The Wolfpack coasted to an easy 4-0 victory over the Tigers on a cool, wet evening Thursday night as they improved their record to 3-2.

"We are looking to continue on the path of excellence this year," said Great Oak coach Jeremiah Marquez . "We are striving to defend our league title. If we are able to make the playoffs, our goal is to get out of the first round successfully. We have had a problem with that the last few years."

Junior Max Lundquist led the Wolfpack as he scored two goals, both in the first half. Fellow juniors Joe DiCarlo nd Joey Ciochetto each scored for Great Oak.

The top players on the team are Striker Jack Richins, Defender Cole Drechsler and Midfielder Chris Le. "Our biggest challenge this year will be how well, and how fast, we can mesh or gel as a team," said Marquez. "We graduated seven big time players that brought experience to last year’s team. This year we are a bit younger and inexperienced."

The Wolfpack likes to play as many upper classmen as they can. "One of our big goals every year is to get our seniors as much exposure as possible to fulfill their collegiate aspirations," added the coach. "It doesn’t matter if the boys want to play at the next level or not, we push all our boys to continue their education".

Great Oak will begin league play on January 14th against the Murrieta Valley Nighthawks.
