All-league team honors Reed City soccer players

REED CITY —  The recently completed boys soccer season for Reed City was a building one with two wins under coach Matt Webster. But the Coyotes also had three players that earned all-conference honors from the Central State Activities Association.

Senior Wyatte Baker was on the first team while sophomore Quinton Kichak and senior Taylor Weiss were on the honorable mention list.

Baker played at various positions including center midfield for Reed City. He had a goal against Big Rapids and had two assists this season.

“He was the guy I could count on and was captain for me,” said Webster. “He came and did his best every day, even though it was a tough season and he’s one of the older guys. We only had two seniors. He was a real good leader for me and one of our best athletes. I was proud of the effort he brought on a daily basis.”

Kichak was striker for the Coyotes and was the leading scorer with seven goals.

“He put a lot of balls in the net for us,” Webster said. “He was tenacious up front. He represents what we have coming up in the future. He’s a big part of the soccer program. I know he’s been playing forever. His older brother played keeper for some of the Reed City teams before. It was fun building our coach-player relationships this year. I’m looking forward to what he can do in the future. He’ll just continue to get better.”

Weiss played sweeper for the Coyotes and occasionally saw action at goalkeeper. He had two assists for the season.

“He’s was one of the oldest guys on the team and did some leader things for us,” Webster said. “He’s fast and is probably one of our best placekickers. When we have free kicks, corner kicks even goal kicks sometimes, he would kick the ball well for us.”
