It is difficult to gauge a team's expectations in the first season under a new head coach. It can be more difficult when that head coach says he is not concerning himself with wins and losses.
That was the stance first year skipper Yoni Espinoza took following the team's loss to Lenoir City. Since starting 0-1-2, the team has begun to flourish.
The Redskins picked up their first win in a 1-0 overtime contest with Alcoa. Tuesday, they won 3-1 against Rockwood.
Loudon took control early on, gaining a 2-0 lead before the break.
Jesus Medina picked up the first goal of the game, followed not too far behind by Carlos Bedolla. Rockwood was able to score once in the second half, but then the Redskins responded when Medina netted his second goal of the contest.
Some changes made to the lineup by Espinoza from the one that took the field last season have paid off for Loudon.
One of the team's top goal scorers from 2012, Yunior Median, moved into a more defensive role where he has emerged as one of the top stoppers on the team.
A rotation of goalkeepers, made up of Juan Lopez and Caleb McKenzie, has also started to play more confidently for the young head coach, helping greatly in the team's recent wins.
The Redskins are scheduled to host Harriman Thursday at 6 p.m. before beginning what is likely the most trying stretch of their schedule.
They will begin a four-game road test April 10 that will take them to Christian Academy of Knoxville, Stone Memorial, Roane County High School and Oliver Springs. The first three are district matches for Loudon.
