The Boys Soccer team had their first match against Emmaus team at the Eagle View Stadium’s Toyota Field and their second away at Hempfield. The CV boys captured their first win 3-1 and their second win 4-1. The wins mark the first of many as they hope to carry momentum from a productive offseason to the regular season and beyond.

“We did a lot of conditioning; we were out running every day. We had a two day where we were practicing four to five hours a day,” Senior Captain Jake Snyder said. Snyder is center back and is a huge role player for the team.

The boys had player-run practices throughout the month of June. Senior captain Michael Selon said, “In July we started running more. It sucked then, but it comes into play during the regular season.”

The team’s endurance was key to their first win over Emmaus and Hempfield.

Communication hasn't been a problem for cv boys soccer as Michael Selon. “We have been working really well with communicating both on the field and off the field. There is a strong bond that we created off the field that translated on the field.”

Although the team has had a lot of success there is still room for improvement. ”I feel as though we can work on everything,” Snyder said, but he feels like a specific part of the team's game that can be improved is finishing scoring opportunities.
