Presentation varsity soccer faced off against Saint Ignatius on Friday, January 22 and gained a major 2-0 win. The team is now ranked 5th in CCS this season.
The game started at 3:20 p.m. after the teams both warmed up and put their game faces on. Seniors Michelle Kay and  Taylor Johnson started the kickoff. In the first 10 minutes, senior Shelby Galaviz continually attacked the ball even when the ball was mostly in the defensive end. Junior Jennifer Randazzo, the star goalie of the varsity team, kept everything out of the box with her punts passing over half the field.
Michelle Kay’s headers and Julia Shon’s throw-ins teamed up to start the attack towards St. Ignatius’ goalbox. Sixteen minutes into the half, Megan Mccarthur scored off of a rebound right over the goalie’s head giving Presentation a 1-0 lead.
Eight minutes later, St. Ignatius had a close call off of a corner kick, but Jennifer Randazzo gobbled up the soccer ball once again. After this moment, the momentum shifted into a major offensive attack for the Panthers.
With two minutes left of the first half, Taylor Johnson took the corner kick that landed right in the box where Maire Rooney ripped a shot from the top of the six-yard line, landing in the back of the top right corner of the goal. This ended the half with the Panthers up 2-0.
The second half began and, after 11 minutes, sophomore Megan Mccarthur went down with a kick to the side of her shin, taking her out for the rest of the game. When asked how she was doing, she commented, “I’m on Motrin right now, but I’ll be fine!” Sophomore Rachel Ometer went down later near the end of the game after she collided with last month’s athlete of the month, senior Emma Caringello, for a header. She is recovering well now, too. Ometer commented, “I am out with a concussion at the moment. But I will not give up, and I will keep supporting my team.”
For the last 30 minutes of the game, arms were flailing and fouls were being handed out right and left, but the Panthers dominated and kept SI out of their box. The game finished with the score of 2-0. Junior Aneska Alino after the win said, “It was amazing! We worked so hard to keep our title for first place.”
