The Franklin County varsity boys soccer team dropped its opener 3-1 at John Paul II Nov. 8, but new coach Luis Ramon Valenzuela is confident boys will rebound from this.

“We have talent and we  are  going to pursue the best this season,” he said.

With an injury to starting goalie Dan Carrino, the team relied on senior Casey Sapp, who had 19 saves.

The team’s lone score came from the leg of Graham Kirvin, who was closest fighting to score near the goal after several rebounds by the Seahawks.

Zach Howze has two shots on goal, with James Newell have four, and one each for Kirvin and Josh Reeder.

“We played the entire time very hard, until the last minutes when they scored  two goals against us,” said Valenzuela, who is assisted by Stacy Kirvin. “Defensively we were strong, the entire  time. I told the boys to take this as a positive experience and let’s learn from our mistakes.
