goalkeeper Carter Rood
, Syracuse.com reported.
Rood, a 14-year-old sophomore, died of congestive heart failure at his home.
"Monday we found out and had a team meeting at the end of the day. The boys and the girls teams came together and gathered for a prayer," Vikings coach Jake Preston said. "We talked about ways that we wanted to remember Carter on the soccer team and in the school. ... We spent probably the last five or 10 minutes and opened up the floor for personal stories. It was quiet at first but then they opened up. ... There was a lot of emotion in the room at that time."
Last Monday's scheduled game vs. Madison was postponed. Cincinnatus scored three goals in each half Friday and defeated Otselic Valley 6-2.
