The Brentwood boys soccer team kept its streak alive.

Its best player added to his legacy with a monumental achievement.

Its coach joined an elite group.

And it all happened Friday afternoon.

First, the streak: The Brentwood boys soccer team will appear in a county semifinal for the seventh straight season.

The top-seeded Indians defeated No. 8 Hauppauge, 3-1, in a Class AA quarterfinal. Brentwood (16-1-1) hosts No. 4 Whitman at 2 p.m. Monday.

Now, the significant feat.

Ever Torres' goal in the 74th minute gave top-seeded Brentwood a 3-0 lead. Torres, who also had two assists, is now tied with Jeff Reh (Rocky Point, 1982-85) for fifth all-time in most career goals in Suffolk. The senior forward has 72.

Then there was that milestone for Brentwood coach Ron Eden.

Eden became the eighth coach in Suffolk boys soccer history to win 300 games. Eden is 300-49-24 in 19 seasons as the Indians' head coach.

"I did not play one game of the 300 wins so it's really a credit to the kids more than anything," Eden said. "I owe a lot to the parents and club coaches because they played a role in mentoring our players before they even got to me. For me, this is a program accomplishment; not a coach's accomplishment."
