WGHS Boys' Soccer came out on top against George Walton Academy, our cross-town rival, with the result of 8-2. The team was confident they were going to win before the game and that is the great mentality you need to have to take on opposing teams.
As an athlete you have to prepare for a game, and some people have a routine they do to prepare. For example we asked Aidan Bird what he does to prepare for a game, and he states, “I get ready for every game by preparing mentally and not eating too much but enough to give me energy for the game.”
During the game some of our players noticed what they had to work on personally and that is what Diego Villanueva noticed he stated that “I need to work on being more positive because I admit I do yell at my teammates, but I only want what's best for them, and anything I can do to help also means I help the team.”
Jean Franco believed that they won because “[they] communicated well and finished [their] chances, and at the start of the second half [they] did even better controlling the game and having possession of the ball most of the time.”
We also asked the spectators and coach questions, and here is what Cristian Morales said, “I think the most exciting part of the game was when Jean Franco the goalkeeper made a back-to-back save and saved us.” Cristian also believed that “it was a very one sided game because by the time it was half time, we were already winning 4-1”.
Coach Walker had a couple of things to say about the game as well. He stated that the team did well on “conceding a penalty in the opening minutes of the game, I was pleased to see they were not rattled by going a goal down. The boys did well to put eight goals past them, especially given that we had not scored in three games. The camaraderie and sportsmanship was pleasing too.”
Some improvements Coach Walker implemented: “During the game it became evident that two of their players in particular were having some success getting off shots. Accordingly, our defense was instructed to move faster to the ball and to get in front of aforementioned players to prevent them getting their shots off.
Coach Walker did an outstanding job coming home with a victory and coaching his players. There will be more games to come and more things to learn. The team will continue to grow together and accomplish many more achievements throughout the season.
