Every team has a signature moment.
We have told one another all year that our team is a strong team, and that it is a special team. I have made it no secret that this is the best team I have ever coached.
And yet, we still lacked that signature moment.
Coming into tonight’s match, we were looking for ours.
At tonight’s match, check out some of these team accolades.
Our 10 goals scored is the most ever scored by a BCHS team in history.
Our 10-goal margin of victory is the biggest such margin in program history.
Our 25 goals (and counting) rank as the best goal return in a season in program history.
Five of our players scored in the match, which is the first time that has ever happened.
We knew that if we put it all together, we were capable of greatness. Tonight, we played a complete match. If you did not get a chance to watch it, check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GehOF86bI7Q
From our five goals, we had some interesting occurrences. Check them out!
Chloe Peterson and Autumn Rogers collected their first career hat tricks (3 goals in the match) with some excellent finishes.
Skylar Tucker recorded her first career goal (and what a beauty it was) and assist in tonight’s match.
Amber Miller had two assists from throw-ins, the first time that has ever happened for us.
Aubrey Tabor and Kate Adkins added to their goal tallies with nicely taken finishes.
Mariah Stephens picked up an assist on Kate’s goal to end the match. It was a great pass!
Aside from these statistical aspects, and these girls above would be the first to say this, soccer is a team game. Individual greatness is something that doesn’t really exist in this sport. We truly are a team.
I want to spend a little time thanking this year’s seniors for their contributions.
Abby, Paige, Amber, Olivia, Autumn, Meghan, Isabella, Aubrey, Morgann, Anna, and Chloe, you are far and away the largest senior group we have ever had, and you are all crucial components of this greatest side in our school’s history. You all show up and bring great attitudes, great effort, and great desire each night. I told you after the match that it had not hit me yet that you all would be finishing your careers so soon. I told you that when it did hit me, it would hit hard. I’m still not quite ready to release the floodgates on you all yet, because we still have some business to take care of…
See…the thing about signature moments…yes, tonight was definitely one for us…but I do not think we are quite through writing our history just yet. We have some more signatures to collect this season.
Who’s with me?
Coach (Mr.) Garrett
