Boys varsity soccer ended their season with an 11-7 record, bowing out to Waconia 4-1 in the Section quarterfinal game. In a game that was 2-1 for much of the second half, the Stars pressed the attack in attempt to get the equalizer goal. However, Waconia’s counter attack caught the boys twice for two late goals.
The Stars were led by their captains Josiah Colman, Keegan Mellema, and David Brain. Colman set a new school record for most goals scored in a single season with 28. He was top 5 in the State in scoring throughout the year. As a four-year letter winner, Colman scored 60 career goals and had 22 career assists. He was selected to receive All-State honors. Mellema and Brain were also recognized as state leaders in soccer. They both were in the Top 10 in assists in the state.
The Stars will return 11 letter winners for the 2019 campaign. The look might be different, but the desire and intensity will always be there. It’s the Stars way.
Girls Varsity Soccer
Girls varsity soccer played Waseca in the third round of section playoffs this past Thursday. On a windy, 35-degree evening, the two squads battled both the elements as well as each other for eighty minutes before Waseca eventually won the match. The SWC squad showed significant improvement throughout the season and played hard in every game. The young Stars team finished with a record of 6-9-2.
We look forward to a terrific Soccer Banquet on November 5 as we reflect on the year, and then we will soon start preparations for the 2019 season.
