The Lady Ranger soccer team earns a spot in the regional finals after a clutch win against EGR


Game after game, the girls varsity soccer team proves that it’s a force to beware of. This week, the team took on its biggest game yet in another heated matchup for the Lady Rangers.

“I’m feeling very confident going into tonight’s game against EGR because we have been grinding and preparing a lot to earn this win,” senior Mattie Sexton said. “We have a lot of depth on our team and going into a game knowing that is very important.”

The girls went head-to-head with the EGR Pioneers at Cedar Springs on Tuesday, June 7, in the regional semifinals. Both of the teams have had an impressive lineup this season and took everything they have been working on and put it out on the field.

“I feel very confident that we are gonna go out there and be the better team tonight,” senior Theryn Hallock said. “We obviously beat them in regular-season play but that doesn’t mean anything with playoffs, so we just have to continue to play our game and stay together as a strong unit to get the dub.”

Cedar Springs tried its hardest to best FHC, but the Lady Rangers didn’t even give the Red Hawks a chance. The final score was 8-1 in the Rangers’ favor; the girls are now headed straight to the regional finals where they will have to put it all on the line to get the win and advance to states.

The Lady Rangers strike next at 6:00 PM on Thursday, June 9, when they take on Spring Lake at Cedar Springs.

“I feel great, especially knowing we are one game closer to states and moving onto the regional finals,” senior Katie Hurbanis said. “I trust this team and know what special talents we have and am excited to continue on.”
