Kingwood Park is eyeing another deep run in the playoffs as they begin on Thursday.
Prior to last season, which was halted due to COVID-19, Kingwood Park girls soccer had made the UIL State Tournament for two-straight seasons and was seeking a third-straight trip to Georgetown.
In 2021, Kingwood Park is once again dominated District 20-5A play. The Lady Panthers went a perfect 14-0 and outscored opponents by 57 goals. Emma Yeager broke the single-season record for goals netting her 41st a few weeks ago.
VYPE traveled out to Kingwood Park a few weeks ago to talk to the Lady Panthers on preparing for another deep playoff run in 2021.
Emma Yeager is a force to be reckoned with.
In the soccer world she is well-known and what she brings to the pitch for Kingwood Park. Only a sophomore, but Yeager may be already one of the most feared scorers in the city.
Last year as a freshman she netted an amazing 36 goals and that was with a few more regular-season matches remaining before the COVID-19 pandemic brought everything to a screeching halt. If the regular season would have finished, Yeager had a legitimate chance to break the Kingwood Park regular-season mark for goals scored, which is 40 set by Vanessa Valadez in 2013.
This season, Yeager, for the 10-1-3 Panthers, has already netted 14 goals giving her 50 for her career.
