JV boys soccer earns winning streak
JV boys soccer are 8-3 (6-2 in district play) after a Feb. 20 win over Riverside High School. The boys are now on a four-game win streak after losing two consecutive games. On a team of mainly freshmen, the few sophomores are the ones who push the team.
“Playing with mainly freshmen, you have to step up and be a leader. Us upperclassmen have the experience and have to help teach the young ones to adapt to the play of high school soccer,” sophomore Roberto Flores said.
Flores said being more experienced he has to put the intensity for the team and the younger ones always match it. Flores also said he enjoys his freshmen teammates and he wouldn’t trade them for anyone else. Although losing two games out of eight, Flores encourages to push the team harder in the chase of the district title.
“Practice makes perfect, so we need continue practicing hard and push ourselves more,” said freshmen Ivar Arroyo said.
Arroyo plays forward on the team and is responsible for a fair amount of the goals scored throughout the season. Arroyo said his team gives him great opportunities to score. He just returns the favor by putting the ball in the net. Arroyo’s goals for the season are the same as the rest of the teams, hoping to win the district title.
“To win the title we have to be perfect from here on out,” sophomore Arturo Garcia said.
Garcia was described as a leader by most of his teammates. Not only is Garcia a leader but having the most experience on the team makes him a key player.
“I believe the team has was it needs to be district champions and will push to become the true champions we are,” Garcia said.
