Varsity: Mercy 1- Regina 1
JV: Mercy 3– Regina 1
Notes from Coach Diehl:
On the best day we have had for soccer by far (I did not say nice, but by comparison) the Marlins were ready to defend our home field. Regina is a very good team, and well organized by a great coach.
With the game at 0–0, Brooke was able to convert on a penalty kick. Later in the half Sophia converted on a great free kick from 30 yards out. However, the Saddelites were pressuring us with a lot of players up on top; great work to the tough defense of Sophia, Ainsley, and Livvy.
Mary played one of her smartest game and knew she had to drop back to join them. Defense was key. Allysa earned a first half shut outs with many saves. Maddy played keeper second half and face even more shots, but stood strong on the late siege of corner kicks. Brooke added a goal early in the second half.
The last 10 minutes the Regina team pressured us a lot and we gave up too many corners... Regina scored on a great kick from the corner to far post and one touched in.
