The seniors on the Buckeye boys soccer team played their last regular season home game last night against Brookside. They finished with the memory they all wanted beating Brookside 2-0. At the end of the first half the score was 1-0 Buckeye with a score by senior Ryan Grauel.
Coach Jeff Koeth said his guys were “playing a pretty good game.” He also believes that Brookside is a better team than Rocky River, who the boys played and tied last week 2-2.
At the end of the game Coach Joe Serio said, “We had an urgency that we had to win this game, and we came out and did what we had to do.” When asked what changes would need to be made to beat Cloverleaf, Serio said, “They just need stay aggressive.”
Senior Captain Mitchel Boehmke said they played a great game and they just need to improve on possession and passing. This was Boehmke’s last regular season home game, and he said that it makes him sad, but at the same time he’s happy that they got the win.
Senior Jacob Nigh said, “It’s a good memory, but kind of bittersweet.” Nigh believes, just like Serio and Boehmke, that they need to move the ball better and find the open guy more quickly.
Yesterday’s win is a fourpeat for Buckeye. This is the fourth year in a row that they have won the conference. Certainly these seniors have left their legacy at Buckeye, one that will never be forgotten.
