The Thunder Mountain High School Lady Falcons waited all season to earn a victory, and they made the most of that opportunity by holding the host Redington Huskies scoreless and putting eight shots into the back of their opponent’s net in a Saturday road win.
“The team had amazing energy going into the game,” TMHS coach Cindy Eriksen said. “And it carried through the game to earn their first win of the season.”
TMHS junior Kaidree Hartman led the Lady Falcons with three goals, senior Mackenzie Olver and sophomore Kaelin Tibbles added two goals apiece, and senior Mercedes Cordero scored one.
TMHS seniors Kylie Morris and Koby Yturbe and freshman Avery Cornett-Markey all had shots just miss the mark.
“We put the pressure on to start scoring and once they did it clicked,” Eriksen said. “We saw an immense amount of pressure being lifted off the team who have been seeking the scoring opportunity all season long. I am so proud of the tam for their amazing efforts during the game and throughout the season. The willingness to be team players and to rise to the occasion was seen and felt throughout this trip.”
The game marked the final high school pitch performance for senior captains Cordero, Morris, Olver and Tibbles.
