The Payson Lion Soccer Team had a good close match against Dixie on a recent Saturday afternoon, but the Flyers edged them out of the tourney with a 2-1 victory. The 2014 Lions had to settle for equaling the best finish for a Payson High Soccer Team after having defeated Morgan in the first round.
One of Payson’s outstanding players this year is Kyle Moffat, and among those watching the Lions against the Flyers Saturday were Kyle’s sister, Audrey (Moffat) Palmer, and her husband Jordan Palmer. Both were on national champion soccer teams at Iowa Western Community College this past fall and are getting ready to go back to the Midwest to pick up their championship rings.
Incidentally, Audrey was a star for Payson High School and Jordan was a star for Dixie High School before their college careers.
