Indians Defeat DC-G To Go 8-6 On The Season

by Jodi Steinlage

The girls’ soccer team was in action tonight in what turned out to be a beautiful night for soccer. The girls would come in looking to lock down a winning season for the 3rd time in the last 4 years. From the start, the girls showed they were the better team and dominated large parts of both halves. The Indians would get on the board in the 11th minutes with a finish from Sophomore, Lindy Slocum. The Indians would continue to find success in moving the ball and creating opportunities, but couldn’t find the back of the net the rest of the 1st half.

The 2nd half would find the Indians even more success in playing one of their better halves of the season. Slouch would again find the back of the net just 7 minutes into the half (assist to Senior, Kaia Graham). The score would remain 2-0 until Mary Nelson (assist Senior, Aleeya Cheney) would put the game completely out of reach with a goal in the 78th minute. The 3-0 win would move the Indians record to 8-6 on the season as well sending them to the 2nd round of regionals.

“We were really happy with how the girls came out and played great soccer for large parts of the game. This was one of our best games when it comes to making off the ball runs and really moving the ball around. We just need to keep working at connecting on those runs and not making mental mistakes here and there. With our next game being against Norwalk, we are going to have to make sure we take advantage of all our opportunities. However, we enjoy this win and the chance to play some more soccer.”

The Indians would outshoot the Mustangs 25-4. The defense (Brooke Engelhardt, Paiven Knoot, Attie Teeter, Emily Lunsford, and Kirby Nelson) would do a good job keeping them in check and ensuring the shots they had were easy for Freshman, Kyrsten DeWees to gather up. She would have 2 saves on the night.

The Indians will travel to Norwalk on Tuesday night for a 6:00 start.
