Your Standley Laker Gator Men's Soccer team entered the 1st round of the State Class 4A Soccer tournament as the 14th seed on Wed. Oct. 26 with a record of 9-4-2 after tying D'Evelyn 1-1 in the final game of the regular season on Oct. 18. That gave D'Evelyn the conference title. Coach Mike Day said, "that was a ton of fun to be part of. It was a great battle, and I enjoyed being part of it. All the boys found hard." Unfortunately the Gators would be without starting goalie <strong>Simon Van Den Abbeele</strong> due to injury.

The 1st game of the playoffs at the NAAC against Pueblo Central (11-4, 4-1) was scoreless in the 1st half. In the 2nd half at the 52nd minute, senior Hunter Rouse eluded a Pueblo defender and scored the lone goal of the match eluding freshman goalie Jess Chavez. The "goal seemed like it took a lot longer than it actually did to go in," said Rouse. "I'm very happy it went in." Pueblo came close to tying it in the 55th minute with a short that crossed teh goal mouth from a difficult angle. Sophomore Erik Macias came close to making it 2-0 in the 71st minute with a shot just wide.

Next up is the 3rd seed The Classical Academy (14-2) on Nov. 1. Last year, they ended the Gators' run in the Class 4A State semi-finals. "I'm pretty excited about the opportunity to go down there," Coach Day said. "This is a pretty young team, and we're playing with house money."
