Perry boys, Kinnick girls strikers earn national team honors

Matthew C. Perry’s boys and Nile C. Kinnick’s girls soccer teams have received the silver version of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America’s High School Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award, according to a NSCAA news release.

The reigning four-time Far East Division II Tournament champion Samurai and last year’s Division I runner-up Red Devils earned the awards based on having no players sent off (red cards) and five cautions (yellow cards) or fewer during the course of the 2015 season, the release said.

They were two of 19 schools nationwide accorded the silver award. Five were given the gold award for accumulating no cards during the season and two teams got the bronze award for having 10 cards or fewer over the season.
