Kickers thrown for a final loss

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:30PM

"The Kennedy High School girls’ soccer team took what might be called a hands-on approach to its 3-1 victory over Bainbridge Tuesday night in the opening round of the state playoffs.The game of soccer, by design, has little use for a player’s hands.
