The Westport boys varsity soccer team will look to an added year of experience to help them get through the tough schedule that is Division II of the Northern Soccer League.
“Six veteran seniors, Lloyd Staats, Ryan Davis, John Doyle, Tyrel Tryon, Jesse Misarski, and James Moricette, will lead the Westport boys varsity soccer team in 2013,” Head coach Mike Davis said. “Other key returning players include junior defender Matt Sherman, sophomore goalkeeper Sam Napper, and sophomore midfielders Thomas Mero and Anderson Gay. New additions to the team include senior Chris Clark, sophomore Connor Martin, and freshmen Wyatt Gough, Sam Staats, and Schylar Kurth. The 2013 squad has been training hard in preparation for a fun and challenging schedule.”
The Eagles roster includes Ryan Davis, John Doyle, Chris Clark, Jesse Misarski, James Moricette, Lloyd Staats, Tyrel Tryon, Matt Sherman, Connor Martin, Sam Napper, Thomas Mero, Anderson Gay, Wyatt Gough, Sam Staats and Schylar Kurth.
Davis will be assisted by John Doyle.
The Westport girls varsity soccer team will look to a mixture of experience and youth as they start the 2013 season.
“We want to play as a team and improve with each game played,” coach Brad Rascoe said. “Our team is a mixture of youth and experience and so far they are playing well together.”
The back third of the field will be a key for a successful season for the Eagles.
“Our defense will be better this year,” Rascoe said. “Communication and endurance will be a key. The players have to talk to each other and learn to replace immediately.”
In the front third, Rascoe said that the team will have to learn how to finish in front of the net.
“Our offense has to build up a little more,” Rascoe said. “We have scorers but putting it all together is key.”
The Eagles roster includes seniors Emily Rascoe, Brendee Russell, Sarah Looby, Hannah Looby and Megan Sudduth; juniors Yiran Li, Ellie Schwoebel, Cheyenne Cramer and Sydney Mitchell; sophomores Lucy Misarski and Kristen Orr; freshman Chloe Mitchell and eighth grader Hannah Schwoebel.
