    On Thursday, Aug. 25, Rock Canyon supporters lined up at Shea Stadium for the first Boys Varsity soccer game vs Cherokee Trail. The game kicked off at 4:20pm.Within the first 15 minutes, Rock Canyon had scored off an own goal by a Cherokee Trail defender.

     The slick turf made the ball skip right past the keeper. Fouls were forged many times between teams and four yellow cards were shown; two for each team. Towards the end of the game when Rock Canyon seemed to be in control Cherokee Trail had a rifle of a shot rattle the post.

     It certainly gave a scare to the fans. Defense held up very nicely throughout the game blocking many attempts on goal. Rock Canyon held off the attacks and pulled away a win and great start to the season. The final score was 1-0.
