2014 Outlook

Offense – Change in the offensive makeup will be major factor this fall for Saint George’s School. The Dragons scored 104 goals in 2013. But most of the weapons that fueled that attack are gone. Erik Muelheims, Nik Avakyan, Nathan Furbeyre, Corey Spalding and Eric Wang are all graduated.  The Dragons must replace 5 of their 6 leading scorers.   SGS however believes in reloading over rebuilding. The steady Michael Hamilton will lead the attack to replace Muelheims. Midfielder Stow Miller will be a key player and Collin Cremers will be a steadying force linking defense to offense. If a forward can develop, and the younger players prove capable, the Dragons will be dangerous.

Defense – The Dragons defense has become a major strength, as they have been smart, aggressive and dependable. The heart of the defense returns in Matt Arlt, who is one of the state’s best defenders. In goal, SGS will greatly miss graduated keeper Peter Worrall, a three time All-State 1st Team Keeper.

Final Evaluation – SGS is one of the most consistent programs in the state, with 4 Final Four appearances in 6 years. The Dragons have yet to solve the State Final riddle. Melville has a stingy defense that will improve and the skills on offense to replace some of the major losses, which might allow them to stay in the discussion as state title contenders this fall.
