Head Soccer Coach
All three Gardner Edgerton High School men’s teams were in action Thursday night against Shawnee Mission West. C-team fought hard but came away with another 2-3 lose. They have lost multiple 1 goal games to start the season. It is great to see them be very competitive regardless of who they are playing. Goals were scored by Ryan Beane and Kalven Lokaphone. JV played absolutely beautiful soccer in a 3-1 win. The correct way to play soccer seemed to click in their heads last night and it was a lot of fun to watch. We had a goal called back and hit the post a few times or the score would have been much higher. Goals scored by Kyle Haunisch, Landon Crump and Matt Lime with Isaac Hopkins picking up an assist. Varsity, playing a final four contender and down two starters, also seemed to have it click in their heads how to play the correct way. It was very encouraging and a lot of fun to watch which now can allow us to move forward with our progression of building more things in. SMW punished us on every little mistake as we ended with a 0-6 result. We played the best soccer of the season, they just capitalized to perfection all night. A very frustrating rewarding night to play so well and walk away with that result. We look to build on our style of play Tuesday against ON.
