Boys' teams seek to net soccer titles

(Continued)

“We are a team that can grow and learn each game,” Denny said. “We have one outlook and it is one game at a time. Don’t look too far ahead or you will miss what’s right in front of you.”

Captaining the Bruins are seniors Logan Stroup and Aaron Sorgius along with juniors Trevor Waite and Don Hott. Waite has named to the first-team all-Sagamore Conference squad last season and Hott was on the all-conference second team.

“These four guys are great leaders both on and off the field,” Denny said.

Danville

The Warriors finished a very successful 2012 season with a winning record (11-6) and a second-place finish in the Sagamore Conference. For many teams that would be a triumphant season, but the success just left Danville wanting more.

With nine seniors returning, Danville coach Drew Brokamp believes the Warriors might be better this year.

In fact, he’s counting on it.

“We lost a number of starters and key players last year, all of whom will be missed, but we are working hard to build a team that can compete with and surpass last year’s successes,” Brokamp said.

Danville graduated its leading scorer in Dustin Rieser, and the Warriors hope to fill that void not with one person, but a group of players. Turner Perkins, Jake Verble, Nick Winberg, Cameron Amor, and Daniel Gerber all will push the ball to the net and act as scoring threats.

“We will miss Dustin, but I believe our attack will be more dynamic this year with plenty of players competing for the team’s leading goal scorer,” Brokamp said.

Defensively, the Warriors welcome a familiar face back to the goal. Zach Blankenship returns after an injury in his junior season sidelined him for most of the year.
