With a 3-2 win over visiting Berkshire on Tuesday, Wickliffe’s boys’ soccer team matched its school record for wins in a single regular season.
The Blue Devils improved to 13-3 on the year matching the 13 wins the 2017 squad earned before finishing the year 15-3-1 with a pair of postseason victories.
“This game tied our school record for most wins in the regular season so it was a fun night for us, especially to get it against a strong opponent who is having a great year themselves,” said Wickliffe coach Dominik Severino. “With playoffs right around the corner, it is always nice to get a couple wins going into the week.”
Colin Casey scored a pair of goals and A.J. Levon added one for the Blue Devils, who also saw assists from Noah Telisman and Kurt Borgert.
“This was the epitome of a team performance tonight,” Severino said. “Our seniors stepped up and took control of a super-fast-paced physical match and I couldn’t be happier. Once we moved Colin up top, his creativity gave us a bit of a spark. I thought Colby Humbert and Noah Telisman played big roles offensively for us as well. Colin’s first goal settled us down a bit and allowed us to start to play our game.”
Anthony Shaw recorded six saves in goal.
“Our back line looked really good tonight,” Severino said. “Berkshire is a strong team this year with a lot of talent and physicality all over the field. I thought our defense did a great job containing possession and building forward for us. We had six different players rotate back there tonight and all did their job.”
Wickliffe can add to its regular-season win total on Thursday when the Blue Devils visit Andrews-Osborne Academy.
