As the football season is nearing its end, the playoff implications are growing in intensity. On Friday, October 21, R-MA found itself hosting Christchurch School, the seventh-ranked team in the state for VISSA division II football. R-MA, at the time, stood at number six.

With the playoffs on the line, every game is a must-win for the Yellow Jackets, and the beginning of last Friday’s game did not look like a promising victory. After several miscues, Christchurch School jumped out to a 12-0 lead before the end of the first quarter.

Last Friday the varsity soccer team showed just how far they have come this season as they pushed regular season champions Highland all the way in a tense game. 

R-MA opened the scoring with a goal from Samson Jiya ‘18, only for Highland to take advantage of some slack defending and claim three first-half goals.

The Middle School soccer team had two exciting games this week. We faced Quantico on Monday and came away with a 4-2 victory. The boys started off with an energetic first half. Sidique Thomas-Sualley ‘21 had three assists in the half. Nnamdi Odom ‘23, JJ Banek-Gabele ‘21 and newcomer Netheneel Loolo ’23 all scored in the first half. The boys were moving as a unit and playing great team defense.
