Girls Soccer: Expectations high for Canon-McMillan

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Canon-McMillan girls soccer team.

"Canon-McMillan girls soccer coach Dave Derrico has approached all 13 of his seasons as head coach of the program the same way -- with high expectations.

Those expectations are turned up a little higher this season and with good reason.

The Big Macs graduated only four seniors from last year. All but one starter is back. Senior goalie Kyra Murphy, a Duquesne University recruit, is one of the best keepers in the WPIAL if not the state.

Also, Derrico has more depth than usual. He says he is comfortable going five deep to the bench with no drop-off in level of play."
