The Lady Falcons kicked off the season with a great performance against Cicero Prep. Despite losing 4-0, the girls showed a tremendous amount of grit and determination. Overcoming early jitters, goalkeeper Jennifer Encinas has 9 saves in the second half to keep the girls in it. Captains Liliana Fendell and Kimberly Aguilar had great games and spent the game disrupting the Cicero offense. Darla Armer made spectacular plays every time the ball touched her feet. “The girls are already starting to see the results of their hard work. We would have loved to get an early season result, but the process is working and we have a number of people contributing early,” coach Scott said after the game.
The Jr. High Girls Soccer team had their first game in the playoffs against Scottsdale Preparatory, which was played at Chandler Preparatory Academy. Seventh grader Kim Aguilar had 14 saves as goalie during the whole game. Sarah Garcia was the stand-out defender of the game, always going after the ball and never tiring. Even with only ten players in for the Falcons during the first half, the Spartans were only able to score one goal before halftime. With 8 minutes left in the game, Darla Armer went in to score and was tripped by an opponent which led to a penalty kick for the Falcons! Darla made the penalty kick. The girls stayed strong and positive throughout the game, but lost 5-1 which means their season has come to an end. “I’m very proud of how far the girls have come this season. Not only did they improve as players, but they really had fun tonight in their last game. It was great to see how close they became as teammates,” said Coach Beam.
