2019 Neshaminy Boys' Soccer Preview


Coach: Tom Foley

Assistant coaches:  Jim McCourt, Mike Cochran, and Zack Albarran

Last year’s record:  10-8-1 Overall, 8-4 in the SOL

Notable losses:
Kais Jawawdeh-Temple Playing (Med. Red Shirt), Vincent McGlynn Virginia Tech

Key returners:  Alex Daeche 12th/ Def, Gavin Rowan 11th/ F-MF, Mike Albarran 11th/MF-D, Lou Salmi 11th/D, Ian Siwinski 11th/D, Trevor Rush 11th/GK, Cole Jackson 11th/F

Others to watch:  Connor Steele 10th/MF, Justin Lykonov 11th/F

Strengths:  “We have a solid defensive team back from last year, if we can defend set pieces better this year, I don’t expect us to give up many goals.”

Question mark:  “Can we score goals consistently enough to be competitive?”

Outlook:  “We did not lose too much to graduation and a lot of our current juniors saw a lot of action last year and we work hard. Hopefully, that experience will give us the confidence we need to compete for a league title and make the playoffs. We believe we have a couple of guys who can score goals and will be able to defend well; if that happens I think we can put together a real solid season.”
