in convincing fashion 7-0. Goals were by Garrett Slack (2), Jace
Mcintosh (2), Carter Robison, AJ Beard, and Jackson Van Fossan.
Payton Lanning and the defense held Eisenhower to 0 shots on goal.
the second game, we faced defending 1A state tournament runner up
Monmouth Roseville. Dean Harris got us on the board early with a 55
yard free kick that found the back of the net. Just a few minutes
later, Brandon D’Andrea was taken down in the box for a PK. After
that the team held strong and the midfield and defense kept Monmouth
under pressure. In the end we picked up the second shutout of the
