rush to see the ball in the net

To: D. Scott Fritchen

The topic is goal-scoring technology and, well, a senior forward at Kansas State University. Kyler Goins I’m having a hard time explaining everything. For her, scoring goals seems a little easier than talking about it.

“The moment before goal is calm, but once you score, it’s like, ‘Man, I want one more,'” she says. I’m pumping so hard that I don’t even realize I’ve done it…but I want something different and something else.”

With eight goals, Goins is the second-most scorer in K State history. She is also tied for fourth with 17 career points. Last season marked her career best year with 4 goals, 8 points, 35 shots and 13 shots in her second season with the Wildcats.

At 5-foot-5 from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, he’s a magician with a soccer ball. K-State needs to prepare for its final two non-conference home matches against Yale (Friday) and Colorado (September 15) before moving to South Dakota (September 18) Stuff. K-State then kicks off the Big 12 Conference season in Iowa on Sept. 22 in Ames, Iowa.

“Most of her work from getting the ball and defending high positions allows her to open up the game a little more,” K-State’s head coach said. Mike Divini Say. “She understands her role as a leader.”

Senior Marisa Weichel One of her best friends is called “Energy Ball”.

“I love Kyler,” says Weichel. “I’m so proud of her. This is her last year and I want the best for her. I know how hard she works.” .She works hard, fits in the right place and takes great shots, she deserves it.”

Against UTRGV on 25 August, she scored her first goal of the season and the first winning goal of her career with A strike that bounces off the crossbar and hits the net. Three days later she scored her second goal of the season for her UTSA.

Goins scored his third goal of the season against Purdue at Bazaar Family Park on Sunday with a shot into the bottom right corner of the goal from 25 yards down the left side of the field.

What was Goins’ most memorable goal?

That was on October 7 against No. 9 West Virginia when he tied the game with an 18-yard 20-yard to the top right corner rocket minute. It was his third tying goal in K-State history and the first in his Buser Family Park history in six years. The Wildcats beat the Mountaineers to a 1–1 draw.

“That was probably my highest goal,” Goins says. “We were tied.

K-State has had its ups and downs so far this season, but there was a time when all the Goins knew was victory. In 2017, she led Union High School to the Class 6A State Championship. She then went on to become considered by as the 5th best rated player in the South Region while she appeared on her club soccer team, the TSC Hurricanes ECNL.

Her success and athleticism aren’t necessarily out of line given her father Aaron played soccer and baseball in Oklahoma from 1989 to 1990, and her sister Parker now plays professional soccer in Louisville. Not shocking.

“Shout out to my father, honestly,” Goins says. “Everywhere we go, they say, ‘You’re Aaron Goins.’ It feels good. He’s like a celebrity in Oklahoma.”

Goins carved a name for himself while at Union High School, but found himself lost in the mix during his freshman season in Arkansas, where he attended to join Parker on the Razorbacks team. I was. Goins finished with just one assist and he had two shots in his 11 games. This led her to enter a transfer portal, leading to a conversation with Divini.

“I knew I was a good player, but I was down with myself,” Goins says. “As soon as I entered the portal, Director Divini called me and said, ‘I want you. I believe in you.'” That really lifted me up. I’m the same player as before.

“Manhattan is not far from my house and I love the coaches and the players.

It paid off handsomely.

Soccer in Kentucky needs the Goins’ attention, but she realizes there’s more to it than track and field. She has a passion for criminology and sociology majors and she is aiming to enroll in the police academy next September.

“I want to be a police officer,” she says. “I’m really excited to get it started.”

But first, she knows she has a lot to finish. This includes the Big 12 seasons. The goal is to help the Wildcats qualify for the Big 12 tournament for the first time in their history, but that’s not a particularly easy task given the strength of talent across the league.

“We want to showcase what we can do,” she says. “I’m really excited. I hope we can come out and bring that.”

Goins wants to contribute to the score.

“Scoring is very contagious,” said Goins, who has scored four goals in 11 games so far last season. “It feels good to do it for the team. I just want to keep serving my team.”

It may be difficult for Goins to explain his goal-scoring art, but watching a soccer ball fly into the net evokes a familiar feeling that never gets old.

“It’s an adrenaline rush,” she says. “I always want more.”
