State Tournament for Lady Panther’s soccer starts Saturday in Granby

The Lady Panther’s Soccer team is gearing up for the 2015 3A State Soccer Tournament.

The girls will play at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 9, at Middle Park High School. They finished their season with a No. 8 seed for the state tournament and will get a bye in the first round and home field advantage for the second round. Their first opponent for the tournament will be decided in the first round of the state tournament.

“We are working hard in practice and doing our drills. We prepare for every game as if it is our last and we expect to be competitive,” said Middle Park Coach Jared Bacon. “Good luck girls. Knock em dead.”

The Panther’s finished out their season with an impressive 12-2 record, dropping only two games; one to The Academy from Westminster and the other to Frontier Academy from Greeley. Over the course of the season the young athletes outscored their opponents a total of 86 goals to 11.

Leading the offensive drive for the Lady Panther’s this year is sophomore Annalys Hanna with 26 goals on the season. She has been helped in her efforts by seniors Becca Bolen and Lydia Anderson with 14 and 12 goals respectively. Juniors Sarah McClain and Alyssa Landa were also among the top contributors to the offensive side of the Lady Panther’s game with 9 goals each.

Junior Georga Feek continues her work as goalkeeper for Middle Park. The junior has a 90 percent save rate and has made 95 saves this season. Feek received a bit of help late in the season from sophomore Maddie Eichler who managed to prevent any goals being scored during her time on the pitch.
