GUILFORD-- The Piscataquis Community High School (PCHS) Pirates boys soccer team advanced to the class C semifinals as a number seven seed last season.

PCHS defeated Orono in a quarterfinal contest before falling to Fort Kent.

The Pirates will look to build on that successful season and make another deep run come tourney time.

"We hope to make another play off run this year," PCHS boys soccer coach John Riitano said. "Win 10 or more games, and make it deeper into the post season."

The Pirates will have a mix of young players and veterans that will provide much needed depth.

"We have a strong senior class and a strong underclassman showing that will see playing time, we have seven new incoming freshmen."Riitano said. "The team will be well balanced, and our team numbers are up, we have 28 this year."

Riitano has a strong senior class that will be hoping to end their high school soccer career with a bang.

"We should have a strong bench and we should be able to keep fresh legs on the field,"Riitano said. "I hope this senior class has a big season and ends their high school soccer career with a bang."

PCHS will open the season at Dexter. They will follow that up with three games at Guilford, that will include the home opener against Lee Academy.
