A goal for the season to reach counties and districts has been reached by the Red Lion boys soccer team.
The team, with a current record of 12-6, continues to push their way through districts. Success was enjoyed from early on as the team won their first four games, and the success only grew from there.
“We have achieved this by working hard in practices,” Coach Mike Watt said. “Each player understands their role not the team.”
Several players have stood out and helped lead the team to success.
“Definitely Ben Warner for being our leading scorer,” Coach Watt said. “Cam Gebhart has been a solid defender and Brysen Smith has played multiple positions and played them well.”
Watt also recognized goalkeeper Brock Gould for only giving up eight goals out of 16 games.
As the season draws to a close, Watt hopes that the senior players continue to enjoy soccer in any form whether that be playing, coaching or even just watching.
Senior Ben Warner’s advice to is to work hard and never give up even when things are not going great.
“Enjoy it while it lasts,” Warner said. “The time really flies by.”
In three words, Coach Watt describes his team as being hard-working, fearless and very talented. It is all of these traits that makes for a successful team.
The boys’ soccer team placed in the final eight teams after defeating Reading in the District tournament on Oct. 25. The team’s season ended with a loss in the quarterfinals against Elizabethtown.
