Boys’ Soccer looking for Big Improvement

Posted on October 8, 2013 by


The division champs from a year ago, the Fleetwood boys’ soccer team, are looking to win the division again.

 “We will win counties this year.  We will take the season game by game,” freshman Kale Follweiler said.

As of 8 October, the boys were 11-3-2 overall for the season. In league play, they were unbeaten with a record of 2-0.

“We are a way better team than what our record says,” Junior Mitch Kinek said.

The start of the season for the boys was a rough one. Having now played the majority of the season, the boys are starting to shock teams. They surprised many with a 2-0 win over Hamburg.

“This really got us confident that we can beat good teams and will carry it on,” junior Isaac Cook said.

After losing last year in the first round of counties, the boys are looking to redeem themselves.

“We didn’t come to play that game, and it showed,” goalkeeper Keaton Moyer said.

This year the boys have really high hopes going into the playoffs and being successful. If they win their division, they would qualify for districts.

“We should win our division without a doubt,” senior Doug Karpeuk said.

The boys have not had much success in the last couple of years, but all of them are sure this year is turning out to be a great year.

“Coming off a season where we should have gone farther than we did, we are looking to have a great season,” junior Matt Hook said.

Only four starters from last year are returning this year, but this group really knows how to play together. Growing up, they all played together. Junior Joe Kinek cites this as a big advantage for Fleetwood.

Fleetwood does not suffer many shots against them during a game, with three at most during the season

 “Our defense is a very strong group of guys, with a speedy Nick Hope in the center,” Wyatt Pensinger said.

With a combination of a strong defense and growing offense, Fleetwood looks to go far this season.
