Beach Soccer Road Trip Back to Blog »
Girls soccer opened their 2017 season Monday at Taft High School with a convincing 7 nil win.
Freshman Morgan Petersen opened the scoring in the third minute and the Eagles kept it going from there with Kaia Lunz, Lauren Demaris and Laura Staropoli all finding the net. GK Lexi Rodriguez, along with defenders Mary Nordlund, Megan Larson, Peyton Jones, Hollyn Dugan, Olivia Mills and Kate Groscup preserved the clean sheet. Kelsey Moore, Aly Larson, Kayley Cross, Bella McMahon, Brooklyn Rodriguez, and Natalie Van Gordon all played quality minutes and contributed to the win.
Immediately after the match the team headed to Cape Lookout State Park for two nights of tent camping, great food (courtesy of experienced camper Rob Groscup), campfires and hours on the beach. The girls even enjoyed a short ride into town to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory for free cheese samples and fresh Tillamook ice cream.
A return to Portland and some focused trainings are next on the agenda as the season schedule will have its share of significant challenges.
