The Coronado Varsity soccer team had their first loss of the season against Pine Creek on Sept 28. Previously, they had been undefeated with six wins, ranking third in the state and looking to continue on a winning streak. This loss was a close game, as the final score was 2-1. Contributors to the Cougar effort included Angelo Salazar, 12, scoring the only Coronado goal of the game, and goalkeeper Chase McElhany, 12, saving 14 attempted shots. This loss moved them down to 13th in the state, ten ranks below their previous ranking. With such a strong start to the year, the whole school is eagerly awaiting an incredible recovery and continuing of a great season from the team.

Soccer’s next game is Oct 3 against Doherty at Sand Creek Stadium. The next home game is Oct 6 against Palmer.
