The Webster Schroeder 2011 boys soccer team set the bar high for following teams to match.
"We set some marks this year," said Schroeder coach Dave Urbanski on Sunday night after the team arrived back home from Middletown. "You can't go much higher unless you win the state championship,"
The Warriors (20-2-1) ended the season in the State Class AA final, but came up short as Hicksville (Section 11, 18-1-2) won 1-0 to claim the state trophy.
"We scouted Hicksville," Urbanski said. "They play a contrasting style. They're big and physical. They knock the ball deep and put tons of pressure. With their size, they create opportunities on every single cross.
"We had our plan, and we definitely outplayed them in the first half," Urbanski said. We outshot them 5-1. We had a chance on a free kick.
