Both girls’ and boys’ soccer team sought wins leading into spring break, but both teams fell 1-0 to the Independence Knights on March 8. Despite the loss, the girls remain in the fourth, and final playoff spot, in District 9-5A.

“I thought we played really good considering we had to play a man down majority of the game,” senior Emma Mason said. “The main problem that contributed to the loss were, I think, the refs and not having all of our strong players on the field.”

The loss to the Knights was the first time in school history the boys’ team lost to Independence, with the winning goal coming off a free kick with just 14 second remaining.

“It was a really frustrating game,” senior Justin Parri said. “I am disappointed because we fought hard, but there were factors out of our control and we ran out of time to come back.”
