Nobody won when the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams took on the Independence Knights on Tuesday, with both teams earning draws. 

For the boys, that meant a 1-1 score at Independence. 

“Things we can do better is communicating as a team and being more supportive of each other,” junior Ryan Lee said, “Obviously we wanted to win, but we are feeling more optimistic as the season goes on.”

Going down by a goal early, Tuesday’s rain storm ended up helping the boys’ according to assistant coach Kyle Parks. 

“Players couldn’t find their footing, and shots and passes really skipped across the surface,” Parks said. “That skipping effect contributed to our goal and helped us coming back from being down 1-0. We are pleased with the result, it would have been easy for our players to mentally give up.”

Back at The Nest, the girls’ team started off down 2-0, but came back to finish with a 2-2 draw.

“I feel pretty happy with the score of the game,” senior Reese Brown. “Because we were down and came back against Independence, a really good team.”
