Soccer defeats JD

Kayhi boys soccer (5-9, 3-3) beat Juneau-Douglas for the first time in over a decade as part of a split with the Bears over the weekend.
Junior captain Brayden Linne said Friday’s 1-0 win was a huge accomplishment for the team.
“Going into every year we all know that the main goal is to beat Juneau,” said Linne. “So knowing that makes this win even more crazy.”
Even Kayhi soccer alumni know how big of an achievement this is for not only the team but the program as well.
Former Kings defender Brandon Corporon (2017) said that he was really happy for the team.
“It was honestly pretty awesome to hear the news,” said Corporon. “We have been waiting for this to happen for years now and this year’s team to finally do it makes me very proud.”
The one goal of the game was scored by junior Mark Jasper in the beginning of the second half of the game.
“Scoring the game winning goal against Juneau was definitely the highlight of my year,” said Jasper. “It was extra special because it was kind of the main goal of our season.”
Head coach Dave Mitchell said that he was very happy for the community and especially his players it was been their goal since they were little kids.
“The players get the credit for sure,” said Mitchell. “We have a very dedicated group of players. You really need 11 players to play well and work hard to hold Juneau to zero goals. We haven’t beaten them in that long and I don’t think we have held them to zero either so that was pretty impressive, so yeah. It’s a huge win.”
Kayhi lost 4-1 Saturday.
