Somerset 5, Chestnut Ridge 0: In Somerset, five Golden Eagles strikers each scored a goal as the hosts shut out the Lions. Vigi Hersh, Logan Baker, Logan Seslow, Carson Vought and Declan Egal each scored for Somerset while Liam Egal provided three assists on Wednesday.

Somerset’s victory was the 200th of manager Mark Wassilchalk’s career.

“For me, it’s a night to reflect and be grateful to have the opportunity to cross paths with so many wonderful people,” Wassilchalk said. “Over the years there have been many ups and downs. Although the good ones far outnumber the bad ones, there were some tough times. Moments that I know I learned from and that I hope the players learned from. In all honesty, in my 16 years at Somerset, I probably learned more from the 208 players I was lucky enough to know than what those players learned from me. Achieving a feat like 200 wins isn’t about the individual. It’s about the efforts of those 208 players and their families who have supported them. I can’t think of a better time than now to thank all the players, coaches and others I met during my time at Somerset for giving me the opportunity to achieve this milestone.

“Actually, as I think about it, 200 wins is a great achievement and something to be proud of. However, when I look at what some of these kids who have been in our football program over the years and what “they have continued to achieve is even more impressive. When I think of all the children who have touched my life, it goes far beyond football. Many have shown how hard work and perseverance pays off There are doctors, nurses, teachers, coaches, business owners, firefighters, paramedics, engineers, Eagle Scouts, chemists and biologists working in critical areas of study, West Point graduates, members of armed forces and the list goes on and on. These are people I’m proud to know and this is a program I’m proud to be a part of. As a coach, I enjoyed a great run thanks to everyone I’ve had the chance with to be associated with the Somerset area soccer program. Reaching 200 wins gave me the opportunity to step back and be proud of not only the success we’ve had on the pitch, but also the success our players have had off the pitch.
