Coming into the first round of the CHSAA state boys’ soccer tournament, the Rangeview boys soccer team had won nine out of their previous ten games, absolutely tearing up the turf.

In the first round of playoffs, the players had their hands full with a tough Chatfield team as their opponent.

Both teams scored two goals in the first half, but the Raiders could not run away with the win, falling short by one point, the final score was 3-2. The team still finished with the league championship, and an 11-5 record with only one loss in the EMAC league.

Senior Jesus Morales led the team with a stunning ten goals, followed by six from Junior Michael Johnson. Senior Jack Ramirez had a team high of ten assists in his final season.

The Raiders’ Boys Soccer team look to have ten returning Varsity players heading into the 2015-2016 season, along with high expectations.
