Scoring Streak Runs Dry; Draw at Lynch

Lady Vikings Comeback Falls Short; Puente Gets 2 More

You know when high school soccer season is here, the temperature drops and the wind picks up. Nolan Catholics arch rival, Ursuline comes to town and the match didn't disappoint. This is arguably one of the greatest rivalries in high school sports.

Ursuline's Candace Johnson and Kellie Schnurr put the Lady Bears up by two but the relentless Lady Vikings fought right back and evened the score with 2 more goals from freshman, forward Gwennie Puente. "Gwennie is a special player," head coach Todd Fitzgerald said. Puente has scored 5 goals in the first 2 matches of the season.

Nolan Catholic fought back but it wasn't enough as with less than 2 minutes to play, Kate Hadju scored the game-winner for the Bears. Fitzgerald mentioned that, "Ursuline knows how to win matches like this but we are real, real close."

The Lady Vikings drop to 1-1 while Ursuline moves to 1-0. LVS heads out on the road next Monday night to take on Bishop Lynch. Lynch defeated TCA last night in double overtime 1-0.

Lady Vikings Explode for 8 Goals in Home Opener; Freshman Hat Trick

Freshman, forward Gwennie Puente scored her first, second, and third goals of her high school career to complete the hat trick in her first high school game. With a 4-0 lead at halftime, the Lady Vikings were well on their way to a 1-0 start in district. There was a good rythme in the game and a good flow about things.

"We wanted a strong start and with 3 goals in the first 10 minutes, our team responded," said LVS head coach, Todd Fitzgerald. Last years TAPPS 1-5A Newcomer of the Year, sophomore, Elizabeth Havenhill also scored multiple goals with 2 unassisted goals in the second half.

Seniors Lindsay Murray and Alex Perez added a goal a piece as well as junior, Maggie Kleiser.

Fitzgerald went on to say, "These young ladies have worked extremely hard in the off-season and we feel like we have a good team identity right now."

The Lady Vikings are back at it again tomorrow night as they play host to Ursuline in a re-match of last years State Championship. The JV match will kick-off at 6:30pm with the varsity following at 8:00pm at Doskocil Stadium.
