District+Dreams

We honestly pretty much dominated the whole game.”

— Lucas Skeen

 

This year the boys varsity soccer team went to the District Championship game. They lost against Orchard Farm in the final game, but beat St. Charles West for the third and final time in the semifinals.

“We beat St. Charles West in the first game 5-0, and we beat St. Charles West in the second game 2-0,” Coach Todd Rakonick said prior to the semi-final game.

Rakonick was confident they would beat St. Charles West a third time with full team effort. The team went into the semi-final game confident, it was the third game they played against St. Charles West this season.

“We definitely learned their style of play, and figured out how to combat that,” senior Connor Russell said. 

 

This made the semifinal game much easier for the Varsity soccer team, they left the game proud. 

“We honestly pretty much dominated the whole game. After the first 20 minutes we pretty much possessed the ball for the rest of the game,” freshman goalie Lucas Skeen added.

 

The team was disappointed they didn’t win the final game, but very grateful for their coach’s help in making it this far into districts.

“Our coach gave us support and encouragement throughout the season, and made sure we had fun at every game,” Russell added.
