The postseason was full of tears for the talented, senior-laden girls soccer team. After a dominating win over Gaither in the district semi’s, the Lady Warriors came up against a team that they lost to very early in the year, Wiregrass Ranch.

“It was two very stressful, very competitive halves of soccer,” said senior forward Alexis Bredeau. She was the lone goal scorer for the Warriors in the 2-1 loss.

“Our work rate was there and we possessed (the ball) most of the game, but we just got unlucky and unfortunately couldn’t come back,” said Bredeau. The loss set the Lady Warriors up against a familiar opponent, George Jenkins, who knocked them out last year on the same regional stage.

It started aneven keel for the Lady Warriors, up until the first water break. The road trip was short, as George Jenkins cruised to a 5-2 victory. The bright spot was Bredeau, who broke the school single-season goal record, scoring her 34th in the losing effort.

“I think we gave everything we had and played well,” said junior midfielder Danielle Eule, ” but sometimes in soccer the score doesn’t always reflect our performance.”

With anchor’s like freshman forward Danielle Darius, Eule in the midfield (uncommitted but considering Miami, USF, East Carolina, and Colgate. All Division I soccer schools) and junior Miranda Gonzalez on defense (committed to the University of Tampa), there is a chance for redemption next season.
