>Ridgewood Sports: LAX Parents claim Coach Pounds punished the team by losing on purpose

Many RHS lax parents angry at coach Pounds. #6 Ridgewood played the #11 team in the states and lost. The coach refused to start his senior goalie (would not give a reason). He passed over all the other goalies in the program and started his inexperienced freshman son – IN THE STATE PLAYOFF!!! We were missing 3 sophomores but in this game it would not have mattered. It was easily winnable.

The opponent scored 6 times on 8 attempts. A freshman on the West Windsor team scored his first goal of the year. In an interview on the Ridgewood Patch the player from West Windsor said “Luckily, the ball went through the keeper’s legs, but I’ll take it anyway…. It’s a great feeling.”

Pounds was unhappy with the team all year and was looking to end the season. He shamed himself in an attempt to punish the team. Many seniors did not even get to play in the last game.

When you go to a game you should play to win. We have a loser for a coach and RHS deserves better. Tell the wellness director to place the “help wanted” ad. We need a leader for a coach.
