The Bonney Lake Panther boys soccer team is geared up for winning this season.

Bonney Lake lost one senior from last season and coaches Luke Helling-Christy and Randy Jones expect big things from the team.

Jones said by email, “We have loaded our schedule up for preseason play with 4A teams (we compete South Puget Sound League 3A for state and league) to push the team to playoff run potential.”

A few players to watch include Zach Jones, a senior and a key to the Panthers defense, according to the coaches.

Junior Tyler John was the team’s leading scorer last season and will be attacking the goal again for the Panthers.

Jones said the team is loaded with juniors and the coaches are “looking forward to back-to-back good seasons this year and next.”

Bonney Lake traveled to Sumner Tuesday, past the press deadline. Check for scores.

The Panthers host Overlake at 7 pm. Tuesday.
