SOCCER v. MAGELLAN

While the team is young they fought very hard with their limited roster. Jordan Holmes did a great job in goal fighting to keep the barrage of shots out while the defense was similarly tested. Despite having a broken arm and wearing a soft cast, Finley Spivey did a great job in the midfield and Avery Black turned away offensive attacks consistently frustrating Magellan’s offense. “So proud of these girls for coming out and playing for themselves and for me”, said coach Walston. “They have a great deal of heart and I am privileged to be coaching this group of young ladies” he added.
