The Lady Viking Soccer Team has kicked off the season with some very impressive goals, saves and tackles. In a preseason filled with multiple season ending injuries to key players, the ladies have fought hard and battled tough competition in each game. Below is a link to some highlights from our early season games featuring goals from Grace Bennie (2), Cindy Moreno (2), Kenia Diaz (1), and Diana Ramirez (1). You’ll also see several Spider-Man style saves from goalkeeper extraordinaire Maria Salgado.
Against tough competition, all games have been decided by no more than 2 goals, with Lanier scoring in each. Many younger JV players including Leslie Salinas, Gladis Melendez, Gisselle Garcia, and Marilyn Medina have all risen to the occasion by filling varsity roster spots lost due to injury.
The team will take on Girls soccer powerhouse Liberty Hill on Friday in Liberty Hill as the last warm up to what should be an exciting district season.
If you’re short on time, I highly recommend the Moody game which features an epic, upper 90 goal from Grace Bennie right outside the 18.
