Conquering the Knights on Friday night, the Redhawk soccer program beat Independence with the boys dominating 5-0 and the girls earning a 2-0 win.

“The players worked really hard and we did a lot better job at transitioning, keeping the ball on the ground, and keeping possession of the ball,” boys’ head soccer coach Fred Kaiser said. “It gives us a taste of what we should be doing. Anytime you have a win, obviously it boosts morale a bit, so we are heading into a pretty tough part of the schedule this week with Centennial and Lone Star, so hopefully the boys are confident.”

With four consecutive wins under its belt, the girls’ team is in third place in the District 9-5A standings with no intentions of holding back.

“Independence was the team in first place so we were confident but cautious going into the game,” senior Corinne Daniels said. “I am extremely proud of the team clenching the win and working so hard. Our current winning streak motivates us to keep it up. We had a slow start to district and because of that, we’re having to work that much harder to claw our way up to the top spot in order to go to playoffs.”
