  • Girls JV Soccer Suffers Loss

    Coach Fales
    The Raiders played another tough opponent in Westminster Christian and fell 4-1 to the Warriors.  Our team worked hard to counter their changing formation and the first portion of the game was played in our half.  The Raider defense dealt with all offensive threats including some good saves from Dani Ortiz. Until the 15th minute, when Westminster scored after our defense failed to clear a ball in our penalty area.

    Down 1-0 at halftime, the coaches moved some players into new positions and emphasized  patient team defense then connecting passes to create offense. Unfortunately, the Warriors scored first in the second half.  The Raiders continued to work hard and scored next when Madison Munroe took the ball away from a defender, dribbled in on goal, and passed it in with her left foot.  Coming out of the second half water break down 2-1 but with momentum from our goal. The Raiders kept the pressure up playing in their half for 5-8 minutes. Unfortunately, we  didn’t equalize.. The Warriors regrouped and the game shifted to our end. The Warriors scored twice as our defense become more aggressive and offensive minded.

    Lilly Kaplan and Dani Ortiz were named MVPs.  We play Westminster again after winter vacation on January 16, 2019.

  • Lady Raiders Lose

    Coach Fales
    The girls JV soccer team played an excellent Carrollton team on Wednesday and lost 9-1.  On this day it was the opponent that got off to the strong start and the team struggled to recover.  The girls found out just how good the Cyclones were when they scored their first goal 2 minutes into the game.  At the first water break the score was 4-0 in Carrollton’s favor. The coaches changed formation, the girls chased a little less and became more patient.  Pressing high up the field Ellie Dyke created a turnover. Madison Munroe won the ball, dribbled past a defender then shot the ball low. The goalkeeper partially saved the shot, and Munroe finished with her left foot for the only RE goal.  The team trailed 6-1 at halftime.

    The coaches reviewed the new formation and discussed how to deal with such a strong opponent.  At times the team’s patience paid off with turnovers, however the girls couldn’t muster much offense or possession. Carrollton scored three more times in the second half to end the game. Georgia Crosby and Neely Amdur were selected MVP.

    Our next game is Wednesday, Dec 12 away at Westminster Christian School.

  • Raiders Win Their Third Game

    Emerson Fales
    Last Wednesday, the team defeated the Palmer Trinity Falcons 6-0.  The girls worked their way into the game more slowly due to a short  warm-up and the coldest temperatures of the season so far. Once again the midfield was able to get the ball into space behind the opponent’s back line allowing the forwards and outside midfielders to carry the ball on goal.  A half dozen chances were created this way and the team converted 3 with goals from Ellie Dyke-1 and Madison Munroe-2 off assists from Bri Suarez and Bianca Perez. The girls were feeling confident at halftime with a 3-0 lead.

    Warmed up and ready to go, the team started the second half quickly with a goal by Grace Arriola after she won a ball at the top of their penalty area, dribbled in on goal and scored along the ground.  Our next two goals came from winning free kicks and dribbling in on their goalie. Lily Kaplan scored on a first time shot off a Dani Pineros cross on the ground. Next Bri Suarez collected the ball from a goal kick, dribbled past a defender and shot.  The rebound went to Lilly Kaplan who played it back to Suarez who shot the ball high into the net from close range.

    Lily Kaplan, Madison Munroe and Bri Suarez notched 2 point games.  Grace Arriola and Julia Paula were named co- MVPs. Our next game is Wednesday, December 5, 4pm at home against Carrollton.  We look forward to playing well against a strong opponent.

  • Raiders Suffer First Loss

    Coach Fales
    On Saturday the JV girls soccer team lost for the first time this season, 2-1 to Immaculata LaSalle High School.  As the score indicates the teams were evenly matched with just a little difference in focus and execution.  The Raiders had high hopes of continuing their winning streak with a quick start, taking the first two shots of the game.  Then LaSalle settled down and started controlling the ball in our half of the field.   They put pressure on our defense and midfield, but the girls held the game even until the first water break.  LaSalle got around the left side of our defense and scored on a very good shot.  The Raiders collected themselves and tried to even the score, but eight minutes later LaSalle worked the ball through the center of the defense and scored again for a 2-0 at halftime.

    After a lively discussion, we switched some players' positions which worked well.  We were able to put pressure on their defense with long runs into their penalty area.  The girls really put their goalkeeper to the test, and sure enough she left a rebound that Jamie Sanford knocked home.  The intensity of the game really picked up after we scored.  As often happens the trailing team has to take chances and press forward. Fortunately, the defense and in particular goalkeeper Dani Zebede were up to the task.  She made numerous saves throughout the second half keeping her team one goal behind.  Unfortunately, LaSalle was able to stop all of our efforts and won the game.  As a result of the strong second half play, Dani Pineros and Zebede were name co-MVPs for the game.

    Our next game is Nov. 28 at Palmer Trinity.  Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Girls JV Wins Again

    Coach Fales
    The team won their second game of the season, 3-2 over Gulliver.  The girls got off to another strong start with a goal by Madison Munroe on our first trip down the field in the second minute.  Then Bri Suarez scored in the seventh minute after Julia Paula stole the ball near midfield and dribbled past three defenders.  The team kept up the pressure by working the wings again and playing mostly in Gulliver's half of the field. The third goal came after the water break when Ellie Dyke scored her second of the season.  The team went into half-time with a 3-0 lead.

    The second half started much differently than the first when we gave up a penalty kick goal within the first five minutes.  The girls settled in and started putting pressure on their defenise and forcing saves from the Gulliver goalkeeper. Unfortunately, it was Gulliver who got the next goal and a 3-2 scoreline setting up a very lively last 8 minutes. The Lady Raiders held strong and did not allow another scoring chance securing our first JV win against Gulliver in 8 years! Congratulations to all the girls who worked really hard on a humid south Florida night. Special congratulations goes to game MVP Maya Sanchez.

    Thanks again to the fans for coming out and supporting the team, especially since kickoff was delayed 35 minutes. Our next game is Saturday the 17th on our home field. Kickoff is 1pm.
