With spring break behind them, the Englewood High School girls soccer team moved quickly into action with the first of three non-league games April 2 as they continue preparation for the start of play against league opponents.
“I feel we will be a competitive team this season, even though our seven senior starters graduated in May,” Pirates coach Chris Kavinsky said. “We have talented players moving up from junior varsity as well as the players who saw varsity playing time last season, including our two seniors.”
Kavinsky said he is pleased with the team's start.
“We are 1-3 so far this season,” he said during the March 30 practice. “We lost a tough overtime game to St. Mary's and then played Grand Junction and Prospect Ridge, both very good soccer teams. The fact we have so many new players in the lineup, I am pleased with our overall play and I am very pleased with how our girls are learning to play together as a team. We will play hard this season and win games. Also, our players will get a lot of varsity experience so we will be an even better soccer team next season.”
The coach said his team will be talented in all areas.
“Our goalie is a letter winner who was in goal for us last year and we also have a solid defensive line ahead of her,” he said. “Our midfield is solid and we have a good attack line."
Megan Trail is a returning letter winner who will be on the attack line this season.
“I have been playing soccer since I was about 7,” she said. “I run cross country and play basketball but soccer is my favorite sport. I think I like it best because it is always fast-paced action and you have to play both offense and defense. I guess I like being on attack because I like to score goals.”
