King’s Fork High School’s boys’ soccer team picked up its first win of the season on Tuesday, topping Ironclad Conference rival and host Lakeland High School, 2-0.

Bulldogs head coach Michel Bilé made some changes to the lineup, moving players around on the field, and saw benefits come out of it. He was excited by his team’s performance.

“I think it was a step forward, because honestly, we had so many chances, and it could have easily been about 12-0 with the opportunities that we had,” he said.

Sophomore Drequan Wilson and freshman Sterling McGee each scored goals in the first half for King’s Fork.

One key move that Bilé made was putting senior team captain Oludare Olugbemi at striker. Though for some players this change might simply translate into their taking more shots on goal, Olugbemi prominently employed his passing skills, assisting both scores.

King’s Fork (1-3, 1-0) visited Deep Creek High School on Wednesday and hosts Nansemond River High School on Friday.
