After playing three games against Walkersville, North Hagerstown, and Thomas Johnson they are 0-3. Obstacles included playing only three games so far due to weather delays and a young growing team.

Despite the loss, there were bright spots for the team moving forward. An outstanding performance in goal from senior Ethan Brohawn helped LHS stay in the game.

“There is still a lot of confidence among us players, it was a close game. I think if we play them again, we could beat them,” said junior Chase Breck.

There is plenty of improvement moving forward.

“I think we played well for our first game as a team, but I think we need more offense next game and would like to score a goal,” said Brohawn.

The JV boys soccer team had a great game. They were able to win against Walkersville’s team 2-1.

The second game of the season for the boys varsity team was against North Hagerstown on September 21. This was a tight match up with a heartbreaking last second goal for North Hagerstown to send them to overtime. North Hagerstown would go on to win the game 2-1.

In the Hagerstown game, Johnny Argueta (4) scored the first goal of the season.

“It was a tough loss, It’s rough to get scored on in the last second,” said junior Michael Davis.

The third game of the season on September 28 was against Gov. Thomas Johnson High School at home.  The game ended as 0-2.

Varsity hopes  to improve on their two wins last Covid shortened season.
