Defensive-minded Bulldogs motivated to end state tourney drought
Defensive-minded Bulldogs motivated to end state tourney drought.
“Motivation has never been a question,” senior Dillon Tabares said.
“That’s what gives us our confidence coming into the season, having such a strong back line and such a good senior class to play with,” Dunn said.
Bettendorf surrendered just three goals in nine conference matches last spring.
“I have no doubt we’ve got one of the best defenses in the whole state of Iowa,” Tabares said.
Bettendorf lost its top two offensive weapons from last year in Seaberg (19 goals) and Juan Pablo Jimenez (10 goals).
Rollinger registered eight goals a season ago and Harris scored for Bettendorf in its scrimmage last week against North Scott.
Even so, Dunn admits Bettendorf’s offensive makeup will be different than recent seasons.
“If we can score goals, sky is the limit.
“It means everything to get back to that point,” he said.
