Final district games for Redhawks soccer

Addyson Schick
Taking on Centennial for Tuesday’s last district game of the season, Redhawks girls’ soccer will hit the end of their line. However, the boys have playoffs at stake, with it all riding on Tuesday’s results.

It’s the final District 10-5A games for Redhawks soccer as they take on the Cenntenial Titians on Tuesday. The girls’ are looking to end their season on a high, while a win for the boys is crucial to solidify their chance at playoffs.

With Tuesday being her last game, it’s a bittersweet moment for senior Mikya Irwin.

“I’m happy that we’re ending the season how we are because we started off pretty rough, but have been able to come back and beat some of the better teams,” Irwin said. “I am sad though because I built great friendships on this team and don’t want them to end.”

The boys’ future is all on the line Tuesday, while there is a possibility the team could advance with a loss, a win would secure their playoff spot.

“Tonight’s game is super important,” junior Hector Jenkins said. “It’s probably the most important game of the season so far. We need to bring our energy and start off strong.”

Another factor playing into the boy’s playoff chances is the drama is the district. First in District 10-5A, Heritage High School’s legality is in question by the UIL, as they are rumored to be using an illegal player.

“So the UIL is so ruling on it I think this Wednesday or Thursday, they’ll make it official [their decision on Heritage],” assistant coach Kyle Parks said. “So there’s a player that possibly didn’t live within their area playing a bunch of games, which made them have to forfeit seven of their games [if the UIL rules that way], which means they’re no longer in first place [or] in playoff contention.”
