The second half of the District 9-5A soccer season kicked off Tuesday night against the Memorial Warriors, and ended with the girls’ team losing (1-0) and the boys’ team getting a 1-1 draw.

“Possession was a strength for us, as we’ll continue to work on shooting and putting the ball in the back of the net,” boys’ head coach Fred Kaiser said. “In the first half we kind of struggled getting shots and and getting crosses across, starting to, you know, put a lot of bodies in the box but they started fixing them a second half. But we played better during the second half then the first.”

Losing to the Warriors 7-2 when the teams met in early January, the girl’s team were unable to get a ball in the back of the net as they fell 1-0.

“The game was frustrating because we played very well and worked very hard but we’re just unlucky with our chances,” junior Kallin Brown said. “We need to work on our constructive criticism and playing with heart, but we were very controlled.”
