The Boys Varsity Soccer team has been dominating whoever they have faced these first couple weeks of the season. The boys started off their season strongly, winning the first game versus Eastlake North High School four goals to one. Following a heart-breaking defeat to the number three team in the area, Solon, the boys have been undefeated in the past three games. With nagging injuries, like senior Cole Cannon's broken hand the boys handled Olmsted Falls High School one to zero at home. Lucas Hadar said, "The team looks really good this year, and they have the talent to keep improving." The team will travel to Saint Ignatius High School Wednesday, September 10th to play the best team in the area.
Buzzer beaters are somewhat common in the basketball world, but, in the low-scoring game of soccer, not so much.
After 79 minutes, 59 seconds of scoreless soccer on Saturday evening, Solon had one last chance for victory when the Comets hosted Kenston at Stewart Field.
It was one of the wildest finishes ever, Solon head coach Ryan Conner said.
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."
