Sophomore midfielder Ayden Boss defends for his team. Last week, Boss fought hard to keep the ball from going into the goal in the last minute of the first half of his home game against Troy Buchanan on Sept. 17. “We should be able to grow as a team from this [win], and hopefully carry on the momentum into our next game.”

Last week on Sept. 17, the JV soccer team worked together to win its first GAC conference game against Troy Buchanan High School on their home field. The team was able to communicate well together on and off the field, and win their match 4-0.

Before this game, the boys had been struggling to get enough goals to make a win. However, this struggle proved to be beneficial, since it showed the team who should be playing what position, a key factor in their win against Troy.

“We had been on a losing streak of five games, so we needed this win,” sophomore Adam Painter said. “The team played really well together. We actually found our positioning, and passed pretty well. We worked well as a team and ended up scoring four goals.”

Over fall break, the team will play St. Dominic, Holt and Francis Howell.
