On Monday September 24, 2018, Braulio Ostos broke the record for most shutouts posted in a high school career for a Carbondale Terrier Goalkeeper against Centralia after making two saves to hold the Orphans at bay. The record was previously held by Brian Summerville who had 29 in 2 years. In posting two more shutouts this past week versus conference opponents Mt. Vernon and Belleville Althoff, he now has 32 and counting!

He almost lost the shutout versus Althoff after a handball in the 18-yard box by the Terrier defense resulted in a penalty kick. Head Coach Jeff Hansen stayed cool and told Braulio, “you got this.” Sure enough, Braulio came up big with the save to keep the score at 0-0 and keep his six game shutout streak alive.

Ostos, very modestly stated, “the credit goes to my backline and the rest of the team in front of me.”

Ostos has had four very successful years of varsity soccer, starting since his freshman year. The team has only allowed 8 goals this year thanks to him and his solid back line of Jacob Collie, James Baltz, Tanner Burke, Conner Snowden and Tyler Sherrill. Ostos has played all 17 games and has had to make a total of 48 saves.

Braulio also averages 2.8 saves per match and has a goals against average of 0.471 this year, according to Stat Definitions.

The CCHS Boys Soccer Team plays Marion the 2nd of October, in hopes of becoming conference champions for the first time since 2011. Braulio and the team hope to post another shutout and in doing so keep a clean sheet against South Seven Conference opponents, which is a very rare feat as the Conference is full of talent.

After losing narrowly in the final minute of the sectional semi-final to the state runner-up Waterloo Gibault last year, the team has high hopes to make a playoff run and keep the shutouts coming. The future is bright for the senior as he can and most likely will continue his soccer career in college and his life after.

I remember the first game I played with Braulio as my goalie in CSI. It was the first game of my fifth grade year and he was new to the program. He jumped in goal and I was immediately astonished by his quick reflexes and agility. Since then, I hate facing him in goal as at times it seems he is impossible to score on.
