Telstar 1, Oak Hill 0; Aug. 31 - Telstar opened their season at home with a 1-0 win over Oak Hill. The only goal of the game was by Nic Conrad with 8:20 remaining in the first half. Dylan Helms had 10 saves and did a great job in goal for the Rebels. “With the amount of pressure our offense put on their defense I thought we were going to score more than we did, but when you play good defense one goal is all you need,” said Coach John Eliot. Rick James, Mohammed Al Zubadi, and Nick Johnson anchored the defense, while Nic Conrad, Ty James, and Eric Lowell led the offensive attack. “I was quite happy with the play of our two freshmen, Jeriah Edwards and Cameron Rothwell. They are coming along and did good for their first high school game. Liam Gallagher added the support we needed at midfield and David Mason worked hard on the far side,” said Eliot.
