Bittersweet ending for girls’ soccer

Although 101 goals hit the back of the net for the Lady Wildcats this season, their loss to Bishop Moore in the soccer regional quarterfinals put an end to their 21-game season. The girls won 15 games, lost three and tied three. Throughout the season, 25 goals were scored against the team.

Junior starter Amanda Farthing said although they did not make it farther than they did last year, it was a more successful year.

“Our team definitely proved our talent this year,” Farthing said, “Everyone stepped it up, especially Erin [Berube] and Ciera [Misner] in the defense.”

Assistant Coach Chuck Keener had positive things to say about the season.

“There was a lot of balance on the team,” Keener said. “We were strong defensively and very potent offensively. It also helped that two of the three top scorers in the county were on our team, which is unusual.”

Keener went on to say that Berube and Misner were particularly good in the defense for the team. Senior and captain Kaitlyn Forry said  she wished the team would have gone farther into regionals. Forry scored 33 goals this season, earning her title as the top goal scorer in the county.

“Losing that early in the playoffs is frustrating,” Forry said. “But I couldn’t have asked for a better season.”
