WAVERLY, N.Y. — Waverly fell to Whitney Point 6-0 to open their boys’ soccer season Thursday.
Alfonso Perna had a hat trick for Whitney Point as they out shot Waverly 28-6 and had a 3-1 edge in corner kicks.
Cameron McIsaac made 26 saves in net for the Wolverines.
“Well this game didn’t go as well as we had hoped, but we have the philosophy that we either win or we learn, and we definitely learned a lot,” said Waverly coach Eric Ryck. “There are a lot of good takeaways from tonight and we are going to build on those, and work on fixing the things we need to fix. We need to get better at closing down the ball and just get more confident with the ball at our feet. This team has a great mindset and endless amounts of effort, this one game doesn’t define our season and I know without a doubt we will grow from here.”
