Congrats to the #lvsClassOf2019

The Lady Vikings continued district play at home last night vs All Saints improving to 18-5-2 on the season.

Senior, defender Lauren Bettinger got the night started with her first goal of the year on her first shot of the year.  How fitting it was for her to score the game-winner on SENIOR NIGHT.  It was decided before the season that she would not play her senior season due to a variety of concussions she had throughout her club and high school career.  Head coach, Jay Fitzgerald mentioned, "LVS is a collection of stories and for Lauren to score the first goal of the game, on her first shot of the season is special and it couldn't happened to a more deserving person."

The Lady Vikings went on to score 6 more goals, 2 in the first half and 4 in the second half.  Along with the goals from Bettinger, Abby Geiser scored 2 on the night while Maddie Caffey, Avery Hutka, Maggie Tepera, and Sophie Bailey each scored.

Congratulations to our LVS Class of 2019....
