took the league ti­tle but have been plagued by a higher than usual num­ber of grad­u­ates, mak­ing it trule a re­build­ing cam­paign. Ad­ding to the woes have been a cou­ple of crip­pling in­juries, with Aditya Ma­jithia go­ing down due to an an­kle in­jury, fol­lowed by Vin­cent Briven­ing.

But with three play­ers com­ing back from Team New Bruns­wick there have been some pos­i­tive signs.

The trio in­cludes Lo­gan Reid, Car­los Pon­ton Arndt and Joe Caswell and they have proven to be true lead­ers.

An­other fine player added this year is Emil Haardt, an ex­change stu­dent from Ger­many.

So, much like the foot­ball team, Wheaton finds play­ers who spent part of their va­ca­tion per­form­ing with pro­vin­cial teams, are com­ing back just that much bet­ter. Ac­cord­ing to the New Bruns­wick In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion stand­ings, the Tantra­mar Ti­tans men’s soc­cer squad cur­rently sits in sec­ond place in the AA East­ern Con­fer­ence with a sea­son record of two wins, three losses and one tie. The Ti­tans downed JMA Arm­strong 3-0 in their sea­son opener Sept. 20; fell 3-0 to École Clé­ment-cormier Sept. 25; were blanked by scores of 3-0 and 3-0 in a dou­ble­header against Louis-j.-ro­bichaud

Sept. 27; won 4-2 against École Clé­ment-cormier Oct. 2 and tied Louis-j.-ro­bichaud 0-0 on Oct. 4. The Ti­tans next see ac­tion

Oct. 11 in Sal­is­bury when they square off against JMA Arm­strong High School.
