GIRLS SOCCER

(ran PC edition)

Gooooooaaaaaaalllllll(s)!!!

One last chance remained for Wesley Chapel. Could the Wildcats win their first game? Would they even score a goal for the first time all season?

No and yes.

Wesley Chapel took a 3-2 lead against Ridgewood on Friday before settling for a 3-3 tie in its final regular-season game. It marked the first time the first-year Wildcats (0-18-1) scored.

"They were so pumped up. They were so excited," Wesley Chapel coach Ann Wagner said.

"They really wanted to prove to everybody that they could score."

Kristen DeWitt, Marie Larraccas and Sara Harrison made history by becoming the first Wildcats to score goals.

Sweeper Courtney Curtis and goalkeeper Paige Maskavicz contributed solid defensive efforts, Wagner said.

Maskavicz rarely had a moment to catch her breath, coming up with 46 saves to preserve the tie.
