The boys soccer team fell to Cumberland 1-0 in a hard fought battle during a Division I home game on Wednesday night. The Huskies seemingly scored first as sophomore midfielder Tom Loiselle blasted a penalty kick into the goal from 35 yards out. But the officials said the kick was supposed to be an indirect kick, so the goal was taken back.
The Huskies have lost all eight of their games in Division I this season.
“It’s been a rough start,” said senior co-captain Jesse Wilson. “Honestly at the end of the day, we just have to stay positive and keep doing what we are doing.”
Though the losses and playing in Division I have been difficult for the team, they are trying to stay positive and have fun.
“After a loss we try to share laughs and stay positive,” said co-captain Maddox Canario. “We realize that if we are having fun it’s a good thing at the end of the day.”
Head coach Gavin Ward and the Huskies are working hard on their game despite the start.
“We are working on movement on and off the ball, switching fields and trying to rip off more shots,” said Canario.
And the team is working on moving at a quicker pace.
“We want to make quicker decisions and make sure that we are diligent. We are just trying to remain positive and see some growth this season.” He said. “We just want to move on from there and start fresh for the last half of the season.”
Senior co-captain Talan Aguiar likes the team’s camaraderie.
“We come together as a team,” he said. “We all get along really well. We are friends and we all hang out and I really like that about this team. It helps to keep us positive.”
Last week after an early practice the Huskies grabbed a ball and had their own scrimmage.
“We had fun,” said Aguiar. “It helps to keep the team together. Once in a while. It’s something that we like to do.”
