“I thought the team played really well,” Chris Field, head coach, said. “It was a good game for an opener.”

Senior Michael Hulse made two goals, as did sophomore Jorge Ornelas and senior Jeovanny Polito. Senior David Sanchez made one goal along with sophomore Keegan McCormick and freshman Adrian Ramos.

“Everybody played so well, it’s hard to pick one major player and the offense was well-rounded,” Field said. “It’s tough because we’re so young this year and we’re looking at starting three or four freshman.”

The team’s game against Entiat on Saturday, March 21 was canceled due to Entiat canceling their entire season.

As of press time, the team had not yet played at home against Brewster but Field said he expected a tough game.

“I think Brewster only graduated two seniors and they were the team to beat last year,” he added.

On Thursday, March 26, the team will play at Oroville at 5 p.m. and Field said it was hard to say how the team will do against them.

“We lost to them 1-0 last year,” he added. “We’ll play well and be competitive but it’s a matter of executing the fundaments. If we control the ball, we’ll control the game but it’s hard to say how it’ll go.”

On Saturday, March 28, the boys will play away against Cashmere at 11 a.m.

“This is Cashmere’s first year in the league, so I haven’t heard anything about them,” Field said. “I’m not sure if they’re strong or anything.”
