In Chantilly High boys’ soccer action last week, the Chargers, in a non-district game played at Lake Braddock Secondary, lost a close 3-2 contest to the Bruins. The game was scoreless at halftime. But Lake Braddock came out strong and scored a goal a few minutes into the second half. The Bruins tallied a second goal about 10 minutes later for a 2-0 advantage.
Chantilly gave up a foul outside of the box and Lake Braddock scored a third goal with about 20 minutes left. But Chantilly, down 3-0, never gave up and with four minutes left, Billy Germain was fouled at the top of the box. He took the free kick and scored. Chantilly then came back on a nice play up the right side, with Germain playing a through ball to Chris Treme, who scored the second goal to get the Chargers within 3-2. That was how the contest ended. Evan Ragland and Irvin Perez played good games on defense for Chantilly.
In its next game, Chantilly lost a 2-1 decision to South County, another team from the Patriot District. Germain scored the lone goal for Chantilly, the score coming on a penalty kick in the first half to put the Chargers up 1-0. South County came back and tied the game in the second half, then went up a goal with 10 minutes left.
