Antioch’s Boys varsity soccer team had a game at home this past Tuesday, Sept. 7 facing a highly ranked Lake Forest team.

Lake Forest went up first with an early goal; however, senior Victor Manke answered with a quick goal to tie it up at the end of the first half. Lake Forest had an answer of their own, scoring two goals which the Sequoits were unable to make up for.

Throughout the game, the boys had their ups and downs. 

“Obviously it didn’t go our way,” senior Evan Vasquez said. “ They are out running us, passing around us, we left marks open and [we had] a few mistakes in the back they capitalized on.”

The game was very frustrating for the players knowing they could be better, but it was also frustrating for the coaches. 

“We need to improve [by] fewer mental mistakes as a program from beginning to end,” varsity head coach Michael McDermott said. “We need guys to take ownership for their mistakes and compete and have teammates that trust them, otherwise they’re not going to be able to grow as a team.” 

Having everyone on the same page this early in the season is always a good sign. As long as they are all willing to work, they will be able to achieve their end goals this season by working hard in practice and working as a team.

Team goals and personal goals go hand in hand; Everyone’s personal goals can help the team.

“I would like to have five goals and five assists on the year and I don’t want to cause a goal to be scored,” Manke said.

Surely, the team will continue to improve on their mistakes and they will get in the winning column and stay there for the rest of the season.
