·       The senior boy’s soccer team put up a good fight last night against the Riverside Rebels but came up short, losing with a score of 3 to 4 for the Rebels.  The first half started out with a bang with the Rebels warming up their half of the scoreboard only to be balanced with a Villanova a goal from Chris Spadafora.  Goalie Anthony Pedri had a few good saves but the first half ended 2:1 after Riverside scored on a goal kick. At the start of the second period, the Rebels shot a ball high into the net, making it impossible for Pedri to stop the shot.  Villanova retaliated with a goal by forward fast man Joel Sands.  The Wildcats regained hope when Spadafora revved up his running to score a second goal to tie the game.  In the end, the Rebels broke through defenders Dan Pignanelli and Nic Meloche to score the winning goal for the Riverside. The Wildcats will be playing in the quarter finals next Wed, May 5 at 4pm, location to be announced. Go Wildcats!
