Experienced Petoskey Starts Boys Soccer Season Strong
PETOSKEY — The Petoskey boys soccer team has jumped out to a 6-1-1 record this season including five shutouts in their first eight games.
The Northmen are coming off a 2020 season where they won a district title, and this year’s team has its sights set on repeating and advancing to regionals.
“This group is extremely selfless. We’re all juniors and seniors. Those two groups get along really well,” Petoskey head coach Zach Jonker said. “Nobody cares who scores, nobody cares who gets the glory. It’s just about getting wins at the end of the day.”
They return eight seniors from that team, and with a deep and experienced roster, they believe they can go far.
“We’ve all played together like since we’ve been playing. So we’ve got the leadership, and we’ve got the connection and the chemistry, so I think we can build off of that,” Petoskey senior Marek Beckering said.
Petoskey has won four straight games since their first loss of the season against Elk Rapids, 2-1. They have allowed just four goals in eight games.
