The girls are hard at work this season competing against all teams, working their way to playoffs. “This season is good so far. It’s going better than I had predicted,” said junior striker Brenna Repko.

Gaby Chaffee, the backup goalie, had to step in when the Devils’ goalie, Casey Collier suffered an injury early in the season diving for a ball within the last six seconds in the kickoff game against CASH.

The team’s toughest competitions this season have been against Maplewood and Iroquois, and the team defeated Maplewood, but lost to Iroquois 3-0. “My favorite memory is when I scored the game winning goal in double overtime against Maplewood,” said Repko.

The playoffs will begin a week after region play is finished, but the date is TBA.

“Our goal is to win a playoff game and win the last few games we have left. We are trying our hardest to grow and succeed, but if we don’t win any playoff games, we will still be proud of overcoming the obstacles we have faced together,” said junior Sheena Byham.

The Lady Blue Devils’ next game is Saturday, Oct. 14 at Girard at 1 p.m.
