EVERETT, Pennsylvania (WTAJ) – Tough is the word that comes to mind when Everett soccer players talk about the 2020 season.
“Tough. We faced a lot of adversity, injuries and COVID,” said senior linebacker Calvin Iseminger. “Overall tough.”
Everett went 0-6 in Dave Lightner’s second season, with the team struggling on both sides of the ball. It was a disappointing sequel to Lightner’s first season in which the team went 2-8. But “put the past in the past?” It is not exactly what Indians think is best as they tend to adopt a “live and learn” mentality.

“I’ve learned that I don’t want to lose anymore. I’m done losing. I can’t do it again, ”said Iseminger. “I think anyone can say that they have learned something from every game over the last year.”
“I would like to forget, but it’s a really good learning point for me and the team,” added quarterback Malex Akers. “It shows us how much it hurts to lose. We don’t want to take this route again, so hopefully it gives the guys motivation to improve their game. “
