Girls varsity extends win streak to 6
In the first of two #TuesdayTop10 photo essays, this week, we are pleased to take you back to House Park to revisit the girls varsity and JV games played there last Friday night.
GIRLS VARSITY 5, CROCKETT 0: In the varsity game, the Knights kept their district record unblemished after three games with a 5-0 clinical takedown of Crockett at House Park Friday night. The win also extends the team’s win streak to six. Mia Gomez scored twice and Gillian Rashid, Avery Miller and Delaney Carter accounted for the other three goals. Carter also had an assist along with Karen Esparza and Anna McClellan. The team hopes to get to 4-0 in district and get consecutive win No. 7 when the Knights face the Reagan Raiders at 7:45 p.m. tonight at the cozy confines of the Noack Sports Complex.
JV GIRLS 0, CROCKETT 0: Freshman goalkeeper Emma Mattie preserved a scoreless tie when she made a crucial save after colliding with a Crockett striker who had broken free and created a chance to win the game for the Cougars. The Friday night draw was marked by good defense on both sides, and the Mac defensive effort was led by senior center back Alison Arteaga. The Knights’ offensive effort was led by senior Emily Matkin who created many scoring opportunities and freshman Lily Dickey who handled many of the free kicks the Knights were awarded throughout the game. The JV Knights hope to resume their scoring and winning ways when they take on Reagan at 6 p.m. tonight at Noack.
