The Flying Fluco boys’ soccer coach Earl Gibson had a senior-laden team in 2016. A number of talented starters have moved on, so Gibson is fielding a young and somewhat inexperienced team this season. Unfortunately, the Flucos’ first game was against a Spotsylvania High Knights team that Gibson described as “strong and experienced.” The Flucos were shut out, losing 0-5.
In the opening game of the season, on March 17, the Flucos played competitively in the first half. Spotsylvania went up 1-0 after nine minutes of play as a rebound was fired into an empty net after Fluco freshman goalie Bryce Cognetti deflected a hard shot. The play for the rest of the half was mostly even. The play moved up and down the field, as both teams had some offensive chances but were unable to score.Add a comment
