Turf Fest

It was a beautiful October night and Kirkwood unveiled it's breathtaking new turf field as the Pioneers took on a battle-tested Parkway Central squad.  It was an action packed afternoon, starting with Field Hockey's Senior Day (a 3-0 win over Parkway West), leading into Turf-Fest in the Gym, and culminating with a hard fought football game.  

A high school football home-opener is always exciting, but even more so when it's been pushed back several weeks and you're rolling out the red carpet (in this case, the green carpet).  The band was rockin', as ususal, the cheerleaders got the crowd excited, and the pommies broke out the sparkles.  The Pioneers battled all night long, but a few timely turnovers deep in their own territory sealed their fate, and they fell to the Colts 17 - 10.  

Coach Irvin will use this week to help the squad bounce back as they prepare to take on University City in home game #2.  If you haven't had a chance to see the team or the beautiful new field, make plans to head out Friday night and see what has the whole community of Kirkwood so excited.
