Preseason is over for Trevecca men’s soccer. The team has 12 new players and is in the beginnings of G-MAC conference play.
The team currently has a 1-2 record. They are preparing to play Cedarville at 4:30 p.m. Thursday Sept. 26 at home.
“We had a really good preseason,” said Danny Leavy, head men’s soccer coach, “From a team chemistry stand point, it was really productive because we brought in so many new players this year.”
Leavy said a highlight of preseason was seeing how the new team trains together.
“Last year’s group loved to play soccer with each other and this group really enjoys playing soccer for each other,” said Leavy.
Will Thompson, freshman goalkeeper, started in the first game of the season. Leavy said the coaching staff had originally expected Thompson to be on the reserve team this season. Tyler Delgato, senior goalkeeper was injured in preseason. Thompson continued to improve in training he was given the opportunity to play with the first team.
“He just kept improving and his confidence kept growing in preseason; he really came to the front as a result of preseason,” said Leavy.
Nicolas Reinhard assistant coach said there are currently five players recovering from injuries – two of which are redshirting this year.
The Trojans next two games will be at home against Cedarville at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday Sept. 26 and at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday Sept. 28.
