The Knights definitely came to play on Friday and Saturday, April 8 & 9, 2016.
The eight-team Montgomery Catholic Rising Stars Soccer Tournament allowed every team to play three games on their way to qualification for the championship game late Saturday. The Knights made a great showing and earned their way to the big game.
Their first match, against Auburn at 5:30 PM Friday night, ended in a 3-3 tie. Goals were scored by Rhys Holifield, Judd Osten and Parker Hardegree.
On Saturday, they started tournament play with an 8:30 AM game against Montgomery Academy. The final was 1-1 with Rhys Holifield scoring on a PK.
After lunch, they went against Marbury at 1:30 PM and shut them out 8-0. Scoring for the Knights was Judd Osten (2), Chad Waite (2), Parker Hardegree (2) and Rhys Holifield (2).
The team’s performance qualified them for a championship matchup against Trinity where they lost 1-3 with Parker Hardegree scoring on a PK.
It was a great weekend of great play and great sportsmanship. All players, parents and friends should be proud.
Way to go Knights!
