KENDALL – Looking to bounce back from last year’s 4-6 Genesee Region League and 4-12 overall record, the Kendall Eagles boast a large contingent of returnees.

That veteran group includes seniors Tim Elphick (defense), David Hardenbrook (midfield), Tyler Johnson (defense), Garrett Love (goalie), Dan Miller (midfield), Alex Sutphen (midfield) and Richard Swift (defense) along with juniors Justin Barrett (forward), William Condo (defense), Mookie Nauden (forward) and Riley Iqbal (midfield).

“We expect to improve on our record,” said second year Coach Brian Duffy. “I feel more comfortable with a year under my belt. Defensively we should be solid. The key for us is we have to put the ball in the net. We had trouble doing that last year.”
