Boys Varsity Soccer Preseason

westmoor

Varsity Bearcats play Westmoor High School.

With the Soccer season racing around the corner, the Boys Teams is excited to compete again. Last year, the boys Varsity team did a good job, holding a positive record of eight wins, six losses and only two ties overall. Senior Clay Gee “has hope they can improve their record from last year by working together as a team more.”

Junior Sebastian Lopez, keeper for the Varsity team believes they “can definitely improve upon last year as they didn’t lose that many seniors so their starting team is still very solid and with practice they can become a top team in their league”.

This year they have many strong players on the team to help them improve their record. Senior Aaron Baca who plays midfield helps on both offense and defense, Sebastian Lopez who plays keeper protects the goal from the offense of the other team, senior Gabe Huerta, a forward who leads the offense, and senior Grant Rueca who plays left back is the last line of defense before the keeper. These are just some of the talented players this year who can help push for a winning record.

As of right now, tryouts are still taking place so the team may be able to find more talent to recruit. They need to show up ready to play, wearing cleats, shin guards and shorts. Varsity and JV are separated so the players tryout for the team they want to make. If the coach sees Varsity is too hard or JV is too easy he moves players around to fit their level of skill. This process creates two solid teams and improves the chances of all players playing at their level.

Some not so well known rules of soccer are that when a defensive player passes the ball back to their keeper, that keeper cannot use their hands to touch the ball. Another rule is that the players must throw the ball in within six seconds. It is considered a red card foul, if an offensive player fouls the final defender that, which results in a kick out, and if a player gets two warning cards, which are yellow, that is equal to a red card and a kick out.

The Varsity Boys first preseason game is versus Monta Vista High School in Cupertino on Saturday, Dec 3. at 3 p.m.
