Woodland was in full control of the field during their game on Friday, October 7, against Wilby. Zach Powanda, a junior on the team, held sway over the pace of the game while playing his position of center-middle. Once the defense retrieved the ball from the opposing team, their eyes scanned the field for Powanda, who would redirect the ball to offense.
Other athletes that strongly contributed the team’s win included John Frasco, a sophomore, constantly battling for the ball, and Christian Poirier, also a sophomore, who scored three points in four minutes.
“Three points in under four minutes is unheard of in soccer,” shared Xavier Gibson, a junior on the team. “The team played really well today.”
The boys worked incredibly together, communicating throughout the field.
“We passed really well, our defense was great towards the second half, and we finished the majority of the shots we took,” explains Powanda. “It was an overall great game.”
The boys’ next game will be this Friday, October 11, against St. Paul.
