The boys varsity soccer team suffered a heartbreaking season-ending loss to Caledonia with a final score of 1-0. After an incredible comeback season with a stretch of 8 out of 9 wins, FHC fell short of a district title shot and left it in the hands of the Fighting Scots.

The Rangers started the game unusually slow and Caledonia quickly took advantage of that by striking first. However, FHC cleaned up its mistakes instantly, with an incredible effort on both sides of the ball. The senior trio of Geoffrey Batterbee, Reese Walli, and Alec Norris provided the energy boost and the passion that FHC needed to stay in the game.

The Rangers came out very strong in the second half, they gave it their all trying to save their dream season. The seniors on both offense and defense really showed up despite the loss. Reese, along with junior Sammy Postlewait, gave the Rangers an enormous energy boost by increasing the effort on the field. 

 As the clock kept ticking and as the Rangers kept trying to find the back of the net, the chances for a win seemed slim. The defense of the Fighting Scots was too much for the Rangers to overcome and Caledonia ended FHC’s season by a final score of 1-0.

The Rangers finish their season off with a 10-8-1 record. The Rangers had their ups and downs, but this is definitely a step in the right direction for the future of this team and first-year head coach Caleb Postlewait. The future looks bright for the team, as they look to keep some of the starters and pull up some promising young talent from the JV team.
