The Boys Varsity soccer team took on Crystal Springs this past Saturday. The game got off to a good start with some good energy from the boys. In the 9th minute, Junior Lucas Sage sent in a beautiful free kick into the box that was headed past the keeper by Junior Zach Paszkeicz for an early 1-0 lead. The Knights kept on the pressure and played well the rest of the half keeping Crystal spring on their heels. With one minute left in the half Senior Zach Aguinaga had a throw in from the sideline which was headed towards the goal by Senior Dylan Glenn and deflected in for a 2-0 lead. The second half started off strong with a few early chances to score that narrowly missed. The score was still 2-0 with about 15 minutes to go when Crystal scored on a clumsy goal to get the score to 2-1. Then 4 minutes later, Crystal went on the counter attack after a goal kick and drove the entire field to score and tie the game up 2-2. Even with Crystal with the momentum, the boys didn't give up and kept fighting. They wanted this win badly. With 2 minutes left in the game, Senior Zach Aguinaga had another throw in  which was cleared to the top of the box. Senior Jack Kliewer came up from his defensive position and was in perfect position to put a good strike on the ball which flew past the keeper to give the Knights the lead again! The game would end 3-2 and the boys could now go and enjoy JSB that evening knowing they came away with a solid win.

The boys varsity Basketball team has had an amazing start to their league season under their new head Coach Nate Carroll. Starting off against Pinewood, the Knights took control of the game early and never gave it back. Solid guard play from Senior Malachi Mitchell and Sophomore Noah Short gave the Knights a big boost as they score 15 and 19 points respectively. The Knights defeated Pinewood 72-51. Next up was an away game at Sacred Heart Prep. The Knights historically have not had good fortune in their gym, but a quick 11-0 start in the 1st quarter gave our boys some early momentum. Sacred Heart slowly but surely battled back and actually took the lead by 1 point going into the 3rd quarter. Some big 3 pointers by Rustin McManis and Noah Short coupled with Matt Wilson grinding out some tough points in the paint ignited the second half. The 4th quarter was where the Knights poured it on outscoring Sacred Heart by 10 points. TKA won 57-45. TKA easily handled Crystal Springs 62-28 with a dominant performance. Another tough matchup over the years has been the Priory Panthers. Again, TKA played hard and with intensity against the Panthers and lead by 9 after 2 quarters. The third quarter was where the Knights really showed up. With a solid home crowd cheering them on, the defense stepped up and got stop after stop leading to a huge block by Mitchell. TKA outscored Priory 24-9 in the third quarter and never looked back. The final would be 61-44 which improved the team to 4-0 in the league.

The Knights next home game will be vs Pinewood on 1/25 @ 6:30 p.m.

Posted 01/16/2019 12:50PM

The Girls Basketball team took on the Mercy San Francisco Skippers in their first league match of the season. Mercy has been a dominant basketball program and TKA had never beaten Mercy in Varsity Basketball. The game opened up with Mercy on an offensive tear almost scoring at will. The Skippers strong forward and guard one-two punch proved to be a match-up problem for the Knights. After the first half, Mercy was up 26-14 and seemed too strong. The second half, however, was a completely different story. Defensively the Knights stepped up and some shots finally started to fall on offense. Senior Rebecca Philip was the spark that got the Knights going offensively hitting some huge 3-pointers. A new addition to the team, sophomore Kristin Barton also scored some big buckets and was efficient distributing the ball around the court. The Knights outscored the Skippers 19-5 in the 3rd quarter to give them a 2 point lead going into the 4th quarter. Mercy didn't go away though. They battled hard and gained the lead back by one point with about 1 minute to go, but then Senior Sarah French hit a huge shot to put the Knights back up be one. The lead would hold and the Knights would win 44-43! This huge win for the program will hopefully give them some momentum going into next week.

Their next home game is Tuesday, 1/22, @ 5:00 p.m. vs Crystal Springs.
