As his team begins the second half of its schedule, Polk County Middle School head soccer coach Travis Aldred is pleased with his team’s 4-2 record.
And not surprised by it, either.
“Nothing has really surprised me so far” Aldred said. “We just have to keep playing our game and we will keep winning.”
The Wolverines begin the final six games of the regular season on Monday with a trip to Waynesville to face the Mountaineers in a 4:30 p.m. match. The trip is the first of three straight road games for Polk Middle.
After outscoring opponents 15-1 to win their first four matches, he Wolverines dropped games last week to Hendersonville Middle and Flat Rock Middle. Polk Middle is still firmly in contention for the Blue Ridge Middle School Conference East Division title, though, and will face both Hendersonville and Flat Rock again. Flat Rock appears to be the top team in the division at this point, its lone loss to Rugby.
“The season has gone good so far,” Aldred said. “As a team we have strengths everywhere, and we should be just fine as the season goes on.”
