On Friday, Aug. 24, the boys soccer team took the field during their first home game of the regular season, which ended in a 5-1 defeat to Fort Zumwalt South.

Head coach Derek Schriewer and assistant coach Brian Dougherty are coaching the team this season. Co-captains this year are senior defender Noah Bay, senior midfielder and defender Michael Andrews and senior forward and center back Zach Subke.

The team is in the process of finding their rhythm as most players this season have never played varsity soccer.

“We’re young. We’re going to make mistakes,” Subke said. “We have a lot of young kids, so just getting them varsity experience is going to take a while.”

Goals for the season range from staying positive, improving defense and winning districts. They also are ready to take on new opponents in their district, including Borgia, Warrenton and Liberty.

“[It] would be nice to win against Liberty,” Andrews said. “We have the ability to play them five times this year, so we will be getting very familiar with them.”

Even though the team will face new trials this season, they remain optimistic and driven, not letting their goals slip their minds.

“It’s really going to depend on if we give up or not,” Andrews said. “If we play our hardest, with our full potential, we will give everyone a run for their money.”
