“Senior night is always a challenge of some sort. The starting lineup is different, sometimes you have to remind player that while it’s important to honor the seniors, we also have a game to play.
But our kids played really well. And I’m so proud of them for taking what we’ve learned from this losing skid and put it to good use. I really wanted to have a chance to recognize the seniors for their years of service and their next chapter and typically, we do that towards the end of the season. But this year, when every day we practice or get to play is a gift, we decided to have it early and it paid off!!”
Our seniors were the reason we played tonight but two juniors combined on all 3 goals.
“Jack McIntyre and Dylan Prater are playing together so well right now. I’m glad those two are getting on so well in and off the field. They are the motor of this offense. Without their play and grit, we would struggle to score more than we already do.”
The jags previous high score in games this season was 2.
“Getting that third goal was big for us. Not just to seal the win against a talented and well coached LSN side but also to show our guys that it’s possible! I know you his offense can be incredibly dangerous but the boys needed to see it too “
Defense played huge too. Senior Danny Leon in goal had some spectacular Dave’s including a late penalty kick that could have brought the game back within one.
Our back line was great tonight. LSN has speed and can fire shots from anywhere in our half. Our back line and midfield did a great job of keeping them less dangerous than they could have been and Danny stepped up big in several occasions to keep the ball out of the net throughout the second half.
JV score BSS 1-0 over LSN
Jags are 2-4 (1-0 in conference) and ply two more conference games this week.
Wednesday and Thursday at LSW and Park Hill, respectively.
