The boys soccer team (16-4-1 overall, 6-2 in district play) has a home district game against Princeton (2-13-2, 1-6) at 7:15 Friday for senior night. This is the second-to-last district game for the Leopards.

“Princeton is in the lower half of the district rankings,” senior captain Max Pabin said. “We need to make sure we don’t drop a game like this if we want to still have the chance to win district.”

Princeton is currently next-to-last in the district, but a win Friday keeps the playoff hopes alive for the Panthers.

The Leopards beat Sherman (7-9-6, 4-4) 1-0 on Wednesday.

“Last game was pretty good,” senior Brock Yeager said. “It was my first game back and everything went really well for the team overall. It was a decent win.”

The game had to be pushed back a night due to the below-freezing temperatures. This, only allows the Leopards a one-day break before playing their next game.

“The delay on the first game this week will not really affect us much,” senior Caleb Toomey said. “It is just a matter of everyone making sure they stay healthy and are ready to go for Friday night.”

With the district season winding down, the playoff-bound Leopards hold onto hopes of a third straight district champion. In order to do so, they’ll need to win out and McKinney North will need to lose its final two games.
