The boys and girls soccer teams faced Kentucky Christian University at South Doyle High School on Oct. 4.
The boys played first. With fans chanting “let’s go Royals” from the stands and coach Spenser Proctor advising the team from the sideline, the boys put “in an amazing effort”, according to freshman Benjamin Strunk.
In the end, the team fell to the Kentucky Christian Knights 4-1 with the one goal being scored by Keenan Ross.
The girls followed later in the night. While they did lose to the Kentucky Christian Knights 3-2, they played a “stressful show stopper game,” according to freshman Will Clark. The two goals were scored by Abby Barron and Shelby Green. During the game, many of the fans got into various chants echoing throughout the stands including the word “koinonia”, the theme of chapel this semester.
The boys play next this Saturday at 1 p.m. versus Appalachian Bible College. The girls play next next Tuesday at 7 p.m. versus Welch College.
