Whenever Jonathan Law and Foran High get together on the pitch, the intensity level is always high. Both boys coaches – Law’s Donato Piselli and Foran’s Rick DiStefano – know it. So do their players. This is a match neither squad wants to be on the losing end of.
So, it probably didn’t come as a surprise to those in attendance Sept. 23, in the first of two meetings was likely to be a low-scoring contest, where miscues by either team could lead to an advantage for the other. Two mistakes early on in the second half, after neither team could score in the opening 40 minutes, allowed host Law to take a 2-0 lead, which was transformed into a 2-1 victory, bringing the team’s record to 3-2-1 and giving the program a mark over .500, the first that one could remember in recent memory.
