Art thou the onion-eyed canker-blossom who forgot about Thursday morning’s reading club? It’s not too late. We’ll be staging the brawl, Act 1 Scene1 of Romeo and Juliet Thursday, September 25th, at 7:20 in the library.

King girls soccer kicked off the season with 2 exciting games against Lincoln. 

The 7th grade girls played with great heart and determination. Led by Awen Deng’s 2 goals, they battled to the end despite having only one sub. Final score Lincoln 4 King 2. Great work in goal by Malika Okot with strong support from Abby Dunnigan and Mekada Zabot-Hall.   Mid fielders Elsa DiGiovanni, Diana Aboda and Adian Ali also had strong games.

The 8th grade girls fell behind 2-0 then roared back with 2 late goals by Alessia Toohey to tie Lincoln. Malika Okot stepped up to sub in as an emergency goalie and was protected by Grace Cowie, Maisy Davis and the rest of the King defense. Emeline Avignon, Amanda Theale, and Annie Martin, supported Alessia on offense to provide King with many great scoring chances. Thanks to Emily Freedman for playing both games so that the 7th graders could sub out for a breather.

Next game today at Douglas field.
