Finally, Evy Deaton, a senior at Silver Creek and passionate soccer fan and former Silver Creek women’s soccer player shared her insights into the team’s playing style.

“They do really well building out of the back and are good at connecting passes and driving towards the defense on a counter-attack,” she noted. This tactical prowess on the field is a testament to the team’s dedication and hard work.

Evy’s presence at Silver Creek games reflects her love for the sport. “I enjoy watching soccer and seeing the boys crush the other teams,” says Deaton. The electrifying energy both on the pitch and on the sidelines is a witness to the team’s appeal to fans like her.
