Todd Cooper takes a ball out to midfield after Kenston practices and tries his luck with free kicks from distance. Lucky or not Tuesday in a CVC Chagrin Division match against neighborhood rival West Geauga, the senior defender helped the host Bombers go the distance for a nice result.
Kenston got goals from Cooper and Dylan Heun in a 2-0 victory, getting back on track in league play after falling to Wickliffe by the same scoreline Sept. 10.
The Bombers (5-2-2, 2-2) were efficient and pacey in the attack in an impressive performance.
This year has been a year of change for the Kenston High School soccer team. With eleven seniors gone and a new Head Coach, Josh Sladick, the boys need to adjust this year. Josh Sladick has won the race to be the new head coach of Kenston after a long process of many applications and interviews. To help the school get to know Coach Sladick, I interviewed him at a recent practice. Here is what Josh had to say:
"When did you start playing soccer?"
"I started playing soccer at age 5 for AYSO in Twinsburg. As I grew up I went on to play for our city travel team called Twinsburg A.C., Club soccer with Everest S.C. and Ohio Select F.C., ODP, High School and College."
