  • Team Finishes with Big Win! Secures .500 record

    Emerson Fales
    The girls JV soccer team wrapped up their season with a dominant win over the St. Brendans Sabres, 8-0.  The game started out back and forth then the Raiders settled in as they realized they would have time on the ball.  Next the team started to link passes together, working the wings to get the ball into their penalty area.  The first goal came when Bri Suarez converted a penalty kick created by our strong pressure in front of their goal.  The next goal was scored on a well played break down the right wing by Madison Munroe assisted by Bri Suarez.  Bianca Perez and Ellie Dyke scored unassisted goals after the team created turnovers deep in Sabre territory later in the first half to make the score 4-0 Raiders at halftime.

    The team continued with their strong play keeping the ball in St. Brendans' end to begin the second half.  The good work paid off when  the Sabres scored an own goal 10 minutes into the half.  Next Madison Munroe scored her second of the day on a nice shot from the left side of goal after Bianca Perez found her with a pass.  The Raiders' 7th goal was scored by Ellie Dyke, also her second, after she dealt with some defenders at the top of the box.  Bianca Perez then scored her second of day after getting fouled right outside the penalty area and converting the free kick off the goalkeepers hand.

    This was the best offensive game of our season with three players scoring 2 goals:  Ellie Dyke, Madison Munroe and Bianca Perez.   Perez also got an assist for a 3 point game a first for the season.  Bri Suarez had herself a 2 point game with a goal and an assist.  It was a great way to end the season and secure a 4-4 record.  A nice reward after struggling with some better opponents recently.  The girls work all season showed itself on game days with improvement both individually and as a team.

    The coaches enjoyed working with the girls, watching them grow as soccer players and teammates.  Good luck to everyone this spring on and off the field.

  • Girls JV Falls to Westminster in First Game Back

    Emerson Fales
    The Lady Raiders faced Westminster Christian School for the second time on Wednesday and suffered a second loss 4 to 1.  The team was facing a tough task after losing the first game and having three freshman on Outward Bound.  The girls fought hard in a physical contest that saw three girls not able to finish the game.  The defense had  its hands full in the first half as most of the play was in our defensive third of the field.  Goalkeeper Dani Ortiz played extremely well challenging shooters, making many saves.  Unfortunately two shots got by, the second on a fine long shot from the corner of our penalty box.  The Raiders went into halftime down 2-0.

    The second half began much the same way with the Warriors putting the Raiders under pressure from the midfield.  The Warriors broke through for a third goal with a fine through ball.  Then the team settled down getting the ball to our attacking midfield at the feet of Biance Perez.  She was able to play balls into wide areas and the wingers made a few nice runs down into their penalty area.  The strong spell was highlighted by one play were the team linked four passes starting with a free kick 35 yards from our goal that sprung Ellie Dyke behind their defense.  She was fouled in their penalty box.  Then converted the penalty kick when she put in the rebound after the goalkeeper saved the initial shot.  The Raiders kept pushing hoping for a second goal, but the Warriors adjusted to the pressure by involving their outside backs more on offense.  Their fourth and final goal came off just such a push down right wing with another impressive long shot.

    For their strong play Ellie Dyke and Bianca Perez were named co-MVPs for the game.  The girls wrap up their season on Saturday 11am at the middle school against St. Brendans.  We look forward finishing the season with a strong effort.

  • 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 as 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. Then in the 15th minute 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.  The team came 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 co-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 co-MVPs.

    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 goalkeeper. Lily Kaplan scored on a first time shot off a Dani Pineros cross along 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, and she 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.
