AVON — We have all come to expect the unexpected in 2020 but when Avon upset Medina 1-0 last week to win its first district championship since 2017, it was a shocker even to those who have grown accustomed to the new normal.

The Eagles (12-3-4) look to keep that momentum going tonight when they host Brunswick (13-2-3) in a Division I regional semifinal at 7 p.m. at Joe Firment Stadium.

“No one expected to come out with that win,” senior midfielder Ela Kisin said. “It’s always good to prove somebody wrong. We‘ve always thought you can beat any team if you show up and play your game. If we just keep playing how we’re playing, we can beat any team.”

Kisan, who returned to the high school field this fall after spending her sophomore and junior years exclusively playing club soccer, has six goals and 10 assists this year.

“This year’s team came together and we all had the goal of winning districts in mind. To achieve it is awesome,” Kisan said. “We all work together and we’re always there for each other. We leave it all out on the field.”

Eagles coach Attila Csiszar said it’s the play and leadership of four seniors — Kisin, Catie Geiger, Avery Rosso and Nyah Snezek — that put this year’s team over the top.
