THORNDIKE – Mount View High School boys soccer’s eight-game undefeated streak has been temporarily put on hold after their contest against MCI was rained out on Tuesday.
The cancellation comes on the precipice of a four game stretch over the span of seven days.
“We’re a pretty experienced, pretty adaptable squad..I think it isn’t a huge problem for us..the only problem is rescheduling because we have a packed schedule..,” said senior forward Cassidy Pound.
Fitting that MCI game around those four games already scheduled does not scare Mustangs head coach Dale Hustus either, “we are a very physically fit team..right from day one of preseason we’ve worked on being super physically fit.. I’ve got eight or nine guys that I know can go the full eighty minutes without breaking down.”
Despite having not lost a game this season and previously being ranked higher, the Mustangs are third in the Class B North standings due to Heal Points.
“We just play hard, keep winning..we’ll get back up there,” said senior midfielder Darrett Fowler.
The team is unique in having nine seniors that have played together since middle school, a group that knows how to play with each other.
“Our team chemistry..we’ve built it up since seventh grade..there’s like nine seniors..eight of them are starters so its huge for us,” said senior midfielder Andrew Savoy.
Mount View picks their season back up on Thursday at Belfast.
