Fresh off a tournament championship in Forney last weekend, the boys soccer team (9-2) has a matchup tomorrow night against Denton Ryan (2-4-1)  at home at 7:15 p.m.

At Forney, the Leopards played a total of five games, winning four of them. Their only loss came against West Mesquite by a score of 1-0, who was an old district foe from last year before the realignment.

“Last weekend we got to play a lot of games at the Forney tournament,” senior captain Max Pabin said. “Taking home first place meant a lot because it helped us get a feel for what we want to achieve later in the season.”

The Leopards defeated Rockwall, Forney, Greenville, and Rowlett. In the 2-0 championship win against Rowlett, the first goal was scored by senior Haydn Spooner, assisted by Christian Kwon, and the second goal was scored by sophomore Cade Novike, assisted by Pabin.

“The Greenville game was really close, and it helped our team chemistry grow for that reason,” Kwon said. “Coming out on top showed that our team has good depth and can play together.”

Denton Ryan has had a below .500 start to the season. Similarly to the Leopards, Denton Ryan is a team featuring players with lots of experience under their belt.

“We don’t know a lot about Denton Ryan, but we know that they have good experience and pretty good depth,” senior Brock Yeager said. “It will be a good game to play in preparation for district.”

The Leopards’ district season opens up Feb. 8 against Wylie East (4-3). East is the only returning team from last year’s district.
