Pirates senior wing Angelo Alvarez scored a game-high two goals.
The fifth-annual East Coast Florida Boys Soccer All-Star Game, an all-star game featuring Flagler and Volusia counties’ top seniors, was held on the night of Friday, March 29, at the Daytona State College Soccer Stadium.
Flagler Palm Coast and Matanzas both had players selected to compete in the event. Nick De’Morias, Chrystian Orren, Baron Pedro and Will Patin represented the Bulldogs. And Brandt Herron, Angelo Alvarez and Trent Stanley represented the Pirates.
Matanzas head coach Rich Weber, along with Pirates assistant coach and former FPC head coach Reg Monsanto, helped organize the event.
“It’s been great,” Weber said. “It’s all for the kids. That’s why we do it.”
Alvarez was the top performer from Flagler County.
The speedy wing scored two goals: the first was a chip shot over Seabreeze goal keeper Cameron Bowling in the first half, and the second was a straight forward kick after the opposing goal keeper fell down while diving to break up a pass.
“This was a lot of fun. I’m happy I was able to be here,” Alvarez said. “It was pretty competitive. Obviously we all want to win, but no one’s taking it personally. We just had fun with it. It’s just a game for us to all come together.”
