LVS coming off a solid week
Back to district play
The Nolan Catholic Women's Soccer teams went 2-0 last week with 2 impressive wins over HSAA (JV) and Twin City Fire Academy out of Minnesota (Varsity).
Both teams had to brave the rain and the cold in route to victories. The JV hosted HSAA for their home opener and rattled off a 2 goal lead at the half with goals by Emma Mueller and Elena Ramirez.
"Our team made a statement at our first home game, playing with a vision toward a competitive season with a 3-0 shutout," mentioned JV head coach, Edward Hernandez.
Lilly Martinez scored the second goal of the year to extend the lead to 3 in the 50th minute. Gigi Del Signore and a solid back line combined for the shutout improving their record to 1-1-1.
With the Friday varsity match cancelled, the group was able to pick up a game against Twin City Fire Academy out of Minnesota over the weekend. The cold, wet weather wasn't an issue for the Fire but the Lady Vikings were, as Nolan Catholic played the most complete match of the season this far improving to 3-2-1 with a 4-0 shutout of their own. Underclassmen, Abby Geiser, Laci Earixson, Maggie Tepera, and Avery Hutka each scored in the match with freshman, GK, Alle Steining pitching the shutout.
Head Coach, Jay Fitzgerald said, "First off, we were fortunate to get a game in with Fridays match getting cancelled but the way we handled the weather and the way we executed our game plan was impressive. We were solid in all functions of the game."
With the JV off until the return from break to prepare for the GCISD Invitational, opening with UIL 6A powerhouse Byron Nelson, the varsity plays 2 district matches tonight and tomorrow before heading off the California to compete in the Tri-Valley Classic in San Francisco.
Kick-off at All Saints is tonight at 5pm with Wednesday nights match vs Liberty Christian starting at 6:00pm.
