The Boardman Lady Spartans soccer team started its season with a win and made a lasting impression on future high school players. For the fifth season, the BHS Girls Soccer Boosters invited players from the Boardman Soccer Association to attend their match on Saturday, Aug. 17. The younger players were encouraged to warm up with the high school players and run onto the field with their high school counterparts during player introductions.
The Lady Spartans went on to win the match 6-0, as junior forward Alison Green tallied four goals and senior Nikki Hillard scored two.
Warming up with a run across the field are sophomore Payton Bryant, Chyanne Bryant, a second-grader at Market Street Elementary, senior Lindsey Tokarsky, Glenwood Middle seventh-grader Emma Tokarsky and freshman Alisa Earvin.
