The Iber Holmes Gove Middle School Girl’s Soccer Team Wins Season Opener

The Iber Holmes Gove Middle School Girl’s Soccer Team takes their season opener with a 3-1 win!

The girls had their first soccer game of the season at home Thursday, September 17th.  What a game!  On this very hot day, the girls had a slow start and at half time they were down 0-1, Litchfield taking the lead. 

During the second half of the game, the girls started showing us what they are capable of doing.  By working together Jeni Plender had a nice shot with a deflection off one of the opposing team’s defenders to tie the game, 1-1.

 Shortly after, Hannah Reardon kicked a beautiful arched shot from the 35 yard line, up and over the goalie to bring the score to 2-1.  Kathryn LaCasse then finished with the last goal to give Raymond a win of 3-1. 

After the game Hannah was asked, what do you think the team did well? Hannah said, “moving the ball and creating angles for the teammates during the second half of the game”.

Great defending by Erin, Alexis, Lauren and Elizabeth who never gave up!  Erin was asked after the game what her favorite part of soccer was?  Erin stated, “how the team works together to win games”.
