The Garretson Blue Dragons traveled to Groton on Saturday, September 19 to take on Tigers on the soccer field. Earlier this season, the Lady Blue Dragons tied with the Tigers. This time around, Garretson struggled to find their groove and the back of the net, losing 5-0.
Tuesday, September 22nd, the Blue Dragons hit the road to Dakota Valley. “We were focused and ready to bounce back from Saturday’s disappointing loss,” Coach Amber Williamson said. “The girls came out fired up, possessing the ball, and aggressive.” Garretson fell to Dakota Valley 1-2.
Garretson found themselves down 1-0 at half against the Panthers. Dakota Valley found the net on an indirect kick outside the 18-yard box at the start of the second half. “We fought back, and narrowed the lead to 2-1 after Morgan Damman scored on an assist by Joely Sterud,” Coach Williamson added.
Sterud had five shots on goal. Raegen Altman, Damman, Paige Sterud and Jenna VanHolland each had two shots on goal. Miriam Pickard, as a defender, also added a shot on goal. In goal, Kayla Genzlinger had 14 saves.
