What's Going on with Parker Soccer
On Thursday, January 20th, Parker’s varsity soccer team recorded their first high school win in over seven years. The debut season for this generation of Parker athletes has been both a challenge and great opportunity. To field a team was itself a massive milestone, and subsequent practices, tactical sessions from Coach Polhemus, clinics with college players, and a deep passion to improve have carried what was once just an idea into a team that is now competing with schools that have had soccer programs forever. The win, a 6-1 victory over Konawaena, came in the heart of a drenching Kealakekua downpour. With jerseys sticking like rash guards, two goals apiece from Skye Raymond, Everett Gordon, and Fatu Fuga helped the Bulls charge their way to an emphatic win.
Moving into the second half of the season, the Bulls play three critical home matches against Keaau (Feb 2), Honoka’a (Feb 4), and Christian Liberty (Feb 10). Wins in all of these games would put Parker in a solid position to advance to States on Oahu, but no matter the outcomes there are sure to be some exciting results from these coming fixtures.
Other Information: BIIF just finished re-evaluating the possibility of having spectators (which have been very limited) at games. We are so excited to welcome fans back to our games to provide atmosphere, enthusiasm, and a greater sense of community and normality.
