Coming off a big win August 11, the girls were excited for another well-fought match on Thursday, August 16th. The girls came out with strength and determination and pulled out a 5-0 win against Huron. With 38 shots throughout the match, the girls were confident in their playing abilities and were creating opportunities with great passing and teamwork. Riley Altman, junior, scored two goals, including one penalty kick; Paige Sterud, freshman, added one goal to the mix; Jordyn Williams, 7th grader, had another great goal inside the box; and Jayden Clark, junior, had goal from the defensive line.
After the game Thursday against Huron, the girls were ready to play Tea on Saturday, August 18th, though they knew it would be a hard-fought battle. Though the girls played aggressively and fought hard, they couldn’t seem to get any breaks. Kayla Genzlinger, freshman, had a phenomenal game in goal. Without her hard work, the outcome of the game would have been much worse. As it is, the girl lost the battle 0-9 against Tea. The proudest moment as a coach was to see every girl put forth 110% effort throughout the entire game. No one gave up, and no one started blaming other people. The team (2-2-0) as a whole took the loss well and is gearing up for our game against Sioux Falls Christian on Tuesday, August 21st and Dakota Valley on Saturday, August 25th.
