The fans were cheering and the sun was beaming at the boys varsity soccer game on Aug. 26. The team played the Highland Trojans and lost with a score of 3-2.

“We definitely could’ve played a better game yesterday. The team could have put out more effort on the defensive half of the field,” Kyle Kil (11) said.

Kil scored the team’s first goal of the game and led the team in scoring along with teammate Niko Kolintzas (9), who scored a goal at the end of the game.

“Niko had a great shot at the end of the game; he has a lot to offer and is really good as a freshman,” Nathan Puch (10) said.

In the last few minutes of the game, Kil was injured and was taken out for the rest of the game, but will continue to play for the rest of the season.

“I got headbutted in the face when I went up for a header. I had to get stitches,” Kil said.

The next game is on Wednesday Aug. 28 at Michigan City.

“The rest of the reason should go well if we put in more effort. We have great potential though,” Michael McClelland (10) said.
