WRC Men’s Soccer Interview with Joey Holodinski

After winning the Western Reserve Conference 3-2 against Madison on Tuesday night, I had the chance to speak with Junior Joey Holodinski about what it meant for their team to win such a big game against a good team.

Q1 – What’s your name, grade, and position? 

A1 – Joey Holodinski, 11th grade, forward

Q2 – What does it mean to your team to be WRC Champions?

A2 – Winning the WRC means a lot. Our team made it a goal to win the WRC this year and we did. We have worked so hard throughout the season to win it and it makes it feel so much better that it was a team effort.

Q3 – Did your team prepare for this game differently than any other game?

A3 – Our team prepared for the game a little differently. We thought that the game was going to be easy but it definitely was not. We knew we had to come out strong if we wanted to win and we didn’t. We ended up with the win which was great but I personally think we could have played better.

Q4 – Seems like after the second goal to tie the game, you guys had momentum to finish it. Do you feel that it was momentum that helped you guys win the game?

A4 – I think there was a little momentum with the second goal. It definitely gave us the edge over Madison and it helped us win the game.

Q5 – What do you feel that your team succeeded the most in this game?

A5 – I think our team showed that we can fight for the win which I was really happy to see. We showed that even if we are down 2-0 we can still come out with a win.

Q6 – With playoffs coming up, do you see this team doing well?

A6 – I think our team is going to do really well. We have a bye this year in the first round because we are seeded very high. We have some tough competition after our bye week but I think we can get a few games into the playoffs.
