The boys’ soccer team picked up their first win of the season, beating Wichita Classical 5-0.

Senior Zachary Wagner had a monster first half finding the back of the net three times. Scoring the first goal of the game in the 8th minute while being unassisted. Wagner went to net a goal in the 35th minute with an assist from junior Tradgon McCrae. Senior Ethan Nunnery assisted Wagner for the final goal of the half in the 38th minute.

“My teammates helped me tremendously finding my feet in the middle. I have a pass first mentality before a shooting mentality.” Wagner said, “Goals come naturally, assists come with patience. I just played my game and I saw some runs and passes that I could make to help the team.”

Nunnery found his shots in the second half, scoring the last two goals of the game. The Nunnery, Wagner duo were running on all cylinders with both of Nunnery’s goal one in the 60th minute and the other in the 90th minute and both assists came from Wagner.

Nunnery tied the current record for most goals in a career, with his two goals against Wichita Classical. Nunnery is now tied with the current Head Coach of the Indians, Silas Hibbs.

The Indians record moves to 1-1 on the season and will continue their six away game stretch in the Wichita South Invitational on Sept. 4.

“The team played well as a whole, we had some great possession and ball movement. The team had great chemistry,” Wagner said.
