In a thrilling comeback, the Varsity Lady Bearcats demonstrated resilience and determination in the second annual Cats and Hounds Tournament. After a 0-1 loss on the morning of Saturday, December 9, the Lady Bearcats bounced back during Penalty Kicks with a score of 4-3 after a tied game of 2-2.

This past Friday and Saturday, December 8 and 9, 2023, the PRHS girls’ soccer team competed in the Cats and Hounds tournament. The current record leading up to the tournament is 4-1-2, giving the ladies confidence with the weekend ahead.

Efforts from many players led to the victory and ultimate third-place trophy in the tournament. Goals by junior Defensive Midfielder Hannah Bourgault and freshman Striker Lila Colgrove tied the game up to 2-2, leading to a round of penalty kicks at the mark.

Successful shots from sophomore Attacking Midfielder Amayah Buenrostro, junior Center Defender Christa Kelly, and senior Defensive Midfielder Serenity Wulfing kept the Bearcats motivated and in the game. Additionally, senior Goalkeeper Elie Chavez was successfully able to block three opposing shots. 

All these factors set up the final shot for senior Right Wing Back Rylie Helberg. As the ball soared through the air after the kick, the field was met with cheers from players and spectators as it entered the goal. The final score was 4-3 and the Girls Varsity Soccer team have respectfully fought for their well deserved 7-1-3 record.

The Bearcats won three out of the four games with a 10-1 win against Monache, a 2-0 win against Sanger, which Freygang believes was one of the team’s best moments, a 0-1 loss against Atascadero, a tough loss according to Chavez and win against Redwood in penalties after a 2-2 tie.

The next home game is on December 15, 2023, against Clovis North at PRHS home field, Parish field at 4:00 pm
