The boys JV soccer team kicked off its season last week with two highly competitive games. The team was set up to play the East Kentwood Falcons and the Grand Haven Buccaneers, two powerhouse teams, and sadly fell short of a victory in both. 

The team opened up its season taking on the Falcons, and despite their best efforts, they lost 5-1. This was a respectable outcome considering the fact that it was the team’s first opportunity to play with each other just two days after tryouts were completed. However, the Rangers were able to knock in one goal on a breakaway in the last few seconds of the game, with freshman Myles Shoham putting the ball in the net. The goal put the Rangers on the board and allowed for a strong finish to the game. 

Next, the team took on the Buccaneers in another high-intensity game. The Rangers weren’t able to come out on top in this game either and fell to Grand Haven with a score of 4-0. With very strong defensive effort and solid attack, the area that hurt the Rangers the most was winning and keeping possession of the 50/50 balls. 

The Rangers are picking up a bit of momentum and improving day-by-day, and the results will soon follow.
