Girls soccer improves to 5-4-1
The Caledonia girls soccer team split a pair of games last week as their overall record moved to 5-4-1 with just two games left in the regular season.
Thursday night the Warriors hosted St. Charles for Parents Night and handed mom and dad a 3-0 win. Caledonia also honored seniors Hannah Felten, Haley Halverson, Krissy Kirchner, Rebecca Roble, Abby Wruck and Taylor Augedahl. Coach Tim Colleran said, “All the seniors played great during their last home game with Krissy Kirchner scoring one goal during the second half. Rebecca Roble, Abby Wruck and Taylor Augedahl fought hard on the outside mid with Rebecca having one shot on goal and Taylor two shots on goal. On defense, seniors Hannah Felten and Haley Halverson have been strong leaders throughout the year with both players having an excellent evening holding St. Charles scoreless in the game.”
Sophomore goalie Olivia Schmitz had three saves and a shutout, Ali Beardmore scored two goals and Tracy Felten had one assist.
On Tuesday the Warriors dropped a 3-1 decision to Cotter. The Ramblers scored their first goal on a penalty kick in the first half and added two more second-half goals. Trece Frank scored the Warriors only goal of the game as Caledonia managed 12 shots on goal. Olivia Schmitz had nine saves and Colleran said, “It was a hard fought game.”
Caledonia traveled to La Crescent Monday and Dover-Eyota Tuesday. Their final regular season game will be Thursday at P-E-M.
The section 1A tournament begins Oct. 8 and continues through the state tournament, which begins Oct. 23 and continues through Oct. 31.
