Soccer season kicks off

The Thomson High School soccer teams have started their seasons off on the right foot.

The boys' team has already gained a victory over Butler with a 7- 2 win. The girls follow close behind with a victory over Lincoln County, 7- 0.

"We know how to kick the ball better this year," midfielder Hope Harrison said. "We all are showing a lot more hustling. We are proud of our 2-4 record, though we can do better."

Although the teams' past couple of games weren't so great, girls losing to Baldwin 5-0 and boys 5-2, players have kept their heads held high. In fact, team members are hoping to extend their season this year.

"We could actually go pretty far this year," midfielder Holly Coleman added.

No one had expected the boys' team to gain a victory this early in the season, but they pulled through and have a 3-2 record.

"Offensively, we pass better," Winger Steven Strouble said. "But we still need to hustle."

Other improvements goalie Ben Nay said the team needed to work on included its defense.

"Our defense is still inexperienced," Ben said.
