The Gray Bees came up against their rivals, Pennington, on Wednesday, Sept. 25. They played at NJIT at 4 p.m. against a strong and physical Pennington team. The game was end to end and had chances at both sides of the field. In 80 minutes played, only one goal was scored from the penalty spot in the second half by Rhys Armstrong.

The Gray Bees started out slow, looking tired in the first half. Goalkeeper George Silva UD2 said, “The players looked tired after a very tough first half of our schedule. We need to get a good rest and prepare for the next game.” In the first half, SBP found itself in the position where its players were not controlling the game with most of the possession. The game went in at halftime 0-0. 

The second half started and the opening goal came from Cao Chaves SY going on a run down the left wing and finding himself in the box getting fouled for a penalty kick. Rhys Armstrong UD2 stepped up to put the penalty kick away with a good finish into the bottom left corner. The goal put the team in a good position and they battled it out to the final whistle to keep it that score to the end.

Lui Chaves SY said, “We played our worst game of the season against Pennington on Wednesday and still managed to find the result we needed to keep our goals alive. As a team we will come back fitter and ready for our next game on Monday.” 

On Monday, Sept. 30 the Grey Bees will be on the road again against Christian Brothers Academy, N.J., to play their tenth game of the season. They are heading into this game with (8-0-1) record and still have a chance to become national champions for the 3rd time in a row.
