The Redhawks soccer teams traveled to Emerson on Tuesday, with the girls winning 7-0, while the boys tied the Mavericks for the second time this season, 2-2.

“I think we outplayed them for the majority of the game,” senior Onur Koseoglu said. “It just came down to finishing chances in the end for us, and we couldn’t capitalize. But we did well putting them under pressure and playing off of their mistakes.”

 After a loss to Independence on Friday, the big win over Emerson was a confidence boost for the girls.

“I am very proud of us as a team because we were able to come out and show the talent we have, especially coming from a not so good game but we were able to bounce back,” junior Mikya Irvin said. “It really boost our confidence being able to score a lot of goals because we know that all of our hard work is paying off and our results show that.”

With Centennial losing to Lebanon Trail on Friday and the Redhawks winning on Tuesday, the girls team solidified a spot in playoffs.

“We kinda told them that they’re one of the lucky teams,”  girls’ head coach Kyle Beggs said. “There are just a few teams that get to know while they’re still in their regular season that they are going to be in the playoffs. So I feel the girls did a really good job last night, moving the ball and scoring some really good goals.”
