Last home series for 8 seniors

Eight Kayhi Kings (14-8, 4-2) will play their last home game ever against the Thunder Mountain Falcons (11-13, 4-2). The last time Kayhi had this many seniors, senior Kyle Smith was a freshman player on varsity.
“I didn’t think about the fact that it was all their last game much,” Smith said. “I was just a freshman, and I mean I was gonna miss them, but now that I’m in their shoes, I understand how upsetting it was.”
Kayhi is 5-1 in their last 6 home games against the Falcons, but the average margin of victory is only 6.5 points. Junior Kristian Pihl has been on the varsity team for 4 of their last 6 games at home.
“I just wanna keep the streak going,” Pihl said. “The fact that the No. 1 seed is on the line fuels me even more just to stomp Thunder Mountain.”
Senior night isn’t the only thing the Kings are focusing on this weekend. A sweep this weekend from the Kings seals the No. 1 seed at regions. Coach Eric Stockhausen understands its senior night, but realizes what they need to really focus on this weekend. “Big picture is that regions is 2 weeks away and we haven’t gotten the number one seed yet,” Stockhausen said. “We have a banquet at the end of the season where we can recognize the seniors, but this weekend all we need to focus on is winning.”
