The Raiders were one of 32 teams competing for a regional soccer crown this week. Their goal was to be one of eight teams to be playing in the Semi-State round next week. To do so they would need another effort like their game against Covenant Christian this past Saturday to win their first ever Sectional Crown. They would need to do so against their neighborhood rival Speedway. They would need to score one more goal than they did in an earlier match against the Sparkplugs. And, continue their shut out string, to move on.
The teams were evenly matched. At the end of the first half the score was tied 0 – 0. In a physical game, the outcome was decided with 29 minutes left in the game when Speedway got the only goal of the session. The Raiders played like champs, but lost 1 – 0.
Several records were broken this season and our seniors should be proud of all they have done in their careers at Cardinal Ritter.
Thanks for a great season Raiders!
