By PJ MONTEZUMA The Malden High School boys soccer team has started off the season on a high note and do not seem to be slowing down, standing at 5-0-1. Being led by senior captains Blue and Gold member Julio Da Silva and Vinicius Silva, this team has chemistry like no other. With 11 seniors, including goalie Mark Ortiz who already has five shutouts under his belt this season. The team has strong underclassmen as well as a plethora of talent coming off the bench. The team looks forward to returning to the State Tournament for the third time in four years being led by head coach Jeremiah Smith. MHS has been triumphant against Methuen, Lawrence, East Boston, Everett, and Melrose bringing them only three wins away from qualifying for states. Da Silva has five goals followed by senior Felipe Calad and sophomore Joshua Crespo both having two goals. Alongside senior Anthony Caceda, junior Bruno Da Silva, and senior Matteus Silva all having one goal each. On Sept. 18, the team faced off against Brookline in a well fought battle and ended the game in a tie. Their next game is against Somerville on Sept. 24, who beat MHS in the state tournament last fall ending their season.
