The JV boys soccer season has ended, but the memories will live on


It is a sad time of year as the JV boys soccer season has come to a close after a long season full of ups and downs. The boys fought through many hard wins and losses but overall the season is one to look back on.

With their final record being 8-8-2, the team can be proud and satisfied with how the season went. Games such as the win against FHN and moments like the last-minute winner from sophomore Cole Decker made the season memorable.

“I really enjoyed the season because of all the great memories we had together and the many wins we had,” said freshman Grant McLean.

Some of these wins include the 1-0 win at EGR, the 4-3 thriller against Coopersville, and the 4-0 win against Cedar Springs at the beginning of the season

The boys are thrilled with how the season went because they were able to meet some of the goals. For example, they were able to win games in the conference tournament and their record was solid which were both things that many of the boys wanted to accomplish as the season progressed.

Not only have the players looked back on the season, but the coaches have also. Head coach Rob Otterbein led the boys through the thick and thin of the season and views it as a win.

“I think the season overall was a success. This group of boys was probably the most technical of all the years that I have been coaching at FHC. We were able to get our first mercy against FHE. We definitely had our struggles as well. There were a few games where we were unable to score and play a complete game. I would argue that we held the majority of possession against the majority of our opponents which was a goal of mine for the boys.” said coach Otterbein.

There are many things to improve on going into next year but that will not overshadow the accomplishments this team achieved over the season. The team should be proud of the season and will look forward to whatever next season brings.
