The season for the PHS Men’s varsity soccer team has been an amazing experience, with the team making history as undefeated district champs.
On Wednesday, February 24, the team played against Fox Tech, ending with a score of 4-1, and finished off the week with a 2-0 win against La Vernia on Friday, February 26. Their final home and district game, against the Poteet Aggies, ended with an amazing 7-0 score. Their final home game before the beginning of the playoffs was against Uvalde on Friday, March 5, with the end score being 4-2. Finishing off their district games, the Eagles traveled to Somerset on Tuesday, March 16, where they gained another winning score of 2-1.
Senior and captain of the team, Isom Smith explains, “I think it’s amazing to be a part of a team that has made so much history in the time that we have been here. I think as long as we continue to play as a team and give it our all, we can go as far as we want to go [in the playoffs].”
Another exciting thing for the team this year was having the PHS cheerleading and pacesetter teams cheer them on and show their support at their home games. An anonymous cheerleader explained that “it was very needed and the boys are deserving of the recognition and more.”
Their first playoff game will be against Palacios on Thursday, March 25. The team will travel to AC Jones High School in Beeville. All rules concerning Covid-19 are the same as those for PHS. Masks are required, social distancing is highly encouraged, and sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the stadium. Ticket prices are $5 for students and adults. Passes will be accepted at the gate.
Let’s fill the stands with green and show our boys some support. Good luck in the playoffs! Pride Pride!
