Wednesday, May 12th, the Kickapoo varsity girls soccer team beat Glendale for a conference championship for the fifth year in a row. Ending the game with a three point lead, the girls got to take the Southside Showdown trophy back home. “It was really nerve wracking going into the biggest game of the year but I knew that we could pull it off,” senior, Chloe Young said.

The Kickapoo LadyChiefs defeat the Glendale Falcons 4-1.

Sophomore, Sabrina Jones, led the game with two goals followed by a goal from both Junior, Abby Light and Sophomore, Abby Bilbao.

“The feeling I got in my stomach when the whistle blew was crazy. There were so many emotions before, during, and after the game. We all played our best games and it was good competition. I think our matching braids really helped bring the trophy back home,” sophomore, Vanessa Maturey said.

They LadyChiefs ended their season 18-3 and are now preparing for districts in the upcoming week. A win against the falcons is always a good way to end the season, Go Chiefs!
