The boys’ varsity soccer team took the field in their first home game of the season against a well-matched Sherman Middle School. Even though the score of the match looks lopsided, the match was all but such. This young varsity team played with such courage and determination, leaving the pitch with their heads held high and proud of their efforts.
From the opening whistle at kick off, our team demonstrated amazing work ethic. We unfortunately fell behind quickly from Sherman’s counter attack with long ball to a beautiful chip over our keeper by their lone striker. The team stayed positive and pressed in every opportunity they could get. Throughout the first half, our long ball play continued to our offense and seemed to be the tone of the game both ways. Although both teams had opportunities, unfortunately Sherman was able to finish with more goals in net than WMS. We regrouped at the half, and came out strong dominating the second half. The positive cheering from our fans gave our players the energy needed to push forward. We continued with a long ball game and found the back of the net once, despite numerous scoring opportunities that began from the fullbacks up to our forwards. There are so many positives for this young team to take away from this match against an older Sherman team. The team learned a lot about the importance of a strong work ethic and positive sportsmanship. We are very proud of these boys, and thank all who came out to support us. We look forward to our next match after Outdoor Ed. Final score 1-4
