Boys Varsity West Soccer vs. Wyoming HS School

Game Date
Aug 29, 2023
Score
: 2.00
WYOMING HIGH SCHOOL: 1.00

Tuesday night the Dux varsity boys took on Wyoming High school, a team they have not beat in several years.  The contests always seemed close but we were not able to come out on top until tonight.  The boys clawed their way to a 2-1 victory over a very technically skilled Wolves team.  The pace through out the game was very high energy and counter attacks seemed to be the theme.  Wyoming controlled possession through most of the 1st half but the Dux defense stood strong led by Junior goal keeper Lucas Smith.  The Dux got on the board 1st just 8 minutes into the game as Pace Bittrick placed a well time ball from Micah Henry to put the Dux up 1-0.  Wyoming countered quickly and just a few minutes later equalized on a low shot that squirted under a diving Smith to tie the game at 1.  With just over 6 minutes to go Ivan Michmerhuizen headed a ball off of a free kick and it bounced around only to find it's way into the net to put the Dux up 2-1.  The half would end up with the Dux on top.  The 2nd half saw more chances by both teams with both keepers making some excellent saves to keep the score 2-1.  The Wolves pushed the attack as time wound down but the defense held and the Dux walked away a 2-1 winner to stay undefeated on the young season.  I thought our team showed some real grit in a game that was very physical.  We got knocked down but we kept fighting and really showed some toughness.  I was very proud of how the boys handle their emotions and kept them in check.  They continue to learn and find ways to win.
