Regis Girls Varsity Soccer Team Take on Douglas County High School
May 22, 2023
Dedicated, strong, resilient. These are just a few words that describe the Regis Jesuit Girls’ Varsity soccer team.
“The relationships that we build through soccer and this Regis Jesuit team and community last long after the season ends, and we leave high school,” freshman Ella Bailey said.
On May 4th the girls’ varsity soccer team played against the Douglas County Huskies. These two strong teams came out hot in Kellogg Stadium. The game starts with a kickoff from the center of the field. Regis moves the ball downfield, but it quickly gets intercepted by a DC defender. Within the first ten minutes of the game, Julia Tierney, class of ’23, scored the first goal giving the Raiders one up on the Huskies. The Regis Jesuit girls’ soccer team’s unity was shown in this game through countless hours of practicing, playing games, and traveling to tournaments. They have bonded over shared experiences and their love of the game. They push each other to be better, to work harder, and to never give up no matter where they are as players on the field. The first half ended with the score 1-0 Raiders. They support each other through injuries, losses, and personal struggles.
“They are more than just teammates they are family,” freshman Annabelle Turner said.
The second half begins and Kathryn Saunders on the Douglas County Huskies scores, tying the game up with the Raiders. Twenty minutes later Kayley O’Toole scores a tap-in goal leaving the score at 2-1 Raiders. With fifteen minutes left in the second half, Kayley O’Toole scored her second goal of the game. The score is now 3-1 Raiders, leaving a huge advantage for the girls to attain victory.
After eighty minutes of hard work, the girls’ Regis Jesuit team wins against the DC Huskies. The girls’ team ends with a prayer and happy faces.
