It’s safe to say that Bellarmine varsity men’s Soccer is “going the distance,” as mentioned in team favorite song, “The Distance” by Cake.

The team has amassed positive results in their first few matches, kicking off the season this month with a 3-0 victory over Rogers and a draw with Sumner, as well as a five-nil victory over Olympia, where goals from Max Hilger, Tommy Martin and a notable hat trick from Kyle Casey were scored. Bellarmine men’s soccer appears to be promising, and their determination is visionary.

“With Sumner probably being our greatest competition this year, it was great to get a tie at 1-1. I have a feeling it’s going to be a really strong season,” said junior Reece Zurfluh, who plays right wing.

Junior left back Adam Osness added, “We’re hungry for a state championship this year! I think that’s our main drive,” said Osness.“From a defensive perspective, we want to have shutouts at home.”

Senior center midfielder Nick Vipond said, “I think our biggest issue is figuring out our formation; we have to work on that a little bit more. We want to do well in league and win it, or at least we’re hoping to. Another one of our goals is to get to state and do better than last year.”

When asked if any player has impressed so far this season, both Osness and Vipond mentioned Noah Welch. “He actually plays a right back, but he’s been playing as an attacking center midfielder. He’s definitely a big part of the team,” said Osness.
