New Year, Same Trophy

This past Wednesday the boys varsity soccer team won against their rival, the Cy Falls Eagles. In doing so they were able to keep the David Hughes trophy which has been passed between these two schools for multiple years. Langham has had it for the last three years.

David Hughes, previous principal at Langham Creek, used to be the head soccer coach at Cy Falls. This dispute caused this competition level to increase tremendously. The team maintained their hold on the David Hughes Trophy, defeating Cy Falls in a nail-biting match-up that kept fans on the edge of their seats until the very end.

Senior Felipe Cardozo spoke about the team’s early struggles this season.

 “The season had a rough start, but now we are progressing on the way to win district,” Cardozo said.

Despite these challenges, the Lobos persevered, and their hard work paid off in the last game against Cy Falls.

“The last game was eventful but very nerve-racking,” senior and captain Ayden Finley said. “We were able to keep our momentum and win.”

Maintaining the David Hughes Trophy for three years has been a point of pride for the team.

 “It feels great to keep that legacy and even pass it on to the underclassmen,” Finley said. “I remember being an underclassman and not understanding the importance of the award, but playing for it made me realize the importance of it.”

Finley’s leadership and commitment to the team have been a driving force behind the Lobos’ success.

“As captain, I could always get better, but we all have been getting better,” Finley said. “I hope we keep the trophy here at Langham for many years to come.”
