After prevailing in an epic shootout last Thursday in its playoff opener, the boys soccer team (18-5-1 overall, 7-3 district) will play Adamson (14-4-3, 9-1) tonight at 7:30 in the second round of the state playoffs. The game will be played in Mesquite.

“Adamson is pretty solid, and we know what they are capable of and just have to stick to what we know and play our game,” senior Christian Kwon said.

Adamson beat Creekview (8-11-4, 4-6-4) in the first round. Neither team scored a goal in regulation or overtime. Adamson won 7-4 with all goals coming in the shootout.

“Creekview was in the lower part of their district,” senior captain Max Pabin said. “I think that Frisco was a much tougher first round matchup.”

The Leopards are coming off a first round victory over Frisco (14-5-3, 13-3-2). The score was 2-2 at the end of regulation. Neither team scored in overtime and the game went to a shootout. The shootout stayed even the whole way until Kwon made the last goal for the Leopards to claim the win, 10-9.

“After I scored the last goal, I felt really good,” Kwon said. “Our fan base was really excited and it felt good to silence the Frisco fans because there were a lot of students going crazy for them the whole time.

If the Leopards win tonight, they will play the winner of Frisco Heritage vs. Adams on Friday.
