The boys soccer team fell to De Soto in a game with a score of 1-0 Thursday, Oct. 28, finishing their season with a 15-1-1 record. 

The team believed that they had a shot at winning regionals and saw the loss as unlucky, according to senior Ryan Wingerd.

“I anticipated that we were going to win that game and be the regional champions,” Wingerd said. “We had many shots on goal, but couldn’t seem to find the back of the net. They had one shot that managed to sneak by, it was unlucky on our part.”

Adding to the bad luck, the team played a man down due to a red card given towards the start of the game Wingerd explained.

“The red card only 20 minutes into the game hurt because we had to play the rest of the game down a man,” Wingerd said. “We lost a key player in the defense.”

Despite the unlucky last game that cost the team regionals, the boys had an impressive season according to senior Carson Day. 

“I’m proud of how hard the team worked and how close we became with each other throughout the season,” Day said. “From morning practices, weekend practices and team dinners. We spent a lot of time together.”

Also proud, Wingerd remains content looking back on the season.

“We worked hard and fought everyday to get to that spot,” Wingerd said. “Winning the Sunflower League Championship stood out because we are a 5A school playing in the 6A Sunflower League.”

All and all, the boys remained proud of their work this year and still feel the season was a success, according to Day. 

“I wouldn’t change anything,” Day said. “Although we lost in the playoffs it was my favorite season to be a part of, we performed really well and won a lot of games.”
