Pirate soccer builds bruises, confidence
POLSON – With a fairly young roster and being plagued with injury and illness, the Pirate boys’ soccer team is taking each game as a learning experience.
Polson’s first three games have ended with a loss but they are coming together and improving with each game.
Head coach Jess Kittle is confident his boys will “break into the win column soon.”
“I really like how Jaben Wenzel, Dylan Moll, and Sutton Kanta played on defense this game,” Kittle said about their last outing against Livingston’s Park High School Rangers.
Junior Jonah Kasnitz leads the team in goals, scoring both of the Pirates points.
Goalkeeper sophomore Trevor Basler has a combined 15 saves over three games.
Though taking their bumps, the Pirates will continue to fight.
“We have improved each time we set foot on the field,” Kittle said.
Polson will play their last non-conference game in Hamilton Sept. 14 and then face teams within their conference until the playoffs. Playoffs will be held Oct 19 and 26 with state right around the corner, Nov 2.
