Mustangs Eager to begin the Season
July 23, 2014Bishop Brossart High School
The 2014 Mustangs will start the preseason this weekend in the High School version of the Bluegrass State Games in Lexington. The Mustangs are sending three teams down to Lexington to get everyone some touches. The Mustangs are looking to top last year’s season. The Mustangs have dominated Northern Kentucky Soccer over the last two seasons. The Mustangs compiled a 41-7-1 record. They are the defending All A State Champions, The 10th Region defending champions, and the 2 time 37th District Champions and 2 time winner of the Cardinal Cup.
The Mustangs are again loaded this season. As freshman these Mustangs won the Northern Kentucky Regional Title and then as sophomores won the Northern Kentucky JV Regional title. They look to score a lot of goals as last years team did as well and shut down offensive teams with another fantastic defense.
The Mustangs lost their top three goal scorers to graduation in Jake Jennings, Drew Berkemeyer, and Eli Neinaber, but will have many Mustangs willing to step up to take their place.
To fill the cleats of last year’s top three will be Senior, Nick Dierig, who had 9 goals and 4 assists last season, Senior, Jon Henn had 7 goals and 6 assists, Senior, Mark Goller had 4 goals and 4 assists, and Junior, Joey Hickman had 3 goals and 2 assists. The Mustangs will also have Seniors Matt Smith, Jacob Frommeyer, Evan Berkemeyer, Gabe Roberts, Dalton Linebach, and Chase Hauke who all provided valuable minutes on last year’s championship team.
On defense the Mustangs are again solid. They did lose All Regional player, Josh Kueper and a few others to graduation, but back in goal will be Jeff Paulin. Jeff allowed only 9 goals last season splitting time with Andrew Erickson. Jeff will have 2nd year starter and solid defender, Mark Goller and the other Jacob Frommeyer (the junior) who provided many valuable minutes last season in back to shut down the scoring threats.
There are many more Mustangs that are moving up the ranks and the Bluegrass games is always a place for them to shine and make their case known for the upcoming season.
We hope to see many fans make the drive to Lexington this weekend.
