Two days later, on Thursday, Sept. 23, the Lady Devil found redemption with a 3-0 shutout victory against the Lady Bulldogs in Gunnison.
“The girls played well,” said GCHS head coach Mike Camps. “They just couldn’t capitalize against North Sevier. Sometimes that happens.”
The Lady Devils scored two points before halftime against the Lady Wolves, but North Sevier came back in the second half to tie the game right before the final whistle blew.
“It was the golden goal to win,” said Lady Devil team captain and goalie, Abbie Camps.
North Sevier ultimately pulled out one last final score to win the game in overtime.
The Sept. 25 game against Gunnison was a strong win for the Lady Devils, Camps said.
“We probably played the game of our lives there, he said. “From the beginning, even though it was blistering cold, we had them from the start.”.
GCHS sophomore Taitum Cook was benched with a leg injury in the second half of the Gunnison game, but Grand’s defense came through for the Lady Devils in the end.
Grand’s junior varsity team had a slightly more successful week, winning against North Sevier by the score of 5-0 and beating Gunnison 3-0.
The Lady Devils were scheduled to play the American Leadership Academy Lady Eagles in Spanish Fork on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Later in the week, the Lady Devils will travel to Ephraim for a matchup with the Manti Lady Templars on Thursday, Oct. 3.
