Senior Braiden Meyers looks to turn up field in recent home match up against Wichita Classical.

The boys soccer team picked up their first win of the season in their second contention at home, topping Wichita Classical 4-2.

The Indians lead off with a goal from Senior Trey McCrae, assisted by Peyton Thorell, getting the scoring and giving the Indians the boost to continue scoring and get the win over Classical.

“I think it is very important to bounce back with a win after the loss you Garden City,” McCrae sad. “I think we had a great chance to prove ourselves against Wichita Classical with a win.”

Coach Silas Hibbs found this game an opportune moment to throw some knew faces in the starting lineup, such as senior Connor Olson and sophomore Brandon Musil.

“As a first-year senior playing soccer I’ve really enjoyed my time, Olson said. “Getting my first start was so awesome especially with it coming in front of the home fans and my family. I think I’ll help the team out decently this season because of my size and my adversity.”

Looking forward to the upcoming Titan Classic tournament McCrae looks forward to defending their title from last year.

“I mean we won it last year, so the target is on our back and we are the team to beat, but I feel like if we just play the game I know we can play and with the intensity and fire I think we will do fine in the tournament,” McCrae said.
