Red Devils dampen Indians’ soccer opener

Mike Kossey believes that when his varsity girls soccer players look beyond individual accomplishments and focus on Tecumseh’s team as a whole there is no telling how far they will go.Kossey replaced Matt Dailey as Tecumseh’s varsity girls soccer coach this season and he’s looking beyond individual accomplishments and focusing on the team as a whole.“The key for this group this year is to implement the old adage that it’s amazing how much you can get accomplished when no one’s concerned about receiving the credit,” he said.Kossey says he’ll have the Indians focus on the basics, trapping, controlling, carrying, distributing, with as close to pinpoint accuracy as possible. He has coached soccer for many years and said he had the pleasure of coaching many in this group before.The Indians opened their season at home against Grosse Ile on Monday, April 7, and had to deal with terrible cold and rainy weather, and a tough Red Devils squad that beat Tecumseh 5-0.“We are still upbeat and positive,” Kossey said after his first match with the Indians varsity team. “We’ll review the film and make the appropriate changes for the future matches.”Eight players return from last season including three seniors, Ann Kossey (midfield), Allison O’Leary (defense) and Katie Waterbury (midfield). The other seniors are Alexis Aton (midfield), Jana Heineking (defense), Geni Nowak (defense), and Mithra Tolner (defense).Junior goalie Jordan Kreger also returns to help defend the net. Other returning juniors include Cassandra Brown (forward), Olivia Nowak (midfield) and Madison Tedora.Madison Howe returns to the Indians as a sophomore while sophomores Albany LaGore (midfield) and Maggie Ross (defense) are new to the team.“We’re strong on strikers on the top and have a solid base on defense,” said Kossey. “And, we’re filling in the middle to get a complete well rounded attack and defense established.”The Indians’ junior varsity team tied Grosse Isle 0-0.
