On April 17th the J. Frank White Academy Knights co-ed soccer team played Cumberland Gap, losing 8-0.

Although the Knights lost, they kept their sportsmanship up and played hard till the end. The team found it difficult to a adjust to new alignment which was made necessary because they were missing their leading scorer, Alan Luc. Luc had suffered serious sprain from a game before against Claiborne County. Starters for the game included Jacob Melton, Dekitta Williams, Shane Stevens, Chrissy Bradley, Katelin Chadwell, Erick Frittz, Nick Lockhart, Jaydon Hopkins, Samuel Rhodes, Daniel Gao, and Connor Snow.

Despite the lopsided score, the game was competitive, especially in the midfield. Daniel Gao, midfielder for JFWA took several shots on goal, and the Knights defense turned away numerous offensive plays by the home-standing Panthers.

After the game Senior Shane Stevens commented, “I think we did pretty well considering we were down our main player, Alan Luc. I believe we can work better on our communication skills. Our biggest strength is keeping up our defense and keeping the ball away from the goal.”
