2013 Record: 7-7-1
Trout Lake, Washington
– Offense – 2nd in League, 17th in State
– Defense –1st in League, 7th in State
Offense – The offense expects to improve upon last years mark of 28 goals. Forward Juan Rico scored 8 goals and will again be a workhorse for the Trout Lake side. Corbin Steffy, James Baker, and Diego Cortez also return in offensive roles.
Defense – Trout Lake had a very good defense in 2013, ranking number 1 in their league in goals allowed. New personnel will need to be called on to maintain this level of play with goalkeeper Devin VanLaar graduating. JD Cox returns with plenty of experience.
Final Evaluation – Trout Lake has some pieces in place to be quite aggressive on offense. The defense has a few more holes to fill, but there is definitely enough returning talent across the board to make the Mustangs a legitimate contender for the CGL crown.
