Girls soccer takes on Saginaw Valley tourney


Reid Bonifas, Sports Reporter

Girls soccer had a very exciting and busy tournament the weekend of April 21-22 at Saginaw Valley State University.

Since it was a weekend-long, overnight trip, the tournament did not count toward the team’s season record. However, to the girls, it was still just a big accomplishment and honor to win the tournament.

The tournament took off on Saturday. The team started off with a loss to Dexter. It was a hard fought game, but the team fell in the end.

Later on in the tournament, the girls found their footing and got a win on the stat sheet to Freeland.

Junior Morgan Aho did very well at the tournament. She had high stats in both goals and assists for the tournament.

In the teams last game against Midland Dow, they were neck-and-neck the entire game. Both team were an equal match for each other and ended up wrapping the tournament with a tied game.

“Overall, we did well,” senior Emily Lorkowski said. “It was a great way to get experience and play some great teams.”

The girls did a lot of team bonding during down time between games and at night. They spent a lot of time going out to eat and increasing team chemistry by playing Pictionary and having fun.

“It was a lot of fun and we bonded a lot,” senior Claire Feeman said. “It was good since a lot of the team was new.”
No matter what, the girls agree that both on and off the field, the weekend was a very successful one.
