Grizzly Guy Soccer
– By Zak Zamora –
The soccer team was a little less than successful but everyone on the team enjoyed it through out the season. Our record was not very good, but our team stayed together for the most part. We started with roughly 22 players, by the end we had 12. I quit two weeks before the end because I was just not having fun with it, soccer is not my sport. But I knew that the rest of the kids that stayed through the whole season had a bond. Most of them had been playing together since elementary school. They have a deep passion for soccer, and the reason they stay together is for their shared enjoyment of the game and each other. For the most part our games were the same. We started out the first half great, the team played off mistakes and scored well. When we lost we lost big, when we won, we won bigger. Or at least it seemed like it. The last half of our games we lost because we had zero substitutes for our starters.
Our plus sides were our forwards and our goalie. We had an all league forward and our goalie was phenomenal. When we were scored on it was rarely his fault. The odd thing about soccer is, a person would think that when your scored on it’s the goalie’s fault, but it rarely is. Our forward was super fast and scored on fast break plays down the field. Compared to last year we were much better off.
“Last years seniors were good but this years seniors made us more complete as a team”. –Tayler Gardener. This was a result of playing together for a long time. The seniors last year had been relatively new to the group of kids. This years bond showed to be significantly stronger because we played much better than last year.
