North Kitsap Boys Soccer | Spring Sports Preview

Boys Soccer

Head coach: Greg St. Peter

2018 record: 14-5 (9-3)

Key players: Jack Thompson, sr., defender; Joey Gore, sr., midfielder; Ondrean Sluys, sr., midfielder; Samma Baca-De Luna, sr., midfielder; Wyatt Murphy, jr., midfielder; Marcos Larios, jr., midfielder; Ryan Anderson, so, midfielder.

Outlook: There are plenty of new faces in the program this year after graduating 14 players in 2018. But as usual, the program continues to produce good young talent that steps in to fill the roles of the departed players and this year should be no different. Watch to see how the new team comes together. Goal scoring has been a bit of an issue in recent years, so the coaching staff should be moving players around early on and tinkering with different formations to find a way to produce goals consistently.
