The Lady Devils had a trying week as they lost two games and tied one.
On Tuesday Sept. 19 the girls lost to Richfield, 3-1, during an away game, though they tied their homecoming game on Thursday, Sept. 21 against North Sanpete with a score of 1-1.
The team had a third game against Blanding’s junior varsity team on Saturday, Sept. 23 at home, losing 3-2.
The team had many incredibly strong moments throughout their game against Richfield, with Alithia Hirt scoring in the first 10 minutes of the game.
But the squad just couldn’t seem to put enough goals behind the net to secure the win.
Forwards Emree Olson and Corah Moody made several runs down the opposing defense but had trouble translating that into goals.
The Lady Devils had a much closer game against North Sanpete; the game pivoted back and forth between the two teams and either team seemed to dominate the other. Hirt scored a goal in the first half, however, that did give hope to Grand for a win — until the Lady Hawks’ eventual tying goal in the second half.
This week leaves Grand with a 3A South Region record of 1-1-5 and an overall record of 3-1-5.
The Lady Devils have a game scheduled today against Emery, with varsity action starting at 4 p.m. The girls’ soccer team will end their regular season on Oct. 3 against Manti on the road.
