Millard West sophomore Diego Zapata takes a free kick against the Lincoln Southeast Knights. The Wildcats defeated the Knights 1-0 by winning the shoot-out in extra time. “In the extra time parts of the game we played them very smartly and defensively,” Zapata said. “We didnt want to try and make a big offensive push and then lose the ball and have no defenders.”

Millard West has had a great season thus far, and learned a lot better as a team. Although they have had a steady level of play, there are always things to improve. “One thing the team needs to work on is reading the game better and anticipating where the ball is going,” senior Johnson Lu said. “A lot of the time we’re too slow to react when we know a pass is coming.”

Senior Johnson Lu works the ball up the field in a game last year against South Sioux City. This offseason Lu played on a club team to continue to stay sharp and improve his skills. “I play club so I don’t really have an off-season,” Lu said. “We won state in the fall and we’ve been traveling to places like Phoenix, St. Louis, and South Carolina to play better teams and get more exposure.”

Along with the other members of the drumline, senior Braedon Johnson stands on the sideline to cheer Union Omaha on. Johnson enjoys getting to work with a nonprofit while doing what he loves. “I’m a big soccer fan, so this is right up my alley,” Johnson said. “During the game, we constantly make noise and sing chants while drumming.”

Millard West maintained possession most of the game. Although the team was on top, there were still some things they could work on. “We could have improved on finishing our shot chances, which would have given us four to five more goals, senior midfielder Nasser Nabulsi said. “I think we played well, overall, for our first game and not knowing how solid we would be.”
