Boys soccer ready to go

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

Neace said the Cardinals will depend on seniors Brody Wilson and Josh Fiscus, along with Dylan Walker and Thomas Bradley, who are new to the soccer program. Wilson is a four-year starter for the Cardinals, who will try to take over the leadership mantle vacated by Reed, Smith and Christian Neace. The offense will look a little different, but Neace said the team will try to get up and down the field.

“We still have a little bit of firepower,” Neace said. “We have Blaine Fuhs, a solid junior, an Olympic Development Player, who plays travel out of Evansville and he brings a lot of experience and ball skills to our team. Between him (Fuhs) and Brody (Wilson) — we’ll try to form the team around those two and try to run them down the center. We have a player in sophomore Zach Taylor, who’s also played travel ball down in Evansville — I’m expecting a lot out of him this year. If they get it all together, I think we’ll be a solid team.”

There has been a drop off in talent for Washington Catholic, but for Neace the expectations stay the same.

“Our No. 1 goal every year is to win the Blue Chip conference,” Neace said. “The next goal is to win the sectional. Our knowledge of the game, and speed of the game. They aren’t as experienced as the crew I had last year. Those guys last year knew when to pass, when to dribble. We have to learn that — we have to know when to get rid of it. We really try to play a possession game, and we’ve been putting that into their heads this year. I think a couple games into the year will really tell us where we are at.”
