A tough loss for the boys varsity soccer team ends their season with a 13-5-2 record


Hard work, grit, brotherhood and a long uphill battle are perfect words to describe the boys varsity soccer team. Day after day the boys put in the work by showing up for practice and battling it out each game but a tough loss against East Grand Rapids was quite a disappointment for the whole team but impartiality the group of seven seniors that are done with Ranger soccer.

Though the game was a disappointing loss, senior Noah Burr is still proud of his team and their past games even though this one did not go as planned.

“The hardest part was probably that it was the end of the seniors’ careers and EGR is a rivalry and it was a bummer to lose to them,” Noah said. “The highlight of the season was probably beating GRC in the first round with 38 seconds to go in the game”.

The hardest part about coaching is the end of each season, the hardship of leaving a team with great chemistry that was created and letting them move on to the next big thing in their life. Coach Paul Kramer recognizes the dedication of every team member to be the best they can be, even if it is not the way it was originally envisioned.

“I felt like I was in shock after last night’s game like it didn’t happen. Our expectations and goals were to go further, but it just didn’t happen. I’m gutted for our seniors. We have some great ones that will do great things after high school. I’m going to miss them”.

That concludes the boys varsity soccer season of 2022. The strong effort brought the boys to a final record of 13-5-2 It was a good season with an unfortunate end, good luck next season boys.
