This past month, boys varsity soccer has beat Glendale varsity soccer not once, but two times. Kickapoo received first place after playing against the falcons in their second to last game of the Kickapoo Shootout Friday, October 2nd.
“It felt amazing to win the Kickapoo Shootout for the first time since I’ve been at Kickapoo, especially against Glendale,” senior Spencer Sharpe said.
A few days following Kickapoo’s win in the Shootout, they had another win against Glendale on Wednesday, October 7th. The game ended with a one-point lead in overtime creating a very exciting game. With a final score of 5-4, the Kickapoo boys soccer team finally got to take home the Southside Showdown trophy after years of it being locked up at Glendale High School.
“It was exciting to come back from 1-4 and win in overtime. Celebrating our win was a cool feeling that not everyone gets to experience,” junior Owen Bowler said.
