Friday night was senior night and last home game of the 2017 season. The game was a back and forth battle in the first half with neither team finding the back of the net. Two minutes into the second half, Mackenzee Smith scored for Hoover off the assist from Jordan Henderson. Twelve minutes later, HHS went up 2-0 off a header goal from AK Gonzalez on a corner kick by Kyla Shaw. A strong Buc defense and GK, Elena Register, record another shutout on the year. The game ended 2-0 and sends Hoover to the playoffs.
Five seniors were recognized and honored after the game: Jordan Henderson, Hayley Paulmeno, Jilian Joyner, Emily Michell and AK Gonzalez.
