The first-place boys soccer team has a home game tonight at 7:15 against the McKinney North Bulldogs (8-4, 2-2). The Bulldogs are sitting in third place in district, two games behind the Leopards (14-2-1, 4-0).

“We have already beat the two teams that they lost to, so we know that we are more than capable of defeating them,” senior Christian Kwon said. “In preseason, North was projected to be right there with us for first so it is important we beat them in the first half of district.”

The Leopards are currently sitting five points ahead of Mckinney North. Mckinney North’s two loses in district have come against Sherman (5-7-6, 2-2) and Wylie East (10-4, 3-1). The Leopards have defeated both Sherman and Wylie East once each already this season.

“Last game we beat Princeton,” senior captain Max Pabin said. “We could have played much better defense in that game.”

Last game, the Leopards defeated the Princeton Panthers (2-10-2, 1-3) by a score of 3-2. The game was set for Tuesday but wasn’t played until Wednesday due to unfavorable weather on Tuesday.

The first goal was scored by sophomore Cade Novicke, the second goal was scored by sophomore Michael Myers, and Pabin had the winning goal. The Leopards came back from 2-2 deficit to win.

“The rain delay did not affect our game much, it just gave us another day to mentally prepare for the Panthers,” senior Caleb Toomey said. “We could have played better, but we still came out with the win.”
