The Lady Kings soccer team plays Homer on Thursday at 5:15 p.m. at Esther Shea Field. This will be the 3rd time Kayhi has faced off against Homer in the past two years (2-0) and is hoping to further that streak. Senior Jessilynn Sivertsen is excited to play Homer and is feeling confident that they can perform well before heading to Juneau.
“We have a good chance of beating Homer,” said Sivertsen. “The team has been improving and executing the past week. This game will warm us up for this weekend.”
The Lady Kings will be leaving Friday morning after the game to travel to Juneau where they will play both JD and Thunder Mountain. This will be the first game against Thunder Mountain this year and the second series against JD, Kayhi is 0-2 against JD.
Senior Captain Olivia Kinunen spoke on how the team has refined their skills since their last game against JD. “We have definitely grown as a team after seeing the way that we competed with JD at home,” said Kinunen. “So I’m hoping it helps our confidence when we compete in Juneau.”
Kinunen also talked about their chances of beating Thunder Mountain while in Juneau.
“We definitely have a better chance against Thunder Mountain, we are all excited to play them. When we play JD we play defense the whole game so we are looking forward to getting some action on offense going forward against Thunder Mountain.”
