DEXTER- The Dexter Tigers boys soccer team will have a new coach, a new formation, and will be hoping for more wins in 2014.
Dexter finished with a 2-12 record last season.
"I am expecting an improved record this year as we have many returning players and some really good new additions,"Dexter coach Andrw Bermudez said. "Of our returning players, seven are seniors."
Bermudez takes over for long time coach Peter Murray. Bermudez was the assistant for Murray during the 2013 season. The new coach is installing a new formation that he is hoping plays into the strength of his key players.
Bermudez said, "I believe one area of strength is that we have is a new formation that we are trying and that will play to the strengths of our key players."
The new formation should be good for the Tigers in the long term. In the short term Bermudez will be looking to get his players used to it by the regular season opener against PCHS in two weeks.
"Some of the challenges that we face will be getting everyone used to the new formation in a short amount of time,"Bermudez said. "I believe we have a deeper bench then last year which is also going to really help."
.Bailey Spack - Forward, Jordan and Devan Gudroe - half back, Torin Smith - back, Josh Smith - goalie and Jacob Leighton - back are among the key players for the Tigers.
The Tigers will follow up their opener against PCHS with road games against Searsport and Central.
