MTZ girls soccer starts season 2-1

Staff Writer

The Mt. Zion girls soccer team started its season 2-1 and won the consolation championship at the St. Teresa Tournament.

Their lone loss came against Pleasant Plains in a 2-0 loss and picked up wins against St. Teresa and Danville.

“I thought we were pretty good,” Head coach Jonathan Moore said after Pleasant Plains. “The best stretch for us was about the first five to seven minutes of the second half. I think we started getting on our toes a little bit more and getting involved in the 50 -50s and winning some balls and kind of gave us a little burst there at the beginning of the second half. It’s the first game of the season so you don’t know what to really expect, but overall we’re pretty pleased.”

Against Pleasant Plains, Senior Lindsey Scherer stepped into the role of goalkeeper. The senior registered seven saves including a sequence where she made back-to-back tough saves with the ball in the box to prevent Pleasant Plains from scoring a third goal.

“We’re excited about Lindsey coming out and, and filling this role for us,” Head coach Jonathan Moore said.” I talked to her, she’s a team captain and she stepped up, and filled this role. I know it’s not the most exciting thing for her and what she wants to do, but she knows we need, we need that role filled and so I was happy that she did that and she came out and had a very solid game. So we were happy with that.”

This week the Braves will face Danville, Williamsville and St. Teresa.
