On Wednesday, Sept. 19, the varsity boys soccer team played a home game facing Warren Woods Tower. Despite the vigorous effort they put in, the Panthers were not able to bring it home. The game ended in defeat, with a score of 4-1 and a win for  Warren Woods Tower. Including this game, the boys have won three games, lost four, and tied for two.

During the first half, the team struggled, ending the period with no points on the board. However, after a thorough team talk with Coach Keith Marzec at halftime, they were able to play a better defensive game in the second half. Senior and goalie Matthew Dutkiewicz improved his blocks as the game progressed.

On the offensive side, senior Nick Craig was even able to capitalize on a penalty kick. Also in the second half, senior player Ian Major suffered an injury to the head, having to sit out for a few minutes. Nevertheless, Major was able to get back in the game and work even harder than before.

“In the first half, we did not mark up very well defensibly. In the second half, we made an adjustment and did a much better job,” Marzec said.
