Coach: John Kovacs (26th year)
Last year: 6-8-4
Key returnees: Pat Jamross, Sr., F; Ryan Parker, Sr., D; Curran Doyle, Sr., M; Sean Peters, Jr., D.
Coach Kovacs is pleased with the improvements made by his team during the offseason.
Kovacs said practices this offseason have been spirited, as the play from his returning seniors is setting the tone for the team, which returns six starters. Senior captain Jamross has shown improved ability to score goals and has stepped up as a leader and a passer, Kovacs said.
Kovacs said he's made some minor tweaks to his defensive alignment and will look to junior Peters and senior Parker, returning starters who should anchor the back end.
In the middle, junior midfielder Jeff Pullano returns along with senior Doyle, who has so far shown the ability to set up his Warrior teammates with well-timed crosses.
On the receiving end of those crosses will be junior forward Kevin Boino. Boino is the leading scorer from last season, returning 10 goals to the team and looking to add to that total.
Kovacs said his team is looking forward to battling with the rest of the teams in the North Division.
Heading into the season, the Warriors will look to get off to a fast start, with a return trip to the Western Massachusetts Division II tournament the goal.
