History was made yesterday on the field at Marvelwood! An intrepid group of young ladies represented Kildonan School in the first EVER girls soccer game played by a Kildonan group!
With Samantha as a late addition, the Lady Kodiaks played a wonderful, gutsy, frustrating yet inspiring game against the Pterodactyls Ladies Varsity!!!
Elle gained immense experience in the goal, showing great potential! Coach Evans challenged her to make six saves on the day, and she made exactly that! While giving up five goals, she nonetheless kept things competitive! We were led by Chloe and Emelia on offense, and though we failed to score, these two created at least three excellent scoring opportunities! Our midfield of Allison, Devon and Layla ran a marathon while learning so much about playing the middle of the field. Likewise the defense of Kiana, Zia, and Vanessa cleared ball after ball out of our defensive end!
Though we lost this game 5 – 0, the girls certainly gained the respect of a contending HVAL varsity team! There is much potential for a girls team in the future at Kildonan! With the return of Mary, we know we have the scoring punch to find success in the future!
All parents and coaches at this game had nothing but admiration for the initiative, effort, and example set by our Lady Kodiaks on Friday!
A journey begins with one step!
