Dear Methacton Families and Community,

We'd like to highlight the achievements of the 2022-2023 girls soccer program. The 22-23 squad received national recognition this past week by the United Soccer Coaches Association by being awarded the High School Team Academic Award for the 2022-23 school year with a Team GPA of 3.96! This was the highest Team GPA in the Pioneer Athletic Conference, and one of the highest in the state last season. This is also the 4th time the team has received this award.

This week, we switched to Thursday Night Lights with a great crowd and perfect weather. While the game didn't go quite the way we hoped it would, the cheer team never gave up on the Warriors, who fought until the end.

After a fast-paced and competitive game, varsity took a victory winning 5-1. JV ended with a 0-0 draw. Thursday the team continued with non-league play and traveled to Souderton Area High school. JV played a hard fought game on the grass, but the contest ended with a 2-0 loss. After making some adjustments from Monday's game, varsity finished the week 2-0.

This week the team looks forward to starting league play. They will face the Perkiomen Valley Vikings on Wednesday. Then on Friday, the team takes on Norristown at home at 4:00 pm. Come on out to Warrior Stadium to support the team!

Players of the Practice this week:

Olivia Feliciani (sophomore) - Olivia really took the feedback she was given and tried to implement it immediately. The coaches have seen a lot of improvements in Olivia's effort and skill level so far this season, and she has even started to step up as a leader on the team.

Lily DeWan (senior) - Not only did Lily keep the tempo and intensity up throughout our early morning practice, but she consistently communicated with her teammates and provided feedback to the entire team to help boost each drill.

Please help support our team and their Play4theCure game to support the National Foundation for Cancer Research.

Boys Soccer

The Boys soccer team has gotten off to a slow start this year, losing all three home night games last week and dragging their record to 0-4 overall.

Each game had bright spots but right now they just can't seem to put a full game together.

The week started with an 0-3 loss Monday night to Lansdale Catholic. There were strong contributions from players coming off the bench and after surviving the early flurry the boys played the second half even. Man of the Match for this game was Kristian Bauer for his strong stabilizing effort off the bench.

Wednesday night was a 1-3 loss to a solid Exeter team. The game was much closer than the final score suggests but some difficulties in front of the net led to the larger than should have been deficit. Man of the Match honors go to Cole Kleger for scoring the team's first goal of the season on a PK that he worked hard for.

Friday brought the end of the week and hopefully the end of the losing skid with the 1-2 loss to PV in the team's first league match. This game was a battle back and forth with the play of our Warriors being much improved. After allowing an early PK goal, the squad knotted the match on a goal from Dishawn Shakes from a cross into the box from Cole Larcinese. One critical mistake late however allowed PV to tally the winning goal and dropping the match for the Warriors. Man of the Match honors go to Owen Rovinsky for shutting down PV's vaunted striker for the bulk of the game.

The boys worked hard over the holiday weekend and are hoping to bring home their first win of the season with two games this week.

The JV boys went 2-1-0 on the week and raised their overall record to 2-1-1 and continue to improve up and down the roster. There is starting to be some real strength there.

Go Warriors!

Upcoming Events:

-Wednesday 9/6 - Norristown (HOME)

-Friday 9/8 - Pope John Paul (AWAY)

Girls Soccer

The girls soccer team had a tough week with a difficult early season schedule, losing to top ranked Garnet Valley, and a close 2-1 loss to rival Perkiomen Valley. The Warriors were down 2-0 but got a goal from senior Aubrey Beaugard to cut the deficit to 1, but ran out of time to find the equalizer.

The girls will look to get back on track with games this week against Norristown on Wednesday, and a home “Friday Night Lights” game against PJP, with the JV game starting at 5 and Varsity at 7. This is also “FC Montco” night, with youth players from the local soccer club being encouraged to show up and support.

Upcoming Events:

-Wednesday 9/6 - Game vs. Norristown (AWAY)

-Friday 9/8 - Game vs. Pope John Paul HS (HOME)

Girls Tennis

This past week the girls got both a non league and league match in. Our second non league match of the season was at Wissahickon where we had quite a few competitive matches but 5 of them didn’t go in the Warriors favor with a 2-5 final result loss. The team turned it around on Thursday and won 5–2 in their second league match of the season against Phoenixville making them 2-0 so far this season in the PAC.

This upcoming week we are hoping to keep the PAC winning streak going as the girls will compete against Perk Valley and Owen J Roberts both at home.

Upcoming Events:

-Wednesday 9/6 - Match vs. Perkiomen Valley (HOME)

-Friday 9/8 - Match vs. OJR (HOME)
