The Niles North Boys varsity soccer season kicked off to a great start on Sep. 3rd with a Vikings win over Glenbrook North High School.

The team kept their momentum going after a successful showing at the Glenbrook South High School Invite on Aug. 28th, 29th, and 31st. At the invite, they earned a hard-fought victory against Loyola (1-0), tied both Warren (0-0) and Mundelein (2-2), and lost to Wheeling (0-1).

The coaches and players alike have high hopes for their season, with varsity Coach Yoon Lee believing that his team has dramatically improved from last year.

“We have an up-tempo team of players who look to attack, much more so than last year.” Lee said.

This was clearly evident when the Vikings played the Spartans at home on Tuesday evening. With the crowd cheering them on, the Vikings proceeded to win the game easily, with a final score of 3-1.

Senior Jake Douglas believes his team could have a very successful season, citing the team’s chemistry and willingness to help one another.

“This season I feel like we have a real chance at going far.” Douglas says. “I know that’s a cliche and that everyone says it, but in the four years of being on the team I’ve never seen a group that’s this cohesive.”

The varsity team continued their victory streak by tying against Lake Forest High School on Sep. 4. The final score was 1-1.

Niles North underclassmen have been successful on the soccer field as well with impressive results from the junior varsity and freshmen boys’ soccer teams.

JV won their match against Hoffman Estates (2-1) this past Tuesday while the freshmen soccer team had an enormous victory against Lake Park the 31st of Aug., beating them 8-0.
