Boys soccer lost 4-1 for the second game in a row against Blue Valley West on Thursday, Sept. 21.

The suspension of many varsity players caused some of the junior varsity team to step up and play in their place. Senior Kyle Franklin felt the effect of missing some of his usual teammates because they haven’t played in a varsity game yet.

“The lack of manpower that we had with the varsity players just wasn’t fully there with the JV,” Franklin said.

According to head coach Arlan Vomhof, the JV players did great considering their circumstances.

“I think our JV guys did really well tonight. Especially being thrown into the fire,” Vomhof said.

The Jaguars were tied until the second half when Blue Valley took the lead. Sophomore Ian Carroll said the second half didn’t go as well as the first.

“I felt exhausted [during] the second half. I felt like I was able to work more the first half,” Carroll said.  “I scored a decent penalty [kick] in the first half, so the first half was definitely better.”

As time goes on, Carroll feels better about going into each game.

“I’m not really getting nervous at these games anymore,” Carroll said. “[You] just kind of go out there and do your job.”

Franklin approaches each new game with the same attitude, no matter what happened in previous games.

“I go into every game [with] just a clean slate,” Franklin said. “[It’s a] different game [with] new players. I don’t let it affect me.”

With a 5-2 record, Carroll feels confident about the season thus far.

“I feel like 5-2 is really solid for the first seven games,” Carroll said. “It’s way better than last year and I think we are going to continue to do well.”

Their next game is on Tuesday, September 26 against Blue Valley Northwest.
