Holy Family Girls Soccer vs Jordan Sept. 10th, 2018: Grace Murphy '19, Caitlin Rock '20

The girls soccer team bounced back with a win against Jordan after suffering their first loss of the season against a tough Chanhassen squad two days prior. Senior Captain Grace Murphy reflected on their loss, “Our 0-1 loss to Chanhassen demonstrated how we can be competitive with any team and pointed out flaws in our attack which can be improved upon.”  

The girls team wanted to get off to a fast start and put some shots in the net after that scoreless effort against Chanhassen. They wasted no time in accomplishing that goal. 

Just five minutes into the game Holy Family opened the flood gates with a corner kick from Senior Captain Brielle Bornhorst finding the foot of Reyana Schaffer (10) who placed it past Jordan’s keeper. 

Just a few minutes later Schaffer returned the favor crossing a ball to Bornhorst who rocketed a shot into the top corner of the net. 

Holy Family did not let up as they continued to apply pressure and control the game, not allowing Jordan any chance to get an attack going. At the 30-minute marker they broke through once again with a penalty kick from Junior Ella Haley who calmly stepped up and drilled a shot into the corner. 

The scoring exhibition would continue with two more goals in the first half by the Fire. Schaffer scored her second goal off an assist from Murphy and Captain Paige Wicka (12) would score her first of three goals on a through ball from Maggie Rothstein (11). 

Wicka would score twice more to complete the hat trick. The first coming at the 42-minute marker and then again off a pass from Grace Murphy five minutes later. 

The scoring died down for the Fire the last 30 minutes of the game as Holy Family’s defenders continued their strong defensive play not allowing any attacks from Jordan’s forwards. Freshman Mary Furlong scored the final goal, curving a shot around Jordan’s goalie, making the final score 8-0.

Checking in with Head Coach Michael Murray after the game he had this to say, “Getting off to an early start is very important because if you can get that first goal, you have the momentum the rest of the game. It is a point of emphasis for us that will be very important moving forward.”

The girls now 2-1-1 look to carry this momentum tonight against Mound Westonka at 5pm.
