Falcons kick off 2014 soccer season with game against Chatham.

After months of practice and conditioning, the Galileo Falcons started off their season by playing against the Chatham Cavaliers on April 23 at Dan Daniel Park.

“Naturally I thought the we had a shot to win, but we didn’t execute things that well and we had moments that we will have to continue to work and improve,” stated Head Coach Jared Smith

The game wrapped up as a loss for Galileo with a score of 1 to Chatham’s score of 9. Even though they did not win, the team has high hopes that this loss will set an example and have a positive effect on games in the future.

“Practice on Thursday (24) was a really good practice and it was a solid effort. We have been improving on the problems from the game offensively and defensively,” stated Smith

The Falcons were preparing to face off against the Dan River Wildcats on April 25, but the game was unfortunately was rained out and rescheduled for May 12.

“I hope that the Dan River game will be a chance for us to rebound from our loss and step up as a team,” stated Smith

The Falcons are now preparing themselves for future games with constant practices. The practices involve both offensive and defensive drills along with the occasional scrimmage.

“The practices have definitely become harder since our loss, but we have become a better team because of these practices. I believe it will affect our future games for the better overall,” stated team member and sophomore Corey Watkins.
