Brenna and Blair Boies are sisters who do a lot together.
Whether it be hanging out, helping each other out, or kicking the ball around on the soccer field, the sisters are close. Both are former soccer standouts at Edison High who are now playing college ball. Both play outside midfield and even though they are playing at separate schools, they remain in the same state. They even wear the same jersey number: seven.
For one of the two, that number will prove lucky come Saturday.
For all that the two have gone through together, one thing they haven't done to date is faced off against each other. At 4 p.m. Saturday, that will change when Brenna's Northern Arizona University team faces Blair's Embry Aeronautical University in a nonleague soccer scrimmage, the first match of the season for both schools.
The first-time meeting that pits the siblings against each other is so big, Blair Boies said, that "our whole family will be there."
