CHAMPIONS! JV Boys Soccer Wins MIAA B-Conference Title

Eagles fans showed up in droves to cheer the JV Boys to victory at the MIAA Championship game against Creek’s cross-town rivals, the Severn Admirals.  Fans were not disappointed, as they experienced an intense – yet gratifying – match, which culminated with this beloved group of athletes playing their hearts out and making school history.

The first half of the title game was a tense defensive battle, remaining 0-0 at the midpoint.  However, whatever Coaches Aronica, Bucci ’12, and Lacey ’18 said to the team at halftime needs to be patented, as the Eagles came back on the field ready to win.  The season’s leading scorer Bennett Bucci ’24 lived up to his reputation coming out full-speed ahead, and scoring 11 seconds into the half.  Freshman Shane Fawehimni carried the momentum scoring a second goal for the Eagles one minute later.  From there, the Eagles defense – led by Hunter Walls ’24, Maddox Thamasangvarn ’24, and Eamon Ensor ’25 - fought an intense battle, holding the Admirals to one goal.  Sophomore superstar Aiden Evans lived up to his reputation, making several extraordinary saves – especially in the intense last minutes of the game.

Reflecting the spirit of teamwork they have shown throughout the entire season, every player on the team contributed to this victory.  Consistent offensive pressure from team captains Jake Berry ’25 and Tyler Stroble ’24 was a key element to the win, as well as the controlled possession provided by Javi Mina-Vega ’25. Sophomore Ben Tyburski was notable for his work in the field converting goals, while Gavin Fridley ’24 came back from an injury to give his all in the game.  Sophomores Noah Smarowsky, Grey Winer, Ray Flanagan, and Collin O’Neill along with freshmen James Stubbs, Jonas Gabler, and Charlie Malone were clutch both in this game – and in the weeks leading up to the title match.

Making the win even more notable, the Eagles finished the game without three starters, suffering injuries to Bucci, Walls, and Laycook. 

"We are so proud of this team," shared Head Coach Clayton Aronica. "I couldn't have asked for a better group of guys. They listened, they worked hard, they became tough, and they did it together."

Indian Creek is proud of this team, comprised of athletes known for having fun on the field, who worked hard to get to this point.  They had a memorable season, from James Stubbs’ Creekfest win on a free kick, to Jake Berry’s game winning goal in the semifinals, both against St. Marys.

Congratulations to James, Bennett, Eamon, Aiden, Shane, Ray, Gavin, Jonas, Graden, Charlie, Javi, Collin, Noah, Tyler, James, Maddox, Ben, Hunter, and Grey, along with coaches Aronica, Bucci ’12, and Lacey.  As Coach Aronica predicted, "ICS will become the soccer program to beat in the near future, with these young men leading the way."  Stay tuned!
