Girls' soccer sport shorts, 2004-05



In a game that was reminicent of past Valley Championships, FC met Central Valley Christian on Feb. 24 in Visalia for the 2005 version that proved every bit a nail-biter as previous championship matches against Templeton.

FC opened the scoring in the first half as junior Ashley Sherr scored her 64th goal of the season in the fourth minute (new Central Section record) and the Eagles led until 16 minutes left in the second half.

After CVC’s Chelsey Wilgenburg tied the game, the teams traded chances and Eagle keeper Christina Cabias made five spectacular saves to keep the game even (nine saves overall). Then a controversial penalty was called in the 68th minute and CVC’s Abby Vannette scored on the ensuing penalty kick.

However, the Eagles did not roll over and quit. The team pressed the Cavaliers and had numerous chances to score including junior Kim Bimat’s shot that just grazed the cross bar with four minutes left.
