Score Early, Score Often

Alex Syfris and Jay Klein get us to date with the Boys Varsity Soccer team.

We’re coming to you with plenty of news from the Wyoming Cowboys. The Cowboys came up with a huge victory against a top 5 D1 Lebanon team (Thursday, September 24th). Wyoming was a definite underdog going in, but this could not be seen in the Cowboy’s play and mentality as they dominated the Lebanon side. In the opening minutes of the game, play opened up with a nice through ball by Christopher Rutter creating a 1 on 1 situation with Jay Klein and the Lebanon goalkeeper who stood no chance.  Jay Klein followed up the first goal minutes later with a nice shot slotted right by the keeper. Lebanon put Wyoming goalie Ethan Wayman under constant pressure in the first half but could not find the back of the net. The high pressure defense coupled with quality saves by Ethan Wayman held off the Lebanon attackers. The Cowboys entered the second half with high spirits and continued to control play, putting away Lebanon with a third and final goal by Tristan Kovach.

The next week had coach Steve Thomas in violent mood swings as the Cowboys took on Finneytown (Tuesday, September 29th) and then Seven Hills (Wednesday, September 30th). The Cowboys put away Finneytown with relative ease with goals from Jay Klein (2), Tristan Kovach (1), and a hat trick by Andrew Derge (3). Finneytown roasted Wyoming’s goalkeeper with a dirty chip from around 40 yards out, taking advantage of the goalkeepers inability to jump due to an injured back. The game ended 6-1 Cowboys. Seven Hills proved a much more trying game for our boys. The Cowboys left the game defeated 2-0 after playing a tough game against a well-coached squad.

Senior Night! The 11 seniors on the Wyoming team all started against Reading in the CHL match (Tuesday, October 6th). Emotions ran high as this was likely the last time the Wyoming seniors would play on their home field with many of the same people who had been together since peewee soccer. The goals started pouring in from the seniors with a goal each from Jay Klein, Nicholas Robles, Tristan Kovach, Nathan Gressel, and Charlie Oliver. A nice, long halftime ceremony honored the seniors and their parents adding to the night’s sentiment. A goal was also scored by junior Andrew Derge off a beautiful assist from fair haired senior Marshall Hayes concluding the match 6-0.
