As district play inches closer, Redhawks soccer will compete in the Denison tournament as preparation for district play. “We can try out various things to prepare ourselves for the season,” junior Lucas Godoy said.

The boys’ and girls’ soccer team saw mixed results on the pitch against Memorial on Tuesday with the girls tying the Warriors 1-1 at the Nest.

“It was really good, it was actually one of the funnest games I’ve been a part of in my coaching career,” girls’ head coach Kyle Beggs said. “It was a back and forth battle between what I felt were two very good soccer teams. The referees didn’t play a big part in it either, which is good, and they let the girls play. Both teams were really trying to play soccer from that angle. It was really fun to be a part of.”

It was a scoreless game until the last six minutes when the Warriors put the ball in the back of the net, leaving the Redhawks with little time to make a comeback.

“It was really stressful the last six minutes,” sophomore Bella Maraquin said. “You never like to give up late goals because they are hard to come back off of, but we scored with 37 seconds left to tie the game. We were all so proud of ourselves.”

The boys on the other hand took a 3-0  loss to Memorial at Memorial High School.

“We were dominating in possession, but we were struggling going forward and breaking down their defense,” junior Aaron Xu said. “The goals were conceded from defensive mistakes as a team.”
