Soccer Team Full of Heart Ends Season

DSC_1308Norfolk Christian scored once in each half and the Oaks boys soccer team went down to defeat in the opener of the TCIS Tournament.

The game ended the team’s season with an 8-8 overall record, 4-4 in the TCIS.

“Commitment, effort and heart were the pillars for this year’s boys varsity soccer team at Norfolk Collegiate,” Coach Kai Evans said.
Twelve seniors graduated from last year’s squad so the team was a mix of young and old, experienced and newcomer.

“What this team lacked in soccer IQ and skill, they more than made up for in heart and hustle,” Evans added.

They won five straight, the longest streak of any boys team in the past three seasons.

“It was an honor working with and learning from such a wonderful group of young men,” Evans said. “The future remains bright for soccer at Norfolk Collegiate School with such exemplary leadership and effort lighting the way for future generations to come.”
