District 9-5A soccer play continued Tuesday night with the Redhawks taking on Wakeland High School under the stadium lights.

The girls’ hosted the Wolverines but fell short 2-1.

“We played well in the first half,” senior Anna Clerkin said. “We died off at the beginning of the second half. But we picked up our energy at the end, so we are working towards keeping the energy up the whole game.”

It was an identical score at Wakeland, where the boys’ team also lost 2-1.

“That loss moved us from third place to fourth,” head coach Fred Kaiser said. “It got us tighter but we are still in a playoff spot.”

The teams don’t get a break as Wednesday they are back in action, playing at Centennial High School with the girls starting at 5:30 p.m., and the boys following approximately 20 minutes after.  

“We are really just trying to stay hydrated,” senior Johnathon Siv said. “Take lots of ice baths and just rest up for this week’s games.”
