Carroll County Snapshots

Matt Ward, Carroll Christian



STATS -- Ward, a senior, led the Patriots with 18 goals and 14 assists, helping the team to a 16-2-1 record and the championship of the five-state Mid-East Regional Christian School tournament. The center-forward had either two goals or two assists in several games this season, and had three assists against Red Lion (Pa.).

SIDELINES -- Despite the scoring statistics, Carroll Christian coach Matthew Reisberg said Ward takes even greater satisfaction in drawing defenders and then passing off to open teammates. "Some of the sweetest passes you're going to get are going to come from him," Reisberg said. Ward, one of 11 seniors on the team, also is a standout in basketball, in which he is a forward, and baseball, in which he is a hard-hitting center fielder. He is exploring the possibility of continuing his athletic career in college.
