After winning there last 4 games of the season by shutout, thanks to suberb goalie Emily Kirby, they moved on to sections againts Minneapolis Edison. The game was played at Columbia Heights High School, my wife's alma matter, so she was excited to go back. Our girls dominated the game from start to finish, winning 8-0. Courtney Thompson and Jenny Friday, both defenders most of the year, scored their first goals of the season. This was after our forwards had put in several goals already. Time for Park Center, who ended our year last year.
Park Center came out strong but Legacy held off many charges in the first half. We appeared to have taken the lead on a free kick from Jenny Friday, who found Callie Ryan past the defense and put iit in the net. The line judge felt she was offsides and disallowed the goal. Shortly after that an errant pass by our defense allowed a quick score by Park Center. 1-0 at the half. The second half was well played too, but Park center proved to have too many weapons and took a 4-0 lead by the mid point of the half. Jenny Friday was again called to take a free kick and this time made it a no doubter, top shelf goal. The game ended 5-1 Park Center and finished the career of our seniors. Jenny Friday, Callie Ryan, Annette Scheil, Sarah Greteman-Leo, Dana Hentges and Emily Lundee.
Great season Lions!
