Coach Evans’ Mod Squad

The Modified Soccer team is made up a group of solid players who played in recreational leagues and travel leagues before being able to play for the school this September. The team has only  lost to one team, Berne-Knox Westerlo. They look forward to a re-match in the near future. They are proud about tying with Ballston Spa, a team in a different league, in a scrimmage.

There have been some individual conquests for the different players.  Aidan Reekie-Mell, who plays left side, says assisting Colin Anderson to score has been a win for him. 7th grader Chris Maher  plays outside right wing. His season highlight was crossing the ball to Adam Hay who scored a header. Sweeper Eben Perkins’ high point was the shut out against McKeel. 

These season peaks were preceded by some hard work and growth. Maher has improved in his ability to use his teammates to pass to. Perkins pointed out Maher also now has a “crazy kick.” Reekie-Mell has become more strategic and better about finding space.  Perkins has gotten better about containing people on defense and “not stabbing.”

On the field, the team appreciates scorekeeper Shay Evan and manager and ball boys, Simon Evans and Jacob Rumsey. Off the field team bonding seems to be about raucous bus rides back from away games.
