The boys soccer team beat Bishop Alemany High School 1-0 at Ted Slavin Field on Friday. This win advances the Wolverines’ Mission League record to 4-2 and their overall record to 4-5-1. 

The squad’s one goal came during the first half, when forward Milo Kiddugavu ’22 dribbled the ball up the field and gave forward Grant Bishop ’21 the assist. The Wolverines were also strong on the defensive end as they stopped the Warriors from scoring any goals throughout the match. 

Although this victory marks a three-game win streak for the squad, the Wolverines have lost more games than they have won this season. After 10 senior players graduated at the end of last season, the Wolverines have had to adjust to a new roster with 13 new players and the new Boys Soccer Program Head, Michael Erush. 

Despite this victory, forward Magnus Ferrell ’22, who was unable to play due to an injury,  said that he was disappointed in his team’s performance. 

“The game was frustrating watching from the sidelines,” Ferrell said. “We did win but we kept it way too close against a much weaker opponent. I think the team needs to improve on challenging the opposition better and being stronger physically.” 

The squad looks to continue its win streak in its next match against Loyola High School at home on April 19. Ferrell said he envisions his team being successful this season despite some of the early challenges the squad has faced. 

“We have a strong opportunity to do well this year, and I just hope our team is played and coached to our strengths rather than forcing something through our weaknesses,” Ferrell said.
