Coach: Matt Erickson (third year)

Last year’s record: 12-4, lost in Western C semifinal

Returning letter winners: Seniors — Nick Brigham (G), Deryck Beliveau (FB), Josh Charest (MF), Trevar Haefele (MF), Garrett Darnell (MF), Shayne Curtis (FB); Juniors
— Jack Erickson (F), Alex Parker (F), Kurt Johnson (MF), Brian Mathieu (FB).

Key losses:  Spencer Teixeira (F), Casey Parker (MF), Aaron Allen (G), Jon Mulderig (MF), Ben Randall (MF), Matt Barlion (F), Matt Barrett (FB), Joe Klemanski (FB)

Promising newcomers: Seniors — Cam Brown (MF), Jameson Peterson (FB); Junior   — Kyle Hargreaves (FB); Sophomores  — Cam Hainey (MF), David Dean (MF); Freshmen   — Will Desmarais (F), Robert St. Hilaire (F), Dakota Keene (MF).

Outlook: Barlion and Randall were both all-state players in the midfield and leave a significant void, but the Saints have a strong group of returning players especially on defense. Darnell is back after missing most of last year to an injury. Brigham is a veteran in goal. St. Dom’s will get a new look in the MVC this year but should be one of the stronger teams and be in the playoff hunt.

Coach’s comment:

“We should have a good understanding of one another on the field with eight starters returning. Our early season training and games have exceeded my expectations, but we can always do some things better. A strong freshman class will continue to develop.” — Coach
