Spring weather in Colorado is always an exciting mixed bag. Faith Girls Soccer (1-0) was able to beat the blizzard of 2019 by a few hours and in the process secure a solid 3-1 victory over Frontier Academy (0-2). In what turned out to be beautiful evening, Faith was able to put together two very solid defensive halves along with timely offense to get the 2019 season off to a good start.
Coach Amber Jenkins has put together an experienced group in some spots and a solid group of newcomers to her lineup. JoJo Wilkie got the scoring going in the first half by scoring off a cross and putting it in the back of the net. Frontier Academy struggled against a stout Eagles defense but Lilliian Leschinsky turned a misplay by the Faith keeper into an equalizer.
Rachel May was able to score off a volley before halftime to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead.
Faith continued to dominate in the second half, but struggled to score against the Wolverines. Senior Georgia Swanson score on a long kick gave the Eagles a 3-1 lead halfway through the second half. The Eagles defensive backfield lead by Aviana Large would make sure the lead would hold up.
Faith Christian plays in arguably the toughest soccer in conference in all Colorado soccer with schools such as Jefferson Academy, Kent Denver, Peak to Peak Charter, Colorado Academy and Lutheran. The gauntlet of conference opponents awaits them come April.
The Eagles’ played two games this week, and will play at home against Bishop Machebeuf on April 3.
