The boys soccer team had their first loss to Gettysburg with a score of 2-0 last Tuesday.
Physical Education teacher and coach Brett Maxwell saw ways that the team could grow from the experience.
“Hopefully, we learned how to handle a little pressure and how to handle a little adversity. That was probably the first game this season… that we went down and had to play from behind, first game this season that we came out a little slow and they were taking it to us a little bit in the beginning, so hopefully we learned from that, and in future situations we can be able to handle it a little bit better,” said Maxwell.
This game was the first major loss for the boys team, and it caused their 10-0-1 record to suddenly become 10-1-1.
Junior defense-man Josh Smiley knew Gettysburg would be a tough team to beat.
“Honestly, I think we played decent. We just just need to match the intensity of Gettysburg; they’ve always had a strong team, and we just need to play at their level and play aggressive,” said Smiley.
The game definitely pointed out future goals for the Warriors.
“Yeah just finishing the opportunities that we do get and take advantage of the chances that we get and not let them go by,” said Smiley.
Sophomore defense-man Ben Wilson also saw some positives.
“I think that our wid mids did good, and we had a bunch one on one opportunities in the corners,” said Wilson.
Maxwell saw some strengths throughout the game as well.
“They fought hard till the end, so you know we ended up coming away with a loss, but it was for 80 minutes they played hard and you know had some energy out there,” said Maxwell.
The boys soccer team played West York on Tuesday and won the game with a score of 4-0.
