The Banks County boys’ soccer team may be 1-3, but head coach Michael Boomer says his squad has certainly shown improvements from last season.
“We’ve been playing a lot better soccer this year as compared to last year – especially in terms of communicating on the field,” said Boomer.
Boomer noted that the Leopards have been making progress since the start of the season, but somewhat fell apart in last week’s away contest at Lakeview Academy. Banks County was blanked 3-0 by the Patriots.
“We’ve made strides,” said Boomer. “But we went into a defensive shell. That may have been the worst game we’ve played all season.”
The Leopards will need to refocus as they begin Region 7-AAA play on Friday in a home match against Buford.
UPDATE: Banks County tied Rabun County 1-1 on Tuesday.
The Lady Leopards dropped to 1-2-1 last week, after getting shut out by Lakeview Academy on the road.
Banks County has lost two straight; however, head coach Tammy Kennedy is confident that her squad will be ready for its first Region 7-AAA contest this week.
“We are stronger and faster this year,” said Kennedy. “I think we will fare better in our region than in previous seasons and we will continue to improve.”
The Lady Leopards open region play on Friday at 7 p.m. when they host the Buford Wolves.
