Soccer teams face Kennedy in gold out for childhood cancer

Gabby Skopec and Sarah Longmire

On Thursday night, the boys and girls soccer teams took the field against Cedar Rapids Kennedy in a doubleheader. The game was a gold-out in support of West High School Dance Marathon. A bake sale was also held where proceeds went to Dance Marathon.

The girls took the field first. At halftime the score remained 0-0. Then, at the 33 and 31 minutes left marks in the second half, Kennedy scored twice, giving them a 2-0 advantage. Those were the only two scores of the game, and Kennedy defeated West 2-0. The team fell to a 3-3 record.

The boys game went off at 7 p.m. and West got off to a very fast start, scoring three goals before the first ten minutes had past. The team scored again before halftime and led 4-0 at the half. After halftime, they scored once more with 21 minutes left in the game. The five goals were the only scores of the game as West shut out Kennedy 5-0. The team advanced their record to 6-0 this season.
