Yesterday Everett’s varsity soccer team had their first district game against Rockford. Rockford scored in the first minute of the game, but Everett came back in the second half when Dadiri Mussa scored twice.

“Rockford came out strong and fast, but after about 15 minutes we were right there with them,” said junior Brett Howe

With the score at 2-1 with Everett in the lead and 1 minute left in the game, Rockford scored and the game went into overtime.

“After we started winning they started working really hard and we were defending really well. The goal that they made with a minute left was really weak, the ball rolled into the goal and it shouldn’t have happened,” said Howe

Rockford is supposedly the best team in the district.

“We were tired and they had at least 20 starting players and we only had 11,” said senior Juan Ramirez

The Viking accepted their loss, and decided to learn from it.

“It was a good game, we just made some stupid mistakes. Next year we’ll make sure not to make those same mistakes again,” said Howe.
