patriots will play their final regular season game against nonconference opponent Ridgewood on the road at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday.  

Allied Bowling: The Patriots traveled to Lakes Bowl to take on Round Lake. Four bowlers bowled over 100 for their highest game of the season: Gile Pomponi (123), Mark Brady (103), Rachel Eng (103) and Shephia Zhou (106). Unfortunately, it still was not enough to defeat Round Lake. Next up for Stevenson is a triangular at 4 p.m. today at Fairhaven Lanes.
