Girls soccer drops final three

The Caledonia/Houston/Spring Grove girls soccer team ended the regular season on a down note after they dropped the last three games to finish with a 5-7-1 overall record and 4-3-1 in the conference.

On Monday the Warriors lost 2-0 at La Crescent. On Tuesday Caledonia took on Dover-Eyota at D-E with the conference title on the line and dropped a 2-1 overtime decision to the Eagles. On Thursday the Warriors lost 4-1 to Plainview.

Against La Crescent goalie Olivia Schmitz had 14 saves, and the offense had six shots on goal with Ali Beardmore getting two. Trece Frank also had two with Samantha Colleran and Tressa King each getting one shot on goal.

Caledonia’s defense, including Hannah Felten, Haley Halverson and Sydney Halverson, Ella Pieper, Kelsey Hermanson and Tressa King, played an outstanding game holding La Crescent to two goals, coach Tim Colleran said.

On Tuesday at Dover Eyota the Warriors took on the Eagles. “This game was just like the first game into double overtime with Caledonia winning first game 2 to 1 and Dover Eyota winning second game 2 to 1,” Colleran said. Caledonia got on the board when Tracy Felten put the ball in the net with Trece Frank getting the assist. During the second half Dover-Eyota’s Abigail Ramirez tied the game at 1 to 1 and sent it into overtime. In the first overtime neither team scored, and in the second overtime Dover-Eyota was awarded a penalty kick and scored with a minute left on the clock to win the conference championship. Olivia Schmitz had 11 saves, and Caledonia had nine shots on goal.

Thursday at Plainview the Warriors lost 4-1. Goalie Olivia Schmitz had eight saves. Ali Beadmore had one goal and seven shots on goal. Trece Frank had two shots on goal, and Tracy Felten and Haley Halverson each had one shot on goal.

“Brenna Werner and Alison Goergen played strong throughout the week at the outside midfield position. I am proud of how hard they worked all season and how they came together as a team,” Colleran said.
