Boys soccer ready to go

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

“He’s (Garland) looking to play up top as a striker, and he’s done a great job for us,” Myers said. “He’s given us a lot of looks that we didn’t expect to have this year.”

As usual with Washington boys soccer, the expectations couldn’t be higher, but Myers knows his team will have to be very good in all aspects of the game to get the results they desire with less talent than in years past. With just one week until the season opener at Princeton, one important and hotly contested position battle has been at goalie between sophomore Nick Gray and senior Brooks Brown, which looks to be a dead heat at this time.

“We need to focus in on defense, and being a high intensity team where we are constantly attacking the other team and applying pressure, so that there is no time for our opponents to pick up their heads and turn with the ball,” Myers said. We are going to have to show up every game and battle every game. We can go a long way depending how they work together. I expect to win the Big 8 conference and the sectional championship.”

Washington Catholic

Following one of the best regular seasons in the program’s history, the Washington Catholic Cardinals are reloading for the school’s second sectional championship. The Cardinals lost eight seniors to graduation including standouts Colton Reed (45 goals), Brantly Smith (25 goals and 20 assists) and Christian Neace (20 goals and 30 assists) from a team that finished the season with a 16-1-1 record. Washington Catholic coach Wayne Neace said the team is young, but hungry to pick up where the 2012 team left off.

“We lost a lot of power,” Neace said. “We’re young, we’re small, but we’re hoping that with kids with a lot of energy that we’ll be OK. It will be a learning year, but we’re hoping to build not only for this year, but for next year. We have a lot of juniors, and we’re going to focus on those guys, and we’ve got a couple of solid seniors too.”
