Boys Soccer Shoots For Their First Win

The Sequoits fought hard for a 3-0 victory against the Auburn Knights.


The varsity soccer team came out determined after a disappointing season last year. With a record of 3-20 and they are looking to better their record from last year. The boys soccer team had their first game Wednesday night against Rockford Auburn. The boys came away with a convincing 3-0 win to kick off the new season.

“Starting out the season seeing [them] having fun and playing as a team was really great to watch because they earned the win,” head coach Michael McDermott said.

Sophomore Brock Jurinek scored not only the first goal of the game, but of the season. Following the first goal Daxton Foote headed in the second goal thanks to an assist by senior captain Adam Lynn. Sophomore Remigijus Ivanovas then secured the win with one final goal in the second half.

“We worked our hardest till the final minute and got the win we deserved,” Ivanovas said.

The boys are headed to the Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA) tournament this weekend looking to defend their back-to-back championships.

“I feel that we have really good energy going into this weekend’s tournament after last nights win,” Foote said.

The boys are working super hard to keep improving everyday and are looking to keep up this momentum for the rest of the season.
