Loss to Leto ends boy’s soccer season
The boy’s soccer team started off strong in their first district game of the season against Armwood. They were in the lead, but the score was soon up to a tie by half-time. Both teams scored in the second half, forcing the game to go into overtime. No one was able to score, leaving the win up to penalty kicks. Unfortunately, this ended in a loss for the Terriers.
Although the team is disappointed for the season to be over so early, they express their excitement for next year.
“We’ll have 10 seniors next year if the roster is the same. So, we’ll be a lot more experienced. Next year is definitely our chance,” said Captain Andrew Miller.
A unanimous opinion for the team is their need to improve on their defense. “We give up too many cheap goals and end up relying on our forwards to do all the work,” said junior Russell Gardiner.
In order to improve their weak points, the team plans to hold mandatory conditioning next year before the season as well as pre-season games and extra conditioning during the season.
Looking back on the season, the team was most proud of their game against Leto. Not only was it senior night, but we had an amazing comeback that took a lot of heart,” said Gardiner.
