Offense – A wealth of experienced players return but who will fill the role played by Jack Russillo remains a major question. William Coe will likely be the key offensive player after netting 6 goals in 2013. The midfield will be anchored by Wylie Kau. Henry McMurray will also provide a nice skill set in the midfield.
Defense – A year after allowing 83 goals the Viking will look to shore up some of the defensive issues that plagued them in 2013. Losing one to two defensive starters to graduation and a senior goalkeeper may limit any changes. Most of the younger players on the squad have some defensive experience. Sophomore goalkeeper Luke Bronn returns in the net.
Final Evaluation – Orcas Island welcomes back a solid group of returning starters, but there may be uncertainty at who will be a playmaker, and the demanding Northwest District schedule is not an easy one. The defense must show improvement. Orcas Island will be a better in 2014, and in 2013 they were just a game away from the District Tournament.
