Knights end their state soccer bid

Knights make run for the goal!

Gilbert Christian Knights had their post-season run cut short as they fell to ALA Queen Creek, Wednesday, February 12. The Knights got behind in the first half by 2 goals. That was the end of the scoring for ALA. Late in the second period, Junior Captain Brody Curtner found the net off a deflected header. The Knights would come at the defending Patriots many times but ultimately were unable to convert shots into goals. 

Zishim Bawa made his varsity debut with the Knights. His first game was against 2 of his brothers on the ALA team. Senior Captain Dominic Campos played having come back from an injury to lead the Knights defense as the keeper. 

The Knights have had their best season in what is looking like the development of a soccer machine at GCHS. Under the direction of Coach Devon Dickinson and staff, the Knights have a bright future on the pitch.
