Boys soccer headed to playoffs for first time in High School’s history
For the first time in the history of Wareham High School, the boys varsity soccer team will be headed to the playoffs. With four games left in the regular season, the team has an overall record of 8-2-2.
Coach Evan Wilga said the team had a six-game win streak this season, which he’s never seen in his time as coach.
Wilga noted several players who have been assets to the team this season:
Ryker King, a senior who went to Upper Cape for a few years, has “been a huge asset,” playing forward and scoring 19 goals with eight assists.
Senior Luke Wiley is “definitely an engine for us,” Wilga said.
Ben Brogioli is “a fantastic defender.”
Wilga said the team has benefited from playing an independent schedule this season, like the football team. That means they are facing similarly-sized schools, rather than the whole South Coast Conference, which includes several Voc Tech and regional schools. Wilga said Wareham is “really small fish in a pretty big pond” in the conference.
Playoffs will begin in early November.
