The Harrisburg boys soccer team has a record of eight wins, three losses, and three ties. The boys won their game against Anna with a score of 5-1. Seniors Grant Wilson, Kelsyn Fricker, and Jack Winters scored the goals of the game.
The boys also won their last game in the Graves County Tournament Sept. 17 against Trigg County, 3-2. Winning that game gave them second place in the tournament.
According to Maxpreps, the team has seven wins, four ties, and four losses. However, multiple soccer players have said that the information is incorrect. At the game Sep. 13, at Murphysboro, Harrisburg lost 6-2, however, the opposing team had ineligible players playing that night.
“Their coach allowing the ineligible player to play in the game forced them to forfeit, making us win,” said senior Kelsyn Fricker, who plays the positions forward or goalkeeper.
Senior Grant Wilson was selected as player of the game for that game. Other players that have been selected for player of the game recently are seniors Sebastion Brown, Kelsyn Fricker, and Jack Winters, and sophomore Tyler Barger.
According to the senior soccer players, post-season play will start Oct. 18. Some players have expressed how their team needs to work better together for regionals.
“We need to pass the ball around more,” senior Kelsyn Fricker said.
