Boys playoff aspirations ended


The threat of tornadoes prolonged the Kaufman Lions boys soccer season by 24 hours, but the Leopards still took a 3-0 victory a day later than originally scheduled.

Scoreless after regulation play, the overtime period began with a quick goal by senior Michael Meyers, and was followed by goals from junior Chris Lofton and senior Pablo Runco.

With the win the team advanced to the sectional round to take on Thomas Jefferson Friday night at 8:00 p.m. at Kinciade Stadium in South Dallas. Thomas Jefferson beat Mesquite Poteet in a shootout to advance to the game, however extra time was unneeded in their next game.

A late-game comeback and goal within the final minutes was not enough for the Leopards to force overtime against Thomas Jefferson, as the Patriots final goal pushed them ahead for the win, 3-2. The loss ended the Leopards season and title aspirations, finishing the season 16-8-2.

In 4th grade, she progressed to mapping out the rest of her life; she decided to travel to every single country in the world for a year after college, become a spy for the President, take a bullet in the leg for the President which would led to her subsequent two-term election, and become a college professor until she dies.
