Coach says:  “Midfielder Matt Solis is the Raiders’ leading scorer on the season, with eight goals through the team’s first 10 games.  The freshman from Eisenhower High School was tied for second place in the NWAACC, through the month of September.  Solis’ nose for the ball has opened up the Raiders offense this season, as the team has already equaled their goals scored for all of last season, with six games left to play.  Matt is a quiet kid, who works hard in practice every day.  His speed and touch with the ball make him a dangerous offensive weapon for us.”
