The Lady Raiders hosted AAAAAA opponent Hillgrove in a thrilling contest on Friday, February 28, 2014. 

The Lady Raiders found themselves trailing 7-5 at halftime. Determined to fight back, they put together three more goals and, with less than two minutes remaining, pulled ahead 10-8.  Hillgrove, however, punched back with two quick goals to tie the game, 10-10.

Freshman Goalie Helen Derrick had 13 amazing saves to keep the Raiders in the game. Offensively, Sophomore McKenzie Lewis, Senior Mary Petzer, Senior Kaely Dodd, and Junior Nadia Romero all contributed goals.  Senior Courtney Weinhoff led the defense.  


Two more strong opponents come to Hoskyn Stadium this week as the Lady Raiders host West Forsyth on Monday, March 3 and Woodward on Thursday, March 6.
