The Carroll boys soccer team has looked pretty solid through the first eight district matches, and coach Greg Oglesby said that he is pleased with where his team is positioned in the district standings.
The Dragons played Trinity on Tuesday night after the press deadline and will take on Colleyville Heritage at 7:15 p.m. on Friday at CHHS.
“It should be a very physical game,” Oglesby said. “It was the last time. They are very aggressive and is should be a very close game with them.”
Carroll defeated Richland by a score of 8-2 on Friday night, and Oglesby said that he has been very pleased with how his team played so aggressively.
“It was really exciting coming out with such a fast start,” Oglesby said. “We put a goal in within the first minute of the game and scored seven goals in one half, so that was very exciting. I was very pleased to see the boys respond that well.”
Oglesby said that he had six different players score in the game against Richland.
The Carroll coach said that he is feeling very good about where his team is situated in the district standings and how Carroll is playing at the moment.
“We’re very pleased to be where we are,” Oglesby said. “Coppell is one of the top teams in the state and we lost to them 3-2. We’re played well so far.”
Oglesby said that in order to have continued success for the remainder of the season and make a good postseason run, it will take one thing in particular.
“We are just going to have consistency,” Oglesby said on Sunday. “We have four games left – two this week and two next week, so we just have to stay consistent and keep doing what we’re doing. The boys have gotten better as the year’s progressed, so we want to continue to continue to improve.”
