The formula to make the playoffs for the boys’ soccer team was both simple, and complicated. A win Tuesday night at Memorial Stadium against Lone Star, and the team was in. Entering the night in a tie for the fourth and final playoff spot with Reedy in District 9-5A, the Redhawks had one sure path to the playoffs: beating the Rangers. 

Mission accomplished. 

The Redhawks scored once, and kept a clean sheet to win 1-0.

“It feels good going to the playoffs at least once during my four years on the team,” senior Johnathon Siv said. “From here on out, we are just gonna keep doing what we have been all year.”

At The Nest, it was the last time more than a dozen seniors would take the field for the girls’ soccer team. 

However, it was Rangers that walked away with a 4-2 win. 

“Honestly, it was a fun game,” senior Avery Jennings said. “Coach Beggs started all of the seniors in the second half and let the whole field be seniors. That was really fun to watch. Then he pulled one off at a time and let them leave the field for the last time. Everyone clapped for everyone it was a really cool thing to be a part of.”
