Erskine girls soccer coach Ryan Nored is still learning about opponents as his Eagles adjust to Class B this season after a few years in Class A. Otherwise, the transition has been a smooth one as the Eagles are 3-1-0 heading into today's game against Nokomis.
"The stronger teams are still as good as some of the teams we played last year," Nored said. "Right now the biggest difference is field conditions. There's some bad fields out there."
The Eagles may be deeper than most of the teams they play. Nored is carrying 17 players and all are getting significant minutes.
"It's not really by design," he said. "I've got 11 solid starters and six solid substitutes," Nored said. "I can sub in and there's no letdown."
Erskine's depth is such that when senior goalie Mattie Lajoie went out with a concussion, sophomore Cassandra Ray stepped in and the team didn't miss a beat.
"They're both pretty equal," Nored said.
Senior striker Jade Canak has drawn a lot of attention from defenders and only has two goals so far, but that's opened up opportunities for Tasha Dutil and Avery Bond.
"Jade has realized that," Nored said. "She's bought into the idea. That's how we scored against Mt. View. She's just as happy letting everybody else score."
