The Falcon soccer team defeated Grain Valley 1-0 on Senior Night. A raucous Los Halcones Nation filled Van Horn with a standing room only crowd to cheer on the Falcon seniors. It was a special night as the packed crowd cheered on all eleven senior starters. The Falcons had the better of the chances on the night, playing against a rugged Grain Valley. The sophomore connection clicked in the 19th minute. Julio Rios side-volleyed a pass from the top of the box to a waiting Angel DeAvila who one-timed a low screamer into the left corner. That was all the scoring the Falcons would need, as the rearguard limited Grain Valley to a couple of set plays. Otherwise senior goalkeeper, Daniel Orozco, had a relatively easy evening against district 14’s top team. The Falcons face Winnetonka on Monday, 10/23, at 5:00. The district semifinal game will be played at Staley High School.
