Back to back matches for soccer

Soccer is heading into their second half of District 10-5A play on Tuesday as both teams take on Walnut Grove for the second time this season. The girls head into the second half of district play in search of their first win, and the boys, who have not lost in their past four games, are looking for revenge on the Wildcats.

After a week-long hiatus the Redhawks soccer teams were back in action Tuesday night against the Heritage Coyotes. 

The girls’ team played first at the Coyotes Den and were able to end the night with a 4-0 win.

“It was a really fun game,” senior Avery Jennings said. “In less than five minutes we scored and that really set the tone for the rest of the game. It was a great start to this long week.”

The girl’s are hoping to continue their momentum as they take on Lebanon Trail at Toyota Stadium Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m.

“We have three games this week due to the weather last week,” Jennings said. “With two of the games being back to back we are really just trying to rest and recover.”

Facing Heritage at The Nest, the boys’ team got a crucial three points, beating the Coyotes 2-1, and vaulting the team from 5th place in District 9-5A to a tie for third, with only the top four advancing to the playoffs. 

“We were a little rusty but we always come out on top,” junior Tommy Garafallo said. 

The boy’s also take on Lebanon Trail Wednesday night at Toyota Stadium, with kick-off approximately 20 minutes after the girls’ game ends. 

“Our main focus is to win every game from here on out,” Garafallo said.
