The Cardinal Ritter Girls Soccer Team opened up the with the IHSAA Sectional Semi-Finals Thursday night at home against Washington Community High School. The Lady Raiders were confident coming into this one, but did not underestimate their opponent once. They got their usual pre-game speech from Coach Duncan and had a jolt of adrenaline with a rare start from injured senior, Haley “Comet” Sullivan, and came out hot.
The Lady Raiders couldn’t miss on the night winning 18-0 with goals coming from Azul Aceves, Chelbi Hill, Emma “The Equalizer” Eifert, Emma Litzelman, Ana “Dribbling” Danner, Grace Jaisle, Amara Allen, Tia Brown, Erika Martinez and Pamela Rocha.
With the win the Lady Raiders advance to the Sectional Final under the lights! The game is scheduled for a 7 PM start at Cardinal Ritter High School against the team they had to beat last year in the Sectional Final, the Covenant Christian Lady Warriors. Tickets will be $6 a person.
