Current Bears




Not enough coverage of soccer, but here’s a WaPo story about the Bears win over StA.

As the second half wore on, the third-ranked St. Albans boys’ soccer team began to trap a tired Landon defense in its own end. Any balls cleared away were quickly returned back into the Bears box. Gaps between Landon defenders began to widen and invite through balls toward sophomore goalkeeper Alex Freed. It seemed that all the visiting Bulldogs needed in order to break the scoreless deadlock was a ball to bounce their way, but as an afternoon drizzle transformed into an early-evening downpour Tuesday in Bethesda, the ball was not bouncing.

Landon successfully frustrated St. Albans’s attack during regulation, and 45 seconds into overtime, the Bears ended the game with their first shot on target. After St. Albans cleared Landon forward Josh Meka’s cross off of the goal line, junior Jorge Dumenigo sent a one-time shot from 18 yards out sliding into the bottom corner for a 1-0 victory.

“When I saw the ball was cleared right to me, all I just thought was shoot, shoot, shoot. I did not think. I just wanted to place it in the corner. No power, just placement,” Dumenigo said. “You can’t really play many passes in conditions like this. You have to keep it on the ground. The rain makes it slick and just propels the ball past people.”

Landon (2-1-1, 1-1 Interstate Athletic Conference) came into the game well aware of the firepower possessed by St. Albans’s senior duo of Chris Fleischerand Nate Johnson after the pair combined for two goals and three assists in the Bulldogs’ two defeats of the Bears last season. Tuesday, Johnson led St. Albans from center back while Fleischer tried to pull the attacking strings from his advanced midfield position. St. Albans’s best chance came midway through the first half when Fleischer slipped a through ball to forward Jabari Wilbon, whose breakaway attempt was smothered by a charging Freed.

The 22 fouls called in just over 80 minutes of play prevented a genuine flow from developing, but St. Albans failed to take advantage of a number of free-kick opportunities from dangerous positions in the second half. Every time the Bulldogs whipped a cross into Landon’s box, the white gloves of Freed were there to preserve the shutout.

“I had to be alert in the tough conditions, definitely a slippery ball,” said Freed, who made seven saves in his fourth game starting in the Bears’ net. “I stayed calm and relaxed. I just had to focus and catch the ball. It’s cool and fun to play in the rain. It helps the ambiance of the game and makes it more entertaining.”

The win over St. Albans (4-1-1, 1-1 IAC) breaks Landon’s three-game losing streak to their IAC rivals and provides the Bears with confidence ahead of Friday’s matchup with arch-rival Georgetown Prep.

“I’m just going to try to keep this simple,” Dumenigo said. “It feels great.”
