Prep roundup: PK pushes FLC past Trinity Prep
May 10, 2013
The Forest Lake Christian girls soccer team is moving on to the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division VII playoffs after topping Trinity Prep, 1-0, in Napa.
The No. 5 seeded Lady Falcons got their lone goal and the game-winner in the first half on a penalty kick.
After a Trinity Prep player was called for a hand ball in the goalie box, FLC freshman forward Sarah Jeffries netted the penalty kick to grab the edge.
Pitching a shutout in the goal for FLC was freshman goaltender Riley Ballard.
The Lady Falcons (9-6-1, 7-2-1 Central Valley Christian League) will hit the pitch again Wednesday in the second round of the playoffs when they travel to take on top-seeded Bradshaw Christian.
Woodcreek 5, Nevada Union 1
The Lady Miners closed their season Thursday by honoring lone senior and team captain Bailey Voss, then falling to Woodcreek by four.
Nevada Union trotted out a few new pitchers in its final game, pitching Sarah Lundmark and Cheyanne Ramos. The two managed the Woodcreek offense well, allowing just five runs between them. In two previous games between Woodcreek and NU, the Lady Timberwolves had tallied 16 runs.
From the plate, NU got two hits from Savannah Ozuna and two hits from Torri Parman.
Despite a season in which the Lady Miners went 5-19-1 overall and 0-15 in the Sierra Foothill League, head coach Kelly Boren said he is optimistic about next season as NU will return 13 of its 14 players.
