Southlake Style

2016 Boys Soccer

May 24, 2016 03:57PM ● Published by Tyler Hicks

Even though the Dragons fell short of their state championship aspirations, the 2016 season proved to be an enjoyable one for Coach Oglesby and his team. Improving throughout the season, Southlake Carroll played its best soccer during the most crucial stretch towards the end of the season. “It was a great season,” says Oglesby. “This was a tremendously hard-working focused group. When you play this many games and only lose a couple, you have to be doing something right.”

The Dragons were led by junior Calvin Herd, who was the team leader in goals (19), while finishing second in assists (six) on his way to District Offensive MVP Honors. Helping orchestrate the offense was junior midfield Michael Kays. Playing the role of conductor for a Carroll team that lit up the scoreboard with over 60 goals, he paced the Dragons with 10 assists. Notching a goal and an assist in Carroll’s first round playoff victory over Midlothian, Nat Kajawara also provided plenty of firepower to Southlake’s front line. His 18 goals were good enough for second on the team. Returning their top two scorers and leading assist man in 2017, the Dragons should be very dangerous as they look to bring a state championship title back to Southlake.

Season Update

15-4-4

The Carroll Dragon boys soccer team competed hard throughout the 2016 season.  Demolishing opponents on their way to a playoff berth, Southlake Carroll finally met its match, losing 2-1 to Plano East in the area round of the 6A playoffs. Always relentless in their efforts, Coach Oglesby’s team didn’t go out without a fight. Defeating Midlothian, 2-0 in the bi-district round of the postseason, the Carroll finished the year 16-5-4 (8-3-1).  Finishing third in district 7-6A, the Dragons came just a goal short from knocking state championship finalist Coppell in their last matchup of the season.  With that being said there are many reasons for this years team to hold their heads up high.  Before bowing out in the playoffs, the Dragons won their final four games to close out the regular season, including victories over district opponents LD Bell, Haltom and 7-6A runner up Colleyville Heritage. Getting revenge on the Panthers after losing in their first meeting of the season, Carroll  rolled over Heritage 3-1. Heading into next season, the Dragons look to replace six seniors from this year’s team. Always up for the challenge look for Coach Oglesby to reload in 2017.
