It’s down to the time of year where fall sports have ended, including Girls Soccer. All in all, the girls soccer season went pretty well. The girls have a lot to be proud of overall.

Winning 8-0 at Sequoyah at the end of the regular season was the highlight of the season out of the three games they won this year.  The girls are celebrating a season well played.

The team has made great improvements this season.  Looking back at Central’s girls soccer records going back to 2007, the team has never won more than 3 games. Additionally, the girls scored 24 goals in only 10 games played, which is the most to have been scored in a single season in that time, even in years that they played more games. To put it in perspective, that is more goals than the team had scored in the past 2 seasons combined. Those goals were scored by 6 different players, which is almost half of the roster.

“I wanted to score more this year and we scored 4 times as many goals as we did the previous year,” shared Coach John Brittingham about the main goal the team achieved this year.

The team’s main goal was to improve, and they most definitely met this goal. Only 2 players scored last year and we had 6 different scorers this year, so that was another goal achieved.

This year, the team will be loosing some valuable players, but the team certainly has some key pieces remaining to continue building a solid program throughout the next couple years.

“I think the season went very well, and we had some very talented people on our team that should keep playing soccer even after they graduate from Central,” shared Freshman Hannah Taylor.

Overall, girls soccer tried their absolute hardest during the season. They practiced every Monday through Thursday, unless they had a game on one of those days. They will most definitely go on striving to succeed in their next years to come.

“This season was better than last years although it didn’t go as we really hoped, but we had a good group of aggressive girls and we learned from each other as we finished up the season with a few good wins,” stated Senior Janetth Colunga.

If anyone knows somebody who played girls soccer this year, be sure to congratulate them on their season; their hard work sure did pay off.
