On the offensive end, the Redmen are in a loss with the graduation of midfielders Justin Jones and Lance Brown. The defensive end isn’t much better, with the loss of Trevin Hansen, who has held the Cedar High defense for the past two seasons.
The good news for the Redmen starts with the return of five juniors to the team and a sturdy underclass to help them off the bench. Last year’s six sophomores, that are juniors this season, are more than capable of helping out the Redmen team.
Senior Adrian Briano and junior Brenden Angus will look to cover up the holes left by last year’s seniors, as both have a lot of experience playing on the varsity team.
Matt Wilde and Ryan Kern are the two senior defenders this season and the team will look to them to keep balls out of the Redmen half and set up plays on counter attacks. The graduation of goal keeper Alan Payne is also a major factor in where the Redmen will go this season. With all the youth returning for the Redmen, the team is sure to be able to rebound from the loss of older players.
The Redmen lost 4-0 to Park City Thursday, and play again Friday at Hillcrest with a chance to get a first win on the season.
