In its last home game of the season, the Manhattan High soccer team defeated Shawnee Heights 3-0, granting its seniors one last regular season win at home and senior goalkeeper Emmy Korenek her 10th clean sheet of the season.  

“It was sad knowing it was going to be one of the last games,” Korenek said. “I’m going to miss the team a lot because I’ve bonded so much with these girls and going to play on without them is going to be hard.”

Korenek is one of the three seniors on the team apart from senior defenders Karmen Martinie and Molly Smith.

“Senior Night to me was a time to soak in and enjoy being with my teammates and playing with them before getting busy with the postseason,” Smith said. “I felt honored to be able to play with a great team and coach because I know I am really going to miss them next year.”

Manhattan’s next game will now be in the postseason.

“Our expectations for postseason is the same as during the regular season,” Smith said. “We expect everyone to play their best and help everyone achieve the team’s goal of making it to and winning state.”

If the Indians will repeat as regional champions, or achieve last year’s feat of placing third at state is still to be seen.

“Intensity has to be there and 100 percent effort always,” Korenek said. “Whether we are down or winning we need to play with all we have the whole time.”

Manhattan finished the season at 12-3.
