Reed City goalkeeper plays final game
REED CITY – The Reed City soccer season ended earlier this week along with a four-year varsity career for goalkeeper Jordon Lofquist.
The Coyotes started out the season strong but ran into some challenges against tough competition as the season progressed.
“We have to keep talking and pass the ball and communicate,” Lofquist said.
The final loss came on Wednesday in the district in a 5-2 setback to Hart.
Lofquist was keeper every season for the Coyotes. He played the sport 13 years.
“I was able to get down to the ball and get it in the air,” he said.
It wasn’t until the first of September when soccer teams like Reed City knew for sure they would be having a season. An early-season win over Kingsley was a memorable moment.
“We blew them out and it was a big game,” Lofquist recalled. “We talked and we passed the ball.”
Lofquist remembers many years ago when his coach at the time asked for volunteers for goalkeeper. He decided to try it out and never regretted his decision.
