North Star boys soccer team busy with two games over the past week

The North Star Wolves boys soccer team wrapped up the regular season with a pair of games last week as they tried to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Wolves entered the week with a 0-2-2 regular season record in WECSSAA City Group play. They added a tie to that mark thanks to a 0-0 deadlock with the visiting Catholic Central Comets last Wednesday afternoon at the Libro Centre in Amherstburg.

“It was definitely a stalemate,” said North Star coach Gavin Blunt.

Blunt believes the Wolves are starting to come together as a team as the playoff season approaches. He noted Monday night’s regular season finale against Lajeunesse was key in terms of getting into the post-season.

“This team is young this year,” said Blunt. “We’ve had one or two lapses in a couple of games this season.”

The Wolves have only a handful of Grade 12 players with most being in Grade 10 or Grade 11, he added.

“The boys are trying hard,” said Blunt. “They’ve got to keep working and then the goals will come.”

Blunt added North Star is having “a better than anticipated season” and said after the Catholic Central game that the upcoming Lajeunesse game that was played Monday night was going to be extremely important. North Star boys soccer team busy with two games over the past week By Ron Giofu
