MOLLY WRAPS UP THE SOCCER SEASON

SECTIONAL FINALISTS. Molly's sophomore soccer season ended in the Sectional Final this evening. Ben Davis dropped a hard-fought (literally) game, 2-1, to 5th-ranked North Central (will anyone who witnessed that game ever forget the blatant clothesline tackle an NC player got away with?).

TWO GOALS. Molly's season highlight happened in the Sectional Semi-Final game against Speedway on Thursday. She scored both goals for the Lady Giants in their 2-1 victory over the Sparkplugs. The lowest point: a red card (based on two yellow cards for rough play) early in the season. While undeserved, it was a painful enough experience to ward off such predicaments in the future.

FROM DEFENDER TO MIDFIELDER. Molly's always been a tough defender. She's taken a lot of pride in defending her goal as a starter throughout her freshman and sophomore seasons. But midway through this season, her coach asked her to play outside midfield. In that position she's had the opportunity to become more of a playmaker and scorer. The position fits her tenacity, speed and stamina.

CONGRATS. Congratulations on a strong season, Molly. We are proud of you. We enjoyed watching you compete and grow as a player and person during these weeks and months. You never backed down. You led your team in tenacity and intensity. Looking forward to what's ahead for you.
