LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - After leading Lincoln Southwest to a record-setting season, Braden Lackey and Eli Rhodes are getting one more game together on the pitch. The Silver Hawks duo will participate in the Nebraska Senior Soccer Showcase on Saturday at Omaha Skutt. The Boys Class A game is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

“I bet there’s a lot of seniors that didn’t make it that would do anything to try to play in this game,” Lackey said. “It means a lot to represent Southwest, too.”

Both players earned All-State honors this year after guiding the Silver Hawks to the Class A Final. LSW finished the season with a 17-1 record.

“The magnitude of not being able to put on another (LSW) jersey hasn’t hit me yet,” Rhodes said.

Lackey and Rhodes will play on the Soccer Internationale team at Saturday’s event. They will be joined by three players from Omaha South, who won the Class A championship in an epic match against the Silver Hawks.
