The Solon Comets boys soccer team is set to face the Brunswick Bruins Tuesday, Oct. 6, at Stewart Field. The two teams compete in a Greater Cleveland Conference match that will be broadcasted on youtube.

SETV will be live streaming the game starting at 7 p.m. and will have Jeff Sabo adding commentary.

Senior outside midfielder, Jake Moss is confident in the team’s ability to give the Bruins a great competition compared to their game last year. Brunswick beat Solon 6-0 this past season, but both teams have adjusted their rosters due to the new school year.

 “The Solon Comets record stands at 4-2-1, and we are eager to improve it even more,” Jake Moss said. “We are ready to give the best competition possible and won’t’ stop until we get the victory.”

The Bruins are currently 5-1-2, and have a similar roster and record as the Comets. 

Ben Moss, a defensive player for the Comets talks about the game plan, and the way the team is going to execute.

“My job is to organize the back line,” Moss said. “I have to keep the ball moving from side to side and need to play a clean game with no dirty fouls. This year I am more focused on playing the game itself and not overthinking anything.”

The captains have a major role in conveying the coach’s overall message.

“Both Andrew [Messmer] and Zach [Baldwin] are veterans on the field,” Moss said. “Both playing varsity their entire high school careers, they are confident in us and we trust them to lead us to a win.”

Team captain, Andrew Messmer thinks the team is mentally and physically ready for the match.

“We have had some extremely tough training sessions,” Messmer said. “This past week we have looked at Brunswick’s film from the past few games, and have analyzed their weak points and players.”

Center mid, Noah Janke says the team is ready to prove themselves and are ready to compete like never before.

“It will be a tough game to say the least,” Janke said. We’re coming into the big GCC matchup starting behind everyone else because we didn’t start playing until a little more than two weeks ago. Brunswick came out last year and dominated, but this year we have a chip on our shoulder and can’t wait for the match.”
