The Raiders came out strong and controlled the tempo and possession of the ball for all 80 minutes against the visiting Cadets. Cascade did not have an answer for the overwhelming pressure of the midfield which included Frank Viglietta, Leda Turpen, Morgan Eifert, and Erin Lauer. The defense, led by Emma Eifert, also stood strong, giving up only one shot on goal the entire game. Even with the dominant performance, the Raiders struggled to find the back of the net with their many chances. Abby Downard finally broke the tie with a well placed shot from in front of the net, assisted by Erin Lauer. It was a great team performance to build on for Saturday’s challenging game at Heritage Christian at 2 pm this Saturday.
