K-Park undefeated in district after picking up 200th win in program history
Kingwood Park remained undefeated in district last week after picking up two shutout victories agaisnt New Caney and Porter.
Senior midfielder Allie Byrd scored two goals, which were assisted by Taylor DeBrosky as the the Lady Panthers defeated Porter 2-0 on Friday night.
The victory was K-Park’s 200th program win in school history.
The Lady Panthers have been dominating all season, compiling a 19-1-1 overall record and have an 13-0-1 record in District 20-5A.
K-Park started out district play with five-straight shutout wins and have a total of nine shutouts through 14 district games so far, this season.
The Lady Panthers have outscored their opponents 58-5 in district play.
Byrd leads K-Park in goals with 19 and has seven assists.
Taylor DeBroksy leads the team in assists with 15 and has kicked the ball into the back of the net twice.
Leah Hoyt has 12 goals with six assists and Bella Salazar has 10 goals with nine assists for the K-Park.
Head coach Jess White has seen the Lady Panthers chemistry develop throughout district play.
“There are moments where everything is clicking and then there are moments where we have play a little better attention to the details off the ball,” White said. “We have to stay focused on defense. The effort level is there, but we have to pay attention to those details so that we aren’t missing out on opportunities.”
K-Park hasn’t given much to opposing offenses during the season. The Lady Panthers haven’t allowed more than one goal in a match in the entire season.
Goal keepers Libby Overmyer, Samantha Valadez and AJ Weeks have protected the net for the Lady Panthers to give the offense a chance to score.
“We’re blessed to have three goal keepers that are very good,” White said. “None of them have allowed two goals the entire season in a game or one per game in district.”
K-Park clinched a playoff spot already after defeating Lake Creek.
The Lady Panthers have two games left in district until the playoffs start.
K-Park will take off spring break, but will have its last home game of the season as the Lady Panthers take on Willis in a district match for senior night at 7:30 p.m. March 20.
“I would like to see some clean sheets out there,” White said. “I want to see shutouts, and I want to see us honor these seniors for all of their hard work. This also prepares us because we’re going to someone else’s place and that is what the playoffs is like. We just need to continue to stay focused and do what we have been doing all season.”
