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.

The Redhawks soccer  teams took on the Heritage Coyotes on Friday with the girls’ team winning 6-0 on Senior Night.

“It felt really good to get that win,” sophomore Lily Gibbons said. “Wins like these give us a boost of confidence, which is something you need on the field. This will also help give us a boost for the rest of our games.”

With the Heritage boys’ team currently in first place in District 10-5A, the boys’ team faced a more challenging game, losing 1-0 in the Coyotes den.  

“Bummed out with the loss, but gained a lot of positives from the game,” senior Anthony Alston said. “Our teams’ organization defensively was very good, and we created a load of positive chances against the best team in our district. We were Heritage’s toughest opponent yet, and their coaches believed we were the better team on the night.”

According to assistant coach Kyle Parks, what cost the boys was the lack of a finishing touch in front of the goal. 

“We hope to continue our successful work and tactics and hope that that turns into more results on the scoreboard,” Parks said. “We just need to finish more of our chances.”
