Greenville – The Greenville boys soccer team dropped a 5-0 preseason scrimmage match to the Twin Valley South Panthers in preseason scrimmage play at Harmon Field.

“Overall I wish it was a different outcome in the score but we changed up a lot of positions tonight since it was a scrimmage,” Combs said. “We had zero substitutes tonight so they really had to get their conditioning right tonight and put in max effort from everybody.”

The young Green Wave team continues to show improvement under second year head coach, Marshal Combs as he continues to tweak the lineup.

“Our defense was changed up about halfway through the game,” noted Combs. “I was trying out some new guys in different positions tonight because of it being a scrimmage. There was a lot of good communication. We had a couple good shots on goal, we also tried out a new goal keeper tonight and he did pretty well for somebody in their first game as a goal keeper.”   

The team is where it is expected right now because of the team being so young. What we’re looking at is guys that would normally be on a junior varsity team, they are mostly freshmen and sophomores that make up our team.”

“We’re playing a varsity level so they are doing what I am expecting them to do as a team,” Coach Combs added. “There’s a few things we should be cleaning up but overall I would say they are doing exactly what they are expected to be doing.”
