Lady Cougars Kick Off Season
After several weeks of hard work, the Grace Girls’ Soccer team kicked off their season with a home game against McKinney Christian before Thanksgiving break. It was an important game for the Lady Cougars, as McKinney was on a 3-game win streak–and the Grace girls were up to the challenge! The game was back and forth in the first half, but in the second half, the Lady Cougars dominated on the field and the scoreboard. The final score was 3-0.
The goals for the Lady Cougars were courtesy of Elle Durham (2) and Addison Eli. Durham and Eli also provided the assists. Special mention also goes out to the defensive performance of the team, who allowed McKinney 3 shots total (none of which were on goal) and only allowed 18 passes in the defensive third of the field!
The Grace Girls will be busy this week as they co-host the Winter Soccer Classic with Brook Hill. They will play Thursday against Oakridge (5:30 pm), Friday against Lutheran South (3:00 pm) and 2nd Baptist (7:30 pm), and have a big showdown on Saturday with Trinity Christian (11:30 am). All games will be held at Grace. We would love for you to grab a coat, and a warm cup of cocoa, and come watch us compete!
