We offer our congratulations to head coach Lorenzo Di Benedetto on the East Boston High School boys soccer team on winning the 2015 Boston city soccer championship.
The Jets truly proved that they are best team in Boston with a decisive 3-0 victory over Burke in the final. It was the second year in a row that East Boston has claimed the coveted title.
To add to the magnitude the achievement, Sebastian Toro was named the tournament MVP.
It was an especially satisfying win for the seven seniors, all of whom have enhanced their soccer skills under Di Benedetto’s guidance and instruction.
The Jets will take their impressive 17-1 record and No. 1 seed in to the MIAA Tournament. It’s been a great ride so far and we wish the team well in the postseason.
We also offer our congratulations to the East Boston High girls soccer and volleyball teams that advanced to the city finals and who now prepare for the MIAA Tournament – and the East Boston High School football team that hosts Greater Lowell in the Division 5 North semifinals Friday at East Boston Stadium.
The many student-athletes are representing our high school with sportsmanship and honor. The Eastie coaches deserve much credit for their leadership during this exciting fall sports season.
And we’re sure EBHS Principal Phil Brangiforte is just as proud of the teams’ success as we are.
