Tonight's game was special because it was Parents/Seniors Night to recognize those parents who raised these wonderful girls and supported them all along the soccer season. Not to mention those seniors and Captains who will be missed so dearly in the coming years to come (Katie Scharrer and Cheyenne Bearden).
The traditional "ball of fame" signing session took place when the 2 Seniors signed this special ball and handed it over to the 4 Juniors (future Seniors) as passing the flame of hard work and responsibility of the Caro Tigers team.
Caro played really a great game with more defensive work and control. Two mistakes allowed the opponents to score 2 goals and Junior and Captain Olivia Walker scored on a penalty kick after being fouled in the dangerous zone.
First half ended with Caro trailing 1-2. The speech from the coach was positive and pleasant as he congratulated his team to put in a good fight despite being behind on the scoreboard.
Second half was more intense than the first one and the visitors managed to add another goal to their score to finally win it with 3-1 to the favor of the Laker.
The MVP trophy was supposed to be presented to both Junior Amanda Rhodes and Sophomore Lily Lemmon, but because of the Seniors night, it was presented instead to the 2 Seniors Scharrer and Bearden. Not to discredit the efforts from the Seniors they also played a solid game.
This ends the regular season for the Tigers with 5 wins, 7 losses and 1 tie (the best record in years).
Next game is a district game at Birch Run against the Birch Run team this coming Wednesday, May 26 at 5 pm. Bus leaves at 3:30 pm from the Caro High School.
