Eisenhower’s soccer team made history once this week but can they do it again?
For the first time in 20 years, Ike reached 10 wins in a single season, but now that they’ve reached that milestone, they’re focused on a bigger goal which is to become district champs.
To win district would be another milestone for Ike, but to do it they will have to do what seems like the impossible in defeating Nimitz.
Nimitz has been a powerhouse in AldineISD for soccer and Ike is currently 0-22 against them.
To even beat Nimitz would be a milestone for Ike’s soccer program.
However, though it seems like the ultimate challenge for Ike, it’s a challenge the team is embracing.
“Their main concern is they want to beat Nimitz,” Dan Bui, Ike’s soccer coach said about the team’s mindset. “That’s all they’ve been telling me since I got here is that they want to be the first class in a long time to beat Nimitz.”
Gametime between Ike and Nimitz is scheduled for 12noon on March 10, 2018.
The game will be played at W.W. Thorne Stadium.
