Sep. 12, 2018:  It will be soccer madness down at Chambers Field for the next week and a half. The boys' varsity team will play home games against Edgemont and Woodlands, and the girls' team will play against Pelham, Croton, and Irvington. Both teams will also compete in the final round of the Broncofest tournament on Saturday, September 22. The boys have already clinched a spot in the championship final of the Broncofest, and the Bronco girls will play in the first round of the tournament today at home against Pelham.

The Bronxville girls' soccer team is always a threat to go deep into the playoffs, and this year is no exception. The Broncos are ranked No. 8 in the LoHud Section 1 Power Rankings this week, and they are also the top-ranked team in Class B. Bronxville gets the No. 1 spot in Class B with good reason. They have won six out of the last eight Class B Section 1 Championships.

Captains Rachael Peacock and Isabel Sondey lead the girls' team this season. Peacock and senior Catherine Faville should be big contributors to the team's success, as both were named to LoHud's Elite 11, a list that recognizes the top eleven high school soccer players in all of Section 1. Other key players include Lily JebejianAshley ToalMaeve SullivanVictoria RuffoMilly Koenig, and Alex Doukas. Also contributing this season are seniors Clio DakoliasKunzang Namgyal, and Hayley Berry.

"We are fortunate to have a great group of determined girls who have a great work ethic and great attitude," said longtime coach Don Cupertino.

The Bronco girls are 2-1 on the season so far with two strong wins against Eastchester and Rye Neck and a 2-0 loss to rival Albertus Magnus. The Broncos lost to the Falcons in sectionals last fall, but this year the Falcons will move up to Class A during the playoffs.

"I was very happy with our performance even though it was a loss," noted Cupertino. "Albertus is a very strong opponent and is one of the favorites to win Class A."

The boys' team graduated an incredible 16 seniors last year and begins the season as a very young team with only six seniors: Paul MagaudJack KochanskyLuke RedmanKevin LekaJay Burstein, and Lucas Rodembusch. Top returning players include Maguad, juniors Luke DoukasJimmy Gallo, and Theo Liao, and sophomore Henry Sheehan, and key newcomers include junior defenders Luke Freeman and Theo Sperber and freshman defender Aidan Sulimirski.

The Bronco boys kicked off the season at the end of August by defeating Croton 1-0 in the first round of the Broncofest and continued their success by defeating Ramapo 3-2 in the Westchester/Rockland Challenge on Labor Day. Their record is now 4-0 with additional wins over Solomon Schechter and Hastings last week. Scoring for the Broncos in the first four games were Luke Doukas (2), Jimmy Gallo (2), Austin BoydPaul Magaud, and Luke FreemanTheo Liao has 21 saves so far this season.

The Bronco boys have plenty of home games, but they will also play at Tuckahoe on Friday at 4:30 pm. The Tigers are the No. 1-ranked team in Class C.

Go Broncos.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
