Game Recap

At U.S. Cellular Park the St. Mary’s girls took on the defending 4A state champion North Valley Knights. Neither team could break into the scoring column in the first half, but at the 46th minute mark of the second half, Maddie Wheelock received a pass from Ibixica Alvarez just outside the penalty box, broke through the Knights defensive line and finished with a shot into the far post netting. Seven minutes later, Baylee Touey equalized with a quick shot from 18 yards out with an assist by Brianna Robles. In the 64th minute, Touey earned her second goal after receiving a pass from Haley Kersten and breaking away up the center of goal and slipping in the game winner. St. Mary’s had a couple of good chances to score, but came up just short. The crusaders showed significant growth from the opening minutes of the match where most of the play was in their defensive third. In the next ten minutes of the half, play was in the middle of the field and from then on it was end to end. “I was very pleased with the determination of the girls to compete with North Valley and impressed with their progress during course of the match,” said Coach Potter. “I think they are finding their game.”

On Saturday, the girls open up their league season traveling to Lakeview. Match time is slated for 1:00.
