The Kayhi boys soccer team have their first home games this weekend against Thunder Mountain. Last year the Kings went 4-0 against the Falcons, going 7-10 overall.
Because of the regional tournament and spring break, many of the varsity players have not gotten quality practice time. Junior Sullivan Schulz thinks that the friday game might be more difficult, but that the team will win both games.
“We might be a little rusty because of the little practice we’ve had together,” said Schulz. ”But I think we are definitely going to win these first games.”
Senior Jake Taylor has used basketball as his way to prepare for the upcoming season.
“Basketball is always helpful for me because it prepares me to be physically conditioned for soccer.” said Taylor.
Taylor and the rest of the team are ready to face Thunder Mountain this weekend. Even though they have had very little practice time together, they are confident in their skills.
“I think we are ready for a battle,” said Taylor. “TM always plays physical, and we will have to be ready for that. But our team is ready.”
Senior Mark Jasper said that the team needs to pass and communicate if they want to pull of a win against TM. He expects the team to start the season 2-0.
“I think this weekend the game will be tougher than previous years because we lost our entire varsity line up last year,” said Jasper. “ Still, I think we should be able to pull of two wins.”
