University Christian’s boys soccer season came to an end at #1 seed Westchester Country Day School in High Point on Saturday, October 19 by a final score of 5-3. Early on the match was even with WCCDS scoring five minutes into the contest and UCHS answering three minutes later on a deflected goal by Andrew Poe. The score remained 1-1 until the final five minutes of the half when Westchester scored two times, the final goal coming seconds before time expired, for a 3-1 lead.
In the second half Westchester extended the lead to 4-1 only to see Hayden Patel score unassisted to cut the margin to 2 goals. After a final goal by the Wildcats UCHS’ Eli Goebelbecker scored from outside the box for the final tally of 5-3. UCHS was thwarted twice on penalty kicks by the WCCDS goalie.

Best record in program history, 12-6
