Boys Varsity Soccer takes a great win at Westerville South
The boys soccer team had their first game of the school year last Tuesday against Westerville South. The varsity team took the win and started the year strong, beating the Wildcats in a close 3-2 game. Goals were scored by seniors Blake Sawicki and Josh Govine. The boys have been getting ready for this season since January and it’s paid off well.
Sophomore Griffin Csiszarik showed his excitement for his varsity counterparts and where he thinks the team shined and could have improved.
“We did very well, we got the win overall and we were aggressive, so we came out on top… I think we could have improved a little, our ball control was a bit off and we had some new players still getting used to it, but we got through it,” Csiszarik said.
The team had some trouble getting into rhythm during the preseason tournaments, but it’s shown that isn’t a problem anymore. Freshman Colin Walters and Brian Watkins are looking to be valuable players to the varsity team.
Senior Tyler Stitzel thinks the team could have improved and expanded their lead.
“We had a lot of scoring opportunities that we just couldn’t finish, and those would have stretched our lead further,” Stitzel expressed.
The boys also had games on this Tuesday and Thursday against Westerville North and Delaware Hayes.
This is looking to be a great season for Darby soccer. The team is hoping to start where they left off from last season when they made it all the way districts, and it looks like they could continue that legacy. The team has an upcoming game Tuesday against Worthington Kilbourne.
