11-0 modified team looks to kick start Fallsburg soccer

By Rob Potter
FALLSBURG — If modified soccer results are any indication of what’s ahead for the Fallsburg boys varsity soccer program, there’s a lot to look forward to, especially following several disappointing seasons.
On Tuesday afternoon, Fallsburg’s modified team finished with a perfect 11-0 record by defeating the Tri-Valley Bears, 8-0.
“The future of Comets’ soccer is very bright,” athletic director Tim Bult said.
Bult made the first move in building the powerhouse modified team by hiring coach Oscar Tamayo this year. Tamayo had coached an undefeated youth soccer program in Fallsburg.
“Coach Tamayo has done an excellent job of teaching these players about the game of soccer,” varsity coach Herb Foertsch said after watching the game Tuesday. “I am looking forward to having these players on my team in the next couple of years and playing well enough to reach the sectionals.”
In Tuesday’s finale, Olav Peterson Langeland gave the Comets a 1-0 lead with a breakaway goal about five minutes into the first quarter of the game. Peterson Langeland scored another goal in the second quarter to extend Fallsburg’s advantage to 2-0.
Cristian Hernandez also scored a pair of goals for the Comets.
“I let everybody play,” Tamayo said. “They all enjoy the game more that way.”
In winning all 11 of their games, eight by shutouts, the Comets outscored their opponents by a total of 92 to 5. Their closest game was a 4-2 victory over Tri-Valley.
“We have had a very good season,” Tamayo humbly said.
The members of the Fallsburg Comets modified team are: Kevin Cerritos, Cullen Feagin, Hector Fuentes, Cristian Hernandez, Brenden Hooks, Mirza Javed, Adam Justiniano, Olav Peterson Langeland, Carmine Malanka, Joshua Malman, Kelvin Muniz, Guillermo Orellana, Jaidon Ramirez, Andrew Rivas, Tyreek Robinson, Christian Rosales, Andres Tamayo and Shamiq Williams.
