The High School Soccer Season is less than two months away with Bluegrass Games at the end of July, however many Brossart players are doing well with their Select Soccer Teams.
Graduate, Eli Nienaber's NKSA U-18 Team played in the State Open Cup Championships in Bowling Green. Eli, in the final game of the round robin play had an assist in the 90th minute to tie the game at 1-1 and then in added time scored the game winning goal with only seconds left to end a thrilling weekend for him.
