Girls’ soccer heads into regional match-up with Jasper Wednesday after big sectional win

By Luke Geraghty

Coming fresh off their fifth sectional title in six seasons, the FC varsity girls’ soccer team heads into a regional game against Evansville Memorial Wednesday with confidence after finishing the regular season with three straight losses. Despite that streak, senior Cassie Holland said they aren’t surprised to be here.

FC beat Jasper 2-1 in the sectional title game Saturday night. The team found itself down 1-0 in the game against Jasper.

“They scored first, but we didn’t let it get to us,” senior Kelsey Moburg said.

The team would erase the 1-0 deficit after senior Lauren Haley and sophomore Ellie Stewart each scored goals for the team. Head coach Lewie Stevens was impressed with the team’s come-from-behind win.

“We possessed the ball well and our defense was good both individually and as a team,” Stevens said.

Heading into Wednesday’s regional match-up, Holland said the coaches have been a real help in getting the team this far.

“They have helped us make our formation fit the personality of the team,” Holland said.

Evansville Memorial presents itself as a tough challenge for FC. The Lady Tigers come into the match with an unbeaten record on the season. Stevens talked about what the team needs to do in order to try and get the upset win.

“We need to move the ball quickly and at a good pace, but still under control,” he said.

The match is scheduled for Wednesday at Jasper at 5 p.m.
