On September 9th, the girls came out on top against the Raiders for the first time during the regular season. Though the Cobblers had defeated Stevens to win third place at State last year, a regular season win still eluded them. In this year’s match, Stevens got on the board early with a goal from Emily Haar, but the Lady Cobblers were quick to regroup and score four goals on Stevens. The Cobbler scorers were Kyra Butler, Megan Keohane, Kayley Neville, and Abby Fenhaus.

Head coach Mark Morgan was very pleased with the results, along with all the girls on the team. With most of the team shedding tears of joy, they knew they must get back to practice. Morgan knows that the next meeting between these teams could be a deciding factor for state this year. The Cobblers need to win all three of their remaining matches to secure a spot in the state tournament, so, Morgan affirmed, “Winning would be big for us.”

All eyes will be looking for the top eleven players from both teams to defend their honor. The big game is September 23rd at Sioux Park, with JV boys and girls at four, the varsity girls at six, and the varsity boys at eight.
