“We’re playing a private school that can recruit, and in the first half, they went up and down the field,” Corn said. “In the second half, we put it back at them a good bit. We played with some pride.

 

“It was a good learning experience. We really put in the effort in the second half and played much better.”

 

Polk County returns home Monday to face North Henderson in a non-conference match. Junior varsity play begins at 5 p.m., with the varsity to follow around 6:45 p.m. Both matches will be streamed live on NFHS Network.
