2012 Palo Verde Boys Soccer Capsule


Head coach: Kevin Hagood, 16th season

2011 record: 13-5-1 (11-4-1 Northwest)

Returning lettermen (starters): Eight (Six)

Top players: D Mitchell Scott (Sr.), D Josh Lockwood (Sr.), MF Tommy Wojciechowski (Sr.), GK Joshua Dinsmore (Sr.)

Outlook: The Panthers return six starters, but lost the bulk of their offense to graduation.

Scott, Wojciechowski and Lockwood combined for three goals and 10 assists last year. Dinsmore is back after recording eight shutouts.

“The team is made up of mostly juniors and seniors, but losing 90 percent of the offense from last season will be tough to replace,” Hagood said. “This team will have to create its own depth and playing experience.

“These players have some talent, but they are very inexperienced together. We will rely on new faces from some out-of-state move-ins, and players who were role players last season will have to start.”
