Expectations high for Lyme boys’ soccer team

Lyme boys' soccer team

CHAUMONT, N.Y. (WWNY) - This could be a banner year for the Lyme boys' soccer team.

The Indians had a successful 2018 season.

They posted an 11-7 record overall, 10-6 in Frontier League play.

They lost to Belleville Henderson in the Frontier League D Division championship and fell to Cincinnatus in the Section 3 Class D quarterfinals.

That leaves expectations high for 2019.

"One thing I think we have a lot better this year is team chemistry," coach Robert Goutremout said. "Last year and I think the year before we lacked that a little and I think this year everybody's all on the same page and we're working really well together."

One reason for the high expectations is the addition of three Frontier League all-stars via transfer: Graham Rowland and Jake Bombard of Immaculate Heart and Kyle Gaumes of LaFargeville.

Adding that trio to the six returning starters from last year's team has Lyme looking to take care of some unfinished business, both in the Frontier League and Section 3.
