Cate 5 Dos Pueblos 6 (overtime)
It was a nail biter for Cate today playing our first league game against Dos Pueblos at home and going into overtime. The first half was a pleasant surprise for Cate winning four draws and leading 3-2 at the half. Cate worked hard and played smart on defense. Senior Maya Fenelon and juniors Lilly Zanze, Taylor Kane, and Riley Borchard were disciplined and aggressive on-ball accounting for 9 turnovers in the half. On attack, junior Lily Riehl dominated. Scoring four goals and controlling offensive position. Lily was the heart of our attack, forcing DP to face guard at times. Senior Mia Foster also had an impressive goal off a rebound. The second half of the game was similar to the first. I was proud of freshman Liz Sutter in net with 9 saves and senior Piper Brooks whose strong off-ball movement helped break their zone.
Overall, there were a lot of good things happening on the field. Once we have a little more practice under our belts, I look forward to playing DP again in April.
Lily Riehl 4 goals
