Varsity gets 8: Ursuline up next

The varsity continued district play tonight in their home opener against TCA and wasted no time.  With 6 goals in the first half and 2 in the second, the Lady Vikings cruised to an 8-0 result over the Lady Trojans, improving to 4-0-0 on the season and 2-0-0 in district play.

"Not a bad day at the office for us, missed a couple early and then got one and settled in," head coach, Jay Fitzgerald said.  He added, "we got too comfortable at times but we really proved that we can be tough to play against if we focus on the details."

TCA does not have a JV team, so that day off will help in preparation for Ursuline on Monday night.  The JV will play at 6:00pm and the varsity to follow at 7:30pm.  The match will be played at Jesuit in Dallas.

Training for both teams tomorrow at Gateway and in the computer lab on Friday.  There will be no JV match against All Saints this week and it will not be rescheduled.

LVS Opens District with a win; Home Opener Tomorrow

The Lady Vikings JV and Varsity teams combined for 8 goals Monday night as they opened the TAPPS 1-5A District season on the road at John Paul II.  Marissa Baldasti, Koryn Brookshire, Katie Ripple, Becca Traynor, and Kat Paul were the 5 different LVSers that scored goals in the JV's 5-0 win.

Head coach, Alex Mechalske, saw tons of positives in the win.  "A lot of players contributed and set the tone for the season", Mechalske commented.

The varsity followed the JV but had to come from behind early.

"We were in all the right spots, but early on we struggled to get a hold of the ball and we paid the price," head coach Jay Fitzgerald said.

After going down a goal in the 6th minute of play, the Lady Vikings scored 3 unanswered goals.  Elena "Lenny" Guerra got the scoring started in the 25th minute with a gritty effort getting on the other end of a Gwennie Puente cross.  "The goal was very important and the way we chipped away at them to get it, was impressive," Fitzgerald commented.

Puente got, what would be, the game-winner in the 2nd half after taking a pass from Emma Chandlee right up the middle and slotting it home for a 2-1 Lady Viking lead.  Puente wasn't done then as she was able to weave her way through the John Paul defense and slip a well timed ball through to Emily Keoughan for the 2 goal lead.

That is the way it stood for the Lady Vikings as they improve to 3-0-0 on the season and 1-0-0 in district.

Next up for the Lady Vikings is TCA at home tomorrow night at 7:00pm at Doskocil Stadium.  This match will just be a varsity match as TCA was not able to make a JV team.
