Celina Boys Soccer, A Year To Remember
Celina Coach Ryan JenkinsWe have great leadership and experience with our 12 Seniors this season. It has been 11 years since our last WBL title, so it's great to see this team accomplish a goal that is not easy to do.
The veteran Celina Boys Soccer team is making 2016 a season to remember. Last night the Bulldogs put the cherry on top of the sundae with a 5-2 win over Kenton to clinch an outright title and undefeated WBL season (9-0). The title is the first since 2005 and is the 5th in school history.
The Bulldogs who are 15-1 on the season are currently #5 in Ohio in D II, state voters started to take notice when they beat St. Marys in late September 2-1.
The Green and White outscored their WBL opponents 37-8 during the season; including 4 shutouts.
Celina is the #1 seed in the Elida D II District and will play the winner of the #10 seed Defiance-#9 seed Van Wert game in Celina this coming Wednesday (October 19th).
