Senior Rebecca Wheeler scored the lone goal against Sunset on Saturday.

Regarding the season, Birkhofer said she was, “Really happy with how this season went. Our team grew and improved so much this season.” The team set a goal to make the playoffs, meeting the goal pleased Birkhofer, “Proud of our accomplishment that we set out to make State Playoffs.”
