Though North will likely be favored in both rounds of the Clash, the NHS girls are in a similar spot as their Clash rivals. Last season they stabilized and improved and this season’s about coming back still better and taking the season deeper.
At a season-opening Arkansas tournament last weekend, the NHS girls fell to Bentonville (Ark) 3-0 before beating (Fayetteville) St. Mary’s 3-0 and (Tulsa) Booker T. Washington 4-2.
Of course, anything can happen.
Everybody’s probably capable of winning it all. That’s the way soccer’s been in this town for a long time. This season shouldn’t be any different.
