Ludington Boys Soccer Off to Strong Start
LUDINGTON – The Ludington Orioles have opened the year with four straight wins and have outscored their opponents 17-0.
Ludington made the jump from Division 3 to Division 2 last season, falling in the second round of districts to Spring Lake. The Orioles did finish the season as co-conference champions and have their sights set on an outright conference championship this season.
Following a 7-0 win over Cadillac, coach Kris Anderson said he loves the way the team has spread the ball around early on.
“The Cadillac game we really saw a lot of that unselfishness. I think the idea that it doesn’t matter who put the one on the board just that we get one on the board is what matters,” he said.
Senior Matthew Snyder said the team is using a different formation this season, allowing for more space to spread the ball around.
“I like our formation with the five in the back. It leaves space on the sides for our wide backs to run out and make runs,” Snyder said. “They’ve actually scored several of our goals so far so I think that’s a really cool thing.”
Ludington is in the middle of a stretch of six straight road games. Its next home game is September 11th against North Muskegon.
