Soccer - Varsity Girls
2013 Season Recap
The varsity soccer girls had a great season filled with growth. The girls went 9-8-1 overall. After starting the season with a 1-0 loss to Astoria, the girls got stronger by the game and rode a hot streak all the way to the state semi-finals losing to the eventual state champion Valley Catholic. The season included three very memorable games. Down 2-0 at Valley Catholic, the girls mounted a strong comeback to tie 2-2. After two great games with Westside Christian in which both teams won a game and lost a game 2-1, we were matched up with them in a winner take all for a state playoff birth. After an intense game full of chances, both ways CG pulled out a 1-0 win. In the state quarter-final against Western Mennonite after a scoreless game and OT the game went to penalty kicks. With the teams tied 4-4 after the five kicks, it went to sudden death kicks in which Catlin won 8-7 after nine rounds. The team played very hard all season and were full of young players who are excited to make an impact next season!
