Boys' soccer: Richmond Hill win scrimmage against Brunswick

The Richmond Hill Wildcats boys’ soccer team hosted a scrimmage game against the Brunswick Pirates on Tuesday, before the official start of the season. The Wildcats won the game in an impressive 5-0 fashion. 

“I am pleased with how the game went overall,” third year boys’ soccer head coach Stephen Peterson said. “I liked the things that we were able to do on the field tonight. We showed a lot of creativity down the stretch with our passes and shots.”

While the game may have only been a scrimmage, the Wildcats proved that they were ready for the season, and they were able to play an opponent other than themselves in practice. 

“We did many things tonight that I wanted to be able to see us do,” Peterson said. “One of our goals was to win the ball, and not only to win the ball, but to also keep it, and I think we did a great job with that.

“We also wanted to have possession and work 6-pass sequences. Tonight was for us to focus on the basics and fundamentals of the game. I feel like we executed those things. We wanted to speed up on defense and get possession fast and we did that as well. Our back four were incredible from east to west. They played back there with ease and all of those factors helped to lead us to the win tonight.”

On February 2, the Richmond Hill soccer program is hosting a ‘Black and Gold’ scrimmage in which the JV boys will compete against the JV girls at 5 p.m. The varsity girls will compete against the varsity boys at 7pm. The price of admission is a family-sized snack or drink to “Fill the Pantry” for game days for the athletes.
