It takes OT to beat the Bears

Ursuline's, Katie Lund put the Bears up 2-0 on a long range shot in the first half and off a header in the 2nd half.  The Bears were relentless in the first 60 minutes of play until the Lady Vikings started to chip away at "something".

That "something" stemmed from the energy coming from the crowd.  It is dead week and what a better way to take a study break then coming out to watch one of the greatest high school soccer rivalries in the country - Nolan vs Ursuline. 

"We couldn't let this crowd down", commented head coach Jay Fitzgerald, "They kept us in the game and they never gave up." 

The variety in the stands was impressive - friends, family, alumni, NORSEMEN, the Band, and even some of the boys soccer players showed up as they returned from the TCA win tonight.

After going down 2-0, the Lady Vikings scored 3 unanswered goals to win at home.  Fitzgerald went on to say, "We found that extra dimension that was have been looking for all year."  Junior, Emma Chandlee got the Lady Vikings on the board to cut the Ursuline lead in half off a corner from Sarah Brown and the just 5 minutes later Chandlee struck again off a perfectly centered cross from Gabbie Puente.

The game was even and the crowd was loud.

The Lady Bears turned up the pressure and the Lady Vikings responded getting to the end of regulation and a much needed break.  That 5 minute break before Sudden Death overtime was what the Lady Vikings needed to get their heads back on straight and regroup.

Overtime again, just like game one between the two teams at UTD back in November which saw Ursuline coming back from 2-0 down and taking the game in overtime.

"Now it is our turn", Fitzgerald told his team before overtime, "We are at HOME, don't let this crowd down."

Just 2 minutes and 56 seconds into the first overtime period, the Lady Vikings won it. 

Sophomore, Jordan Gamboa spun the center back, raced into the corner of the box and sent a well timed ball across to Brown who netted her 3rd goal of the year.  With that win the Lady Vikings improve to 6-2-0.

The JV match before hand was just as dramatic as the Vikings went down 1-0.  Well into the second half, it seemed like the Lady Vikings would never even the game and like that, a pair of Katherine Paul goals put Nolan ahead until the Lady Bears evened the match with about two to play and that is how it ended, 2-2.  Game one in November ended the same way but neither team was able to get on the board and that game ended 0-0.

TEAM LVS varsity continues their 3 game home string as they host Bishop Dunne tomorrow night at 6pm at Doskocil Stadium.

Shutout at Home and Ursuline on Thursday

The Lady Vikings scored 4 unanswered goals from four different players in route to a 4-0 shutout over TCA at Doskocil Stadium on Monday night.  Kathleen Keoughan got TEAM LVS on the board first, on a corner kick in the 10th minute of play and Gaby Larson added a second, just 5 minutes later. 

Ashley Fischer and Gabby Parra scored a pair of goals to put the game away with about 20 and 18 minutes to go in the second half. 

The Lady Vikings will host Ursuline on Thursday night with the JV getting things started at 6:00pm and the varsity following at 7:30pm.  Both games will be played at Doskocil Stadium.

Bishop Dunne comes to Fort Worth on Friday night at 6:00pm.

TEAM LVS goes 3-0 on the road

Katherine Paul and Elena Guera started the night off for the Lady Vikings as they scored the only 2 goals the JV needed in route to a 2-0 win over John Paul II as they stay undefeated on the season at 3-0-1.

The tone was set by the JV as the varsity took the field for the second match which was interrupted by a 15 minute power outage 7 minutes into the match.

A very impressive performance to cap off the night by the varsity as their road trip comes to an end.  They had to battle through a scrappy,  high pressure John Paul side, where patience won out for the Lady Vikings.

At times the Lady Cardinals had 11 players behind the ball and were very organized.  TEAM LVS stuck with their system and chipped away and were rewarded in the 37th minute on a goal by Emma Chandlee.  "I was very proud of the group tonight, we were opportunistic and Emma's goal was key going into halftime," said Lady Vikings head coach, Jay Fitzgerald.

In the second half, Nolan Catholic turned on the pressure a bit more.  The passing was crisp, the speed of the game increased, and more chances resulted for the Vikes.  The Puente twins combined for the 2nd goal and Gwennie fed Gabbie into the box and it was in the back of the net like that.  Then the roles reversed and Gwennie added the 3rd goal for the Lady Vikings.

The Lady Vikings attack was coming from everywhere and like that they were ahead 4-0 as Sarah Brown added the final goal of the night.

The depth on the roster really showed tonight as everyone contributed in another district victory for the Lady Vikings.  "The last 8 goals we have scored have been tremendous, from the build up to the finish," Fitzgerald added.

TEAM LVS returns home for 3 games next week starting with TCA on Monday at 7pm and Ursuline on Thursday at 6:30pm and 8:00pm.  The Lady Vikings will wrap up 2012 playing host to Bishop Dunne on Friday.

LVS Hits the Road Today; Tough Loss at Home on Monday Night

LVS looks to get back to their winning ways at Prestonwood Christian tonight for a 6pm varsity kick-off.  The Lady Vikings dropped to 1-2-0 last night in district play as Lynch stole a 1-0 victory from them on a Jamie Jeffery goal in the 60th minute.  Katy Hirschfeld and Gwennie Puente each had quality chances to equalize but the Lynch GK, Erin Scott denied both chances.  The Lady Vikings will play Lynch again on January 7th in Dallas.

The JV team had little problem with Bishop Lynch as they scored 4 goals in the first 20 minutes of play and held that led the rest of the night.  Lynch did narrow the score in the final 5 minutes but it was not enough as the Lady Vikes won 4-1 and improve to 2-0-1 on the season.

TEAM LVS Hosts Bishop Lynch on Monday Night

McCabe and Rios Come to Visit TEAM LVS

Alex Rios (LVS '11)
Lady Vikings Alumni, Allison McCabe ('07) and Alex Rios ('11) came by to visit TEAM LVS. 

McCabe and Rios were stand-out varsity starters for the Lady Vikings during their time at Nolan Catholic both earning 1st Team All-District and All-State Honors throughout their high school career. 

They both continued their soccer careers in college at NCAA Division 1 schools.  McCabe played at the University of Texas - San Antonio from 2007-2009 and is now working full time for a beverage distributing company and Rios is a sophomore at Northwestern State University where she has played in 27 matches during her first 2 seasons.  Rios was also a member of the Mexican National Team during her junior and senior year of high school.

Allison McCabe (LVS '07)
McCabe and Rios were big parts of the program, helping the program to 6 State Championship appearances, big wins over Ursuline, Southlake Carroll, California High, Cal South La Sal, Colleyville Heritage, and a tie to the #1 team in the country, St. Thomas Aquinas from Florida.  They also helped the Lady Vikings gain national respect as they were ranked as high as #8 in the country by ESPNHS.

McCabe visited last week and spoke with the players on how Nolan Catholic and the Women's Soccer Program helped her get were she is today.  The young LVS Program of 9 freshman and 18 sophomores listened closely to the succesful alum.

Rios visited this week and was a welcome sight to the players, as some of them had to opportunity to play with her during her time here at Nolan Catholic.

The Nolan Catholic Women's Soccer Alumni Match is scheduled for Saturday, January 5th at 11:00am at Doskocil Stadium on the campus of Nolan Catholic High School.  The men will follow at 1:00pm.

TEAM LVS Rolls in Home Opener

The Lady Vikings JV and Varsity teams combined for 8 total goals on Monday night with goals scored by 7 different players. 

The JV got off to a strong start with 2 goals in the first 8 minutes of play with goals by Kat Paul and Omar Rodenbaugh.  Paul put the game away in the 2nd half with her second goal on the evening as the JV defeated John Paul 3-0 moving to 1-0-1.

The Varsity followed with an impressive performance of their own.  After a heartbreaking loss to Ursuline in overtime, 3-2 last week, the Lady Vikings bounced back last night with a 5-0 win over John Paul. 

Kathleen Keoughan got the Lady Vikings on the board first off a header from a Sarah Brown.  The lead was increased to 2-0 five minutes later when Gabbie Puente got herself out of the back  to the endline and sent a low ball across the box where Emma Chandlee was able to beat the GK to the ball and place it into the near post.  The Lady Vikings continued the consistent pressure and took the 2-0 lead into the half.  Goalkeeper, Piper Head was solid in goal making a key save to keep the Lady Cardinals off the board.

It took the Lady Vikings a little less than halfway through the 2nd half to put the game away as Gabby Parra and Gwennie Puente combined for the 3rd goal of the evening marking Puente's second goal of the season. 

Head was called upon to make her 2nd save of the evening securing the shutout.

As soon as sophomore, newcomer, Jordan Gamboa entered the game, she took her first touch on a ball from Katy Hirschfeld, dribbled past the keeper, and like that, it was 4-0. 

Hirschfeld, a sophomore transfer from Frisco, wanted one too as she won a goalkick, took a touch and hammered home the 5th goal of the evening for her first goal as a Lady Viking.

TEAM LVS will be back in action next Monday night as they host Bishop Lynch with the JV kicking off at 6:30pm and the varsity to follow at 8:00pm.

TEAM LVS Falls Short to Ursuline in District Opener

The Lady Vikings missed out on an opportunity to play the Lady Bears at the State Final Final Four last winter but got that opportunity last Wednesday night dropping a heartbreaker in overtime 3-2.

The Lady Vikings started off strong and never really let off the pedal, even after going up 2-0 at halftime on goals by Gaby Larson and Gwennie Puente.  The assists were by Puente and Erin Hippert.

The Lady Bears evened the score just 12 minutes into the 2nd half before Nolan was able to get their first shot of the half.  The Lady Vikings kept steady pressure on the Bears the rest of the match but it wasn't until the 90th minute (last minute of the first overtime period) that the Bears ended the game in sudden death.  The season opener last year against the Bears was the same score but ended in regulation.

Ursuline has won the last 22 TAPPS State Titles.

The JV had another dramatic match as they were not broken down by Ursuline but couldn't get on the board either as the score ended 0-0.  The Lady Vikings have won back to back JV Post-Season titles against the Lady Bears, last years ending in a scoreless regulation/overtime with TEAM LVS winning the title in a shootout.

TEAM LVS Week #5

TEAM LVS enjoyed a 4-day week with Technique and Tactics on Tuesday and Friday and Classroom on Thursday. Wednesday the entire program spent time with the residents at the Lakewood Village Retirement Home. The Lady Vikings were able to touch the lives of the residents in many different ways from serving cookies, to painting nails, to just listening to stories. Many of the residents have no family to come visit them, so having these young ladies around the home, brightens the day for these residents. The Lady Vikings will continue to be active in the Lakewood Village Retirement Home throughout the year.

Saturday, September 15, 2012


A full week for the first time in 2 weeks, saw TEAM LVS get to work on the field on Tuesday and Friday... the team is getting a lot of work on the technical elements of the game and this week in and around goal. Friday the team got an opportunity to go to goal in 2v2 and 4v4 situations and the group looked sharp. On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday the group spent time in the classroom organizing their leadership manuals, with an emphasis on details, mental evaluation, and IMPACT. The group also discussed what they have determined as their building blocks. It was exciting to see so many players give their input. Next week, the players will begin their fitness logs and travel to Lakewood Village on Wednesday.

Monday, September 10, 2012


The Lady Vikings enjoyed a 4-day week with the group celebrating Labor Day on Monday. The team comes in on Tuesday and hit the field with a technical session followed up with a possession emphasis. Wednesday and Thursday the group was in the classroom hitting on the Mental Makings of a Champion and their Mentoring Groups. The discussions are becoming much more interesting as more players are getting involved. Friday the group hit the field again with a technical emphasis on taking space and dribbling. As temperatures rised above 100, the group pushed through and are becoming more comfortable with each other. Week 4 will be the first full week in 2 weeks and the focus will continue on getting the group closer with each other on and off the field.

Friday, August 31, 2012

Eye on the Future; Freshman MF Chelsea Surpris

IDing the top 11 from the Dallas ECNL PDP event

March 14th, 2012

By Chris Ackels

The ECNL/id2 Player Development Program is designed to identify top players in each region and gather those players for a weekend training and developmental camp. Throughout the spring, the ECNL and US Club Soccer are sponsoring 10 ECNL/id2 Player Development Program weekends across the country, inviting players from nearby clubs.

Players from all eight clubs in the ECNL Texas Conference took part last weekend’s PDP event at the FC Dallas complex in Frisco, Texas.

ESPNHS spoke with a few of the coaches who helped make it all happen after the event to find 11 players who stood out this weekend. Players are listed with club and high school.


Katie Gernsbacher, Lonestar, McCallum (Austin, Texas)

Coaches say: “Katie was one of the most versatile players we worked with this weekend. She’s really active, and seemed to always be around the ball. Attacking, defending, and communicating, she’s a great midfielder.”

Class of 2013

Lindsey Meyer, Dallas Texans, Coppell (Coppell, Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s tall, and she’s just a ball winner. She controls everything in the middle. She has great presence in the midfield, and she can really be dangerous on the dribble.”

Class of 2012 – Signed with Texas

Ashley York, D’Feeters, MacArthur (Irving, Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s a very dynamic player in the central midfield, always buzzing around. She really stood out as a top midfielder this weekend.”

Class of 2013 – Verbally committed to Baylor

Katie Uhler, Lonestar, St. Mary’s Hall (San Antonio, Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s a very strong player, and not afraid to play physically. She defended well, and turned out to be very active on the pitch.”

Class of 2014


Joanna Robertson, Challenge, Collins (Klein, Texas)

Coaches say: “She played a bit of midfield and forward, and really has the ability to do both very well. She showed herself to be a very versatile player.”

Class of 2013 – Verbally committed to Oklahoma State

Alli Murphy, D’Feeters, Plano (Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s technically a very solid attacking midfielder, but basically plays like a forward. Just solid all the way around.”

Class of 2012 – Signed with Texas Tech

Emily Bates, Dallas Texans, Melissa (Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s probably the best all around attacking player in the area. She plays all facets of the game well.”

Class of 2015


Alexis Urch, Lonestar, Round Rock (Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s really everything you want in a center back. She can shut down to most dynamic kids, and does a great job cleaning up everything in the area.”

Class of 2014

Meagan McCullough, Dallas Sting, Rowlett (Texas)

Coaches say: “When Meagan is on the pitch, she’s probably the most dangerous and dynamic player coming out of the back. She’s a defender who really helps your offense and midfield out.”

Class of 2013 – Committed to Texas Tech

Chelsea Surpris, Dallas Sting, Nolan Catholic (Fort Worth, Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s a freshman, but she didn’t look like it this weekend. She played right back, did a really solid job of shutting down some very dynamic players, and also did a great job of getting forward at the right times.”

Class of 2015

Gabby Deleon, Dallas Sting, Rowlett (Texas)

Coaches say: “She’s a big time ball winner and she shuts down everything back there. She’s also a great passer out of the back, and rarely ever gives up the ball.”

Class of 2014

Soccer is cruel game; LVS sees several chances pass them by

The Lady Vikings season ended in a heartbreaker as Kimberly Polasek's goal off a corner kick with 16 seconds left in the second 10-minute overtime lifted the Tigers (21-1-2) to victory at Benson Stadium.

Soccer is a cruel game and probably the only game where a team can own the majority of the game and come away with a loss. The Lady Vikings outshot the Tigers 11-3 where the only 3 tiger chances came off of set plays, 2 of which found the back of the net.

At 13-8-7, Nolan Catholic had three opportunities to score in the final 8 1/2 minutes, off two free kicks and one corner kick all well within goal range, but were denied each time.

The closest came with 8:20 remaining when freshman, Chelsea Surpris' free kick from 24 yards out ricocheted off the top cross bar and followed up by 2 rebound shots, one hitting a Nolan player and one was picked off by the St. Agnes goalkeeper.

"We had chances to win, but you have to execute, period," Vikings coach Todd Fitzgerald said. "We just couldn't finish it."

Ashley Ficsher used Gabbie Puente's outside cross to put Nolan ahead 1-0 early in the second half. St. Agnes answered with 10:30 remaining in the game when Allison Carter tapped in the equalizer off a corner kick.

Most of the contest was played in a constant miserable drizzle, and overtime was delayed nearly an hour due to lightning in the area.

The future looks extremely bright for the lady Vikings as they only lose 4 seniors and return 16.

LVS Ready for Final Four

The Lady Vikings are in the Final Four for a 12th straight year and making the most of it. It is about routine, sticking to a plan, and grinding it out.

Nolan Catholic Women's Soccer prides itself each year on playing one of the toughest schedules in the country. They already play Ursuline twice in district play and then kick off the New Year by hosting the best high school girls soccer showcase in the country with teams spanning from the West Coast to the East Coast.

Pressure is important to the success of the program and with 10 underclassman on the roster this season, that is what they have been faced with. Those youngsters account for over 50% of the Lady Vikings scoring this season. This would not be possible without the experience that the upperclassman have been through.

In the post-season, that is what matters... Experience. Have you been there? Well for 3 players on the team, the Final Four is a familiar place. Senior, captain Megan Billingsley has played in 3 while fellow seniors, Lindsay Murray and Allaire Langdon have both participated in State Championships. Murray scored the last goal for the Lady Vikings in the State Championship, just 3 minutes into the match against Ursuline last year.

The Lady Vikings start the weekend tomorrow morning at 11:30am at the University of Incarnate Word vs St. Agnes, whom Nolan defeated last season in the Regional Championship by a score of 1-0.

Regional Champs once again; On to the Final Four

Lady Vikings win 12th straight Regional Championship, their 23rd overall. Gwennie Puente scores her 18th just into the 2nd half to put Nolan on the board. Kathleen Keoghan played a ball out of the back and Emma Chandlee collected the ball at midfield who slipped a nice ball over the top to Puente for the first goal.

Chelsea Surpris drove a free kick just inside the near post for her 3rd of the year which turned out to be the game-winner. The Lady Vikings gave one up in the 73rd minute but not before senior, captain Megan Billingsley put the Lady Vikings up by 3 off a corner from Surpris.

Tonights game saw the Lady Vikings outshoot Antonian 22-2 with a 8-0 edge in corner kicks. Now at 13-7-7 on the year, the Lady Vikings look to advance to their 12th straight State Championship match.

The Lady Vikings will head to the Final Four next Thursday in San Antonio. The 1st semi-final will be played at 9am (Ursuline vs Bishop Lynch) and the 2nd semi-final will match up the Lady Vikings against St. Agnes. The Lady Tigers defeated John Paul in a shootout 3-1.

It all starts tomorrow; the new season is here

Light training today consisted of a trip to Northeast Mall for LVS Time.... That TIME IS NOW!! The Nolan Catholic Women's Soccer Team took in a scary movie and headed to dinner in preparation for the Area Round of the TAPPS Playoffs which kicks off tomorrow at Doskocil Stadium on the campus of Nolan Catholic High School. The match will begin at 11:00am.

The Lady Vikings were not as fortunate last year when they had to go on the road during their entire playoff run, NOT THIS YEAR. They have done what they needed to do to host the first round in front of their fans.

The 11-7-7 Lady Vikings are young, experienced, and confident. Those are the ingredients needed to make another run at a State Championship. The Final Four is set in San Antonio again. Regionals will be at a neutral site.

Come out and support your Lady Vikes!!

LVS in Post-Season Playing Best Soccer

The Lady Vikings spent the first 8 weeks of the season ranked in the Top 30 in the country, as high as #19, in the ESPNHS National Poll.

After going 2-1-1 in the nations top high school showcase, the National Elite Prep Showcase, they hit a bump in the road against the nations #2 team, Marcus. They then, were one game away from advancing to back to back Allison Horn Memorial Showcase Championship games before being upended by Keller.

After 2 consecutive showcase weekends, the Lady Vikings traveled down to Austin to face St. Stephen's which ended in a draw. That trip was all the Lady Vikings needed to realize they are playing their best soccer of the season.

On senior night, this past Tuesday night, they fell behind to 4A public school powerhouse, Highland Park, before storming back in the 2nd half on a Emma Chandlee equalizer.

Highland Park is currently undefeated. After they evened the score, the Lady Vikings had several chances to go ahead but eventually ran out of time and had to settle for another draw, their 7th draw of the season.

"We pride ourselves on playing the nations most competitive schedule year in and year out," said Nolan Catholic head coach, Todd Fitzgerald. He added, "We want our young ladies to feel the pressure on a regular basis, because now a days, that is life and it is extremely important that our players leave this program with the necessary skills on and off the field to make intelligent decisions as they move on to the next stage of their lives."

The education of life through soccer is what Lady Vikings Soccer is all about.

The Lady Vikings finish the regular season with an overall record of 11-7-7 which has put them in a position to host Houston St. Pius X in the Area Round of the TAPPS Women's Soccer Division 1 Playoffs.

Now, records are all at 0-0-0 and the Lady Vikings will look to improve on their consecutive streak of 12 straight State Championship appearances. Saturday kick-off is set for 11:00am at Nolan Catholics Doskocil Stadium.

Come out and support your Lady Vikings.

Senior Night; Chandlee Equalizes

The Lady Vikings played one last regular season match before the playoffs begin on Saturday. Undefeated 4A powerhouse, Highland Park came to town and the Lady Vikings were up to the test. The match was back and forth with the Lady Vikings putting a lot of pressure on the Lady Scots back line and then the momentum started to change and Highland Park got on the board and took the lead just before halftime.

Melissa Brodnicki, Megan Billingsley, Allaire Langdon, and Lindsay Murray were all honored at halftime. In their 4 years of commitment to Lady Vikings Soccer, the program has won 75 matches and have outscored opponents 273-109. Their service to the program is truly appreciated.

Just after halftime, the Lady Vikings took some time to get the rhythm back in the match but as the match went on, the Lady Vikings set the necessary tone to even the game on a goal by Emma Chandlee. The goal will be a candidate for Goal of the Year.

The ball was picked up at midfield by Gwennie Puente and she took it about 40 yards while Chandlee made an overlapping run out of the midfield and just as she got herself through the Highland Park backline, Puente slipped a ball through into her stride and the rest in history.

Moments later the Lady Vikings had 3 quality chances to score the go ahead goal and earned their 7th draw of the season.

The Lady Vikings are currently at 11-7-7 and open the playoffs as they play host to Houston St. Pius X at Doskocil Stadium on Saturday, February 4th at 11am. The men will follow as they drew Houston Christian in the first round.

Lady Vikings draw at Byron Nelson; Playoffs start next week

After a slow start for the Lady Vikings, they explode for two second half goals by Ashley Fischer and Gwennie Puente. With an overall record of 12-6-5, this was just what the Lady Vikings needed going into the playoffs next week.

As the match went on Nolan got better, as the match turned physical, Nolan stayed composed and establish a consistent rhythm which created plenty of space for Fischer and Punete up top. Senior, Lindsay Murray set the tone as soon as she came on the field in the second half and had the assist on the equalizer.

Kathleen Keoghnan also made an impact as she was slotted in the middle of the park to balance and link things up.

Freshman, goalkeeper Piper Head had a solid 2nd half to keep the Lady Bobcats off the board.

The Lady Vikings head to Austin tomorrow to play a friendly event at St. Stephen's.

Youthful Experience here at LVS

A 14-game district season to start the year and now their 7th game in 9 days, the Lady Vikings get to enjoy a light week with a game on Wednesday night and then a couple friendly matches in Austin on Friday.

The playoff preparation begins.

The Lady Vikings currently sit at #2 in the district and have spent the last 8 weeks in the ESPN Top 30 National Poll. This is the longest consecutive stretch in the National Polls for Nolan Catholic since the National Polls began in 1998 and they have been as high at #3 and been in the Top 10 on 6 different occasions.

With an 11-6-4 overall mark, the Lady Vikings look to continue their winning tradition into the playoffs beginning the first week in February.

This year they travel down a different path and they have done so with 8 underclassmen. The Lady Vikes had to go on the road during the entire post-season as they finished 4th in the district last season after finishing no lower than 2nd at any time in the history of the program.

From front to back these underclassmen are making a difference starting with Gwennie Puente up top with Emma Chandlee, Sarah Brown, Chelsea Surpris, and Rebecca Traynor in the midfield and Gabbie Puente and last years, Nolan Catholic Athlete of the Year and TAPPS 1-5A Newcomer of the Year, Elizabeth Havenhill in the back and in goal for the Lady Vikings is Piper Head.

This core of young players have a wealth of experience playing for some of the best clubs in the country and have put Nolan Catholic back on the map gaining local, regional, and national respect.

Since 1983, this program is just shy of 500 wins, averaging more than 16 wins a year. They look to advance to their 12th straight State Championship match and capture their 12th straight Regional Championship.

Upcoming for the Lady Vikes is Byron Nelson on Wednesday, St. Stephen's on Friday rounding out the season at home hosting Highland Park which is Senior Night honoring 4 seniors: Lindsay Murray, Melissa Brodnicki, Allaire Langdon, and Megan Billingsley.

#29 LVS played #19 Kingwood to a Draw

Lady Vikings, Gaby Larson put the team on the board in the 17th minute in a match that saw a tale of 2 halves. Larson took a clearance and hit it first time from about 25 yards out but the Lady Vikings gave up the equalizer later in the 2nd half and that is the way it ended.
