WICHITA — As FC Wichita starts out there season with four away games, it seems to be a bit of a challenge not having the home crowd, eager to be back at home but have to be on the road for so long. Players have to get use to not being at home to start the season.
“It’s a weird start to the season,” Head Coach Sammy Lane said. “The good thing of course is give us time to get together, know each other and bond… we’re integrating some new players, kinda change the philosophy.”
Defender, Rachel Vanbuskirk is ready for the challenge for FC Wichita’s road trip.
“It’s definitely going to be hard, it’s definitely going to push us to are limits,” Vanbuskirk said. “I think if we work as a team, work together, and really talk and communicate, we’re good enough team to go far.”
The Women have to travel to Missouri and Illinois and see if they can start the season out with two or more wins and be back at Stryker Stadium with a good record.
“Maybe can get out of those four games, two and two, then you’re set with four games in a row that you should win your home games,” Lane said. “I thought we play really well, last sunday for our first game, that’s a very good team.”
With FC Wichita’s very own Stryker Stadium will be wait for FC Wichita as it will be a while till they get back home.
“We are really looking forward to the home opener, open up the new stadium, it should be a big crowd, Lane said. “There’s plenty of excitement and really looking forward to season rolling.”
FC Wichita’s next game is at SFG Lady Demize on Thursday, May 30 in Springfield, Missouri.
