Girls Soccer took on cross-town rivals, Doherty High School, in a league game last Thursday, 4/19, at Gerry Berry Stadium. Although the Cougars put up a tough fight, they fell short of a victory losing 3-0. This brought their overall record to 5-7 and their league record to 1-2 and the Spartan’s league record to 2-1 and overall record to 2-7.

“Even though we lost, I’m really proud of how we played as a team and didn’t give up. We have improved so much from last year when we played Doherty and the score reflects that. My goal for the rest of the season is to keep fighting and pushing each other to be the best we can be,” said Isabella Janney, 11.

The game started off slow with only one Doherty goal scored in the first half and an additional two in the second half. Although the Cougars did not come out on top, goaltender Kylie Anderson, 12, stopped 18 of the 21 shots taken leaving her with a 90% save percentage. However, even though Coronado lost, the score still shows a great improvement from last season.

Captain Alex Brown, 12, who tore her ACL before the season began and was sadly unable to play this year commented: “We lost 3-0 to Doherty, but compared to a 12-1 loss last year we did great. Our team has been pulling together better all season and the girls played really well against a team that “mercied” us last year before the half was even over.”

Doherty’s Taylor Cosgrove, 10, was the team’s powerhouse player scoring two out of the three goals of the night and keeping the Cougars from a victory.

“This year our goal is to fight for the games we know we can win and to come together as a cohesive unit on the field. I’ve seen dedication in each and every one of our players and their hard work day in and day out is what makes our better record and team possible,” added Brown.

Lauren Strizich, 10, also had a positive spin to the loss adding, “We’ve reached my goal of not losing 10-0 to some of the harder teams in the league, such as Doherty.”

Girls Soccer only has two games left in the season unless they receive a spot in playoffs which will extend their successful season! Make sure to come out and support at the next game against Fountain-Fort Carson on 4/26 at 4 P.M at Gerry Berry Stadium.
