Brookwood soccer seniors prepare for postseason


Fresh off a second place finish in GISA 3-AAA, Brookwood’s soccer squad eyes the opening round of the state tournament on Wednesday against John Milledge Academy.

Led by senior co-captains Alex Carico and Jack Howard, the Warriors hope to go deep in their final playoff opportunity after having reached the state championship game as freshmen in 2011.  Carico, an All-Region selection as a defender in 2013, has played more in the center midfield for the Warriors this year in Coach Brett Phillips’ system providing some badly needed stability and ball movement through the midfield but still occasionally anchors the defense when needed. Howard, a two-time All-Region selection, is the career leader in goals scored at Brookwood with 41, and leads the Warriors attack from the center forward position. 

Teams familiar with Brookwood have concentrated on slowing Howard down this year, but Phillips’ new system has allowed for others to get involved in the attack and has produced goals by 6 other Warriors during the 2014 campaign.

Wednesday’s game begins at 4 p.m. from the Brookwood soccer complex.
