Centreville Boys' Soccer Season Kicks Off
The 'Cats took a win on their first game of the season, against W.T. Woodson.
Centreville High School's soccer teams opened regular season play last week. Both teams are looking for good seasons behind strong senior classes augmented by solid juniors and promising younger players.
Due to scheduling conflicts, the boys played at W.T. Woodson on March 13 while the girls were idle. Woodson's boys are garnering a lot of attention as one of the early favorites in the region, but the Wildcats showed they should not be overlooked, knocking home the lone goal of the game when Johnny Rios laid a hard shot off his left foot into the lower right corner of the goal in the game's 60th minute.
For the final 20 minutes the 'Cats, and particularly the back line of Sean Kelly, Matt Hambright, Chris Winans, Phil Falke and GK Jason Hoernke, staved off the speedy Cavaliers and preserved the one goal win.
On March 14, the team played their home opener, welcoming the Yorktown Patriots to Centreville. While the boys played hard, the speedy Yorktown team was able to capitalize off a 'Cats mistake to score the only goal of the night.
Boasting 11 seniors, the Wildcats, behind second-year coach Steve Lee, look like a team to watch this spring!
