“We just need to clear the ball there. We let them keep hammering in the 6. We should have just cleared the ball on that one instead of just playing it.”
Logan junior Roberto Coronado got his first start at center back after starter Cooper Kinnaman was lost for the season to a broken collarbone in the Muncie Central game.
LHS coach Mike Turner said Coronado played well for the most part after being called up from the JV team.
“We can create opportunities and score goals, we’ve shown that. That’s really the key thing that we’ve lost is that center defender. That’s a tough one to fill,” he said.
Turner thought his team played well on senior night. The Berries have 12 seniors on the roster this year.
“I thought we had really good team focus to open the match. We made it a point on senior night to forget all the other distractions and make it special for them,” Turner said. “We have a big senior class. They represented themselves well and did a good job. We pressured them well. I was really pleased with the way the boys played. I think they represented themselves well with all of the distractions.”
The Logan coach added a win helps his team move on from the forfeits.
“A win is going to pick everybody up. It happened. There is nothing we can do about it but move on. They’re showing good resilience. I’m really proud of them for their resilience,” he said.
The Berries added a game to their schedule at Fort Wayne Wayne at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.
