On a cold Tuesday night, boys varsity soccer took on their second regular season game at the Walkersville Lions home field. Just 30 seconds into the game the Lions took the lead with an easy goal that shook the Lancers and got them off their game.

At the end of the half the Lancers were down 3-0 and had 3 shots on goal, but could not capitalize. Coach Brain Johnson left it up to the captains–Christian Nolan, Luciano Iocco, and Lukas Snyder–to figure out what the team needed to do. Everyone pitched in their ideas and came out with a new energy in the second half.

As the second half began, the team was more agressive, physical, and poised. They got many chances to score, but again, could not capitalize. Walkersville wound up winning 4-0. The Lancers went home with another upsetting loss just after losing to the Westminster Owls on September 4.

Right Midfielder Ethan Butehorn said, “The first half of the game, we seemed a bit slow. After the first goal it slowed our speed of play and that allowed them to play around us, and after the team meeting, the whole team was working like never before. They were using every opportunity to push the ball up and get chances. The outcome would looked better if we played like that both halves.”

The boys team lost many seniors last year, so the rebuilding stage is underway. The team has a total of 23 players, and only 8 players are seniors. Although they stand 0-2 on this season, it´s still early. The young soccer team still needs to find their chemistry with one another.

Their next game is September 13 against the Frederick Cadets.
