Center Moriches soccermen have
undefeated season. The Center Moriches
junior varsity soccer team managed to
score 49 points in eight games and had
four points scored against them. This
undefeated team is composed entirely of
freshmen and sophomores. The forward
line, composed of Al Herrmann, Hayward
Bullock, Bruce Rumph and Stan Hartman
only averaged about 5 feet 4 inches in
height, but made up the difference against
their taller opponents with playing ability,
speed and endurance. Oddly enough nine
of Herrmann’s 12 points were scored in one
game. Hartman is leader in points scored
with 14. Left wing, Don Loper was also an
excellent scorer, his points totaling eight.
The top assist man was Hayward Bullock
with seven. Center halfback Richie
Edwards and left halfback and captain
Lonnie Fulford were able to use either
foot to their full advantage. Fullbacks
were also of excellent quality, Bob Loper
and Roscoe Francis between them played
such outstanding defense that the goalie,
who is your correspondent (Jim Reiss),
had to make only an average of six saves a
game. Coach for this triumphant team was
Roland Sandberg, an ex-Center Moriches
soccer star. This is Coach Sandberg’s first
season as a Moriches soccer coach and it
looks as if he is off to a good start.
