JV boys wrap up
9-2 season

For Wood River High

It was a productive and fun season for the Wood River High School boys’ junior varsity soccer team coached for the second year by Farrell Swain.

"The whole team was a solid unit and they played together well," said Swain. "We did an awesome job of possessing the ball and our passing improved each game of the season."

Wood River finished 9-2, losing only to Capital of Boise 4-2 and Twin Falls 6-3. On offense, the team dominated with 54 goals scored (4.9 per game). On defense, the Wolverines yielded only 15 goals (1.4 per game).

The Wolverines beat Minico, Burley, Declo, Hillcrest of Idaho Falls, Twin Falls 3-0 and The Community School twice. A major victory was a 3-1 win over Century in Pocatello Oct. 2.

"We came into the season raring to go and won our first three games 3-0, 10-0 and 9-0. The kids thought they were rock stars. Then the loss to Capital brought us back to earth," Swain said about her 20-player squad.

Providing outstanding leadership was captain Spencer Cordovano, who did an awesome job at outside back, Swain said. Captain Bryce Newcomb was a threat at center midfielder before he was brought up to varsity.

The defense was such a strong group that Swain found it hard to substitute on the back line. They were sweeper Reid Pletcher, stopper Garrett Leo, Michael Dale and Cordovano.

Goalkeeper was Kenny Mauro.

Center midfielders were Spencer Flade and Dima Springs, while the outside midfielders were Cory Rutkowski and Chad Levitan.

The strikers were prolific led by top scorer Max Kwok (12 goals, 6 assists). Other forwards were Michael Kunz (8 goals, 1 assist), Carl Jablonski (7 goals, 1 assist) and Cooper McCroskey.

Swain said about her team of 10 sophomores and 10 freshmen, "The sophomores did an awesome job of showing the freshmen the ropes."
