Hawks End 3rd Soccer Season in EMAC

We had another great season of soccer this year. This is our 3rd season in EMAC (Eastern Minnesota Athletic Conference), but our 1st season as a fully sponsored sport in the MSHSL. Our EMAC record was 3-6-0 and our overall record was 5-9-0. We had a very rough start to the season against Hmong Academy where we lost one of our forwards to a season-ending injury. We struggled to work together as a team during the first half of the season, but we finally started to “gel” during the second half. The last 6 games we ended up 3-3-0 and we started to play well “together” rather than a bunch of individuals. Our final game in the EMAC showcase tournament game was against Liberty Classical. It was a very exciting game ending in a tie after 2 OTs. Unfortunately, we lost in a shoot-out, but the boys played well right up to the very end. I think our team improved quite a bit since the beginning of the season, especially in areas of team work and passing. Looking forward to another great season next year.
