The last time we saw the Skyline soccer team it was coming off the field following a tough 1-0 loss to Saline in a District final last season. It was a tough way to go out after the Eagles entered District play undefeated and with an SEC Red title to their name.
While 20-1 was an incredible run, the one still lingers and it’s time the Eagles do something about it. And they look ready to do exactly that.
Chris Morgan, one of the top coaches in the area, begins his ninth year as head coach and has plenty of talent to work with in 2017. The Eagles have 10 returning players, eight field players and two goalies back from last season.
“All equally important to our success this upcoming season,” says Morgan. “We also are very excited about our 10 new players to the team … all equally important to the season’s success.”
Right now the goal is to “get better and better with every game and practice.”
“We need to stay healthy, play as a team and find the back of the net,” Morgan said.
Skyline opened the season with a 4-0 win over Petoskey.
The Eagles host Canton on Tuesday and play at Northville on Thursday. Both games are at 7 p.m.
