From Coach Chenoweth:

The Whitewater Boys Soccer team played two games to a draw this week.  First up was Evansville, a team that we knew would be tough based on the past few years.  Each team kept pace with one another as Whitewater went up first, but for each goal the Whippets scored, Evansville was able to answer.  We managed goals from Manny Cortez, Christian Reyes, and David Kromholz.  Our center defensive mids of Danny Soto, Morgan Janovec and Ignacio Cuevas did a good job of being aware of their dangerous players while our outside mids Colin Chenoweth, Cody Rupke, and Manny Cortez worked well to help move the ball up the field while also tracking back defensively.

On Thursday, the Whippets traveled to Edgerton.  Edgerton had a game plan to get the ball into our half as quickly as possible on each possession.  They had a strong keeper who did not shy away from coming out of his goal box and was a really strong punter.  The Whippets started the game slower and more tentative than we would have liked.  While we didn’t score in either half, the second half was much more recognizable as the type of soccer we’d like to be playing the rest of the season.

The Whippets are now 4-4-3 overall and have one loss and two ties in conference play.  Up next for us is McFarland at home on Monday and Big Foot away on Thursday.
