On Saturday, November 2, the team played a tough Brewster Bear team to a second sudden death situation and ended the season with a disappointing loss to Brewster 1-0. “I’m very proud of this team,” said Coach Jim Broome. “They overcame a lot of tough times and battled through some tough games, but never gave up.”

Chelan ended up with a 2-12 (3-16 overall) record for the year, but despite the dismal win-loss record, the Lady Goats not only enjoyed the season and playing the game, they also learned a lot. “They improved with every game they played,” said Broome. “By the end of the season, they were becoming competitive.”

Against Brewster (7-7 record) they battled hard throughout the game, holding Brewster scoreless until the very end of the game when both teams had to go through two Sudden Deaths to finish the season.

One of the highlights of the season was defeating Quincy in front of a home crowd 6-3. “We played some great soccer for the entire 80 minutes in that game,” said Coach Broome. It was a game that had Daisy Franco scoring four goals with two assists from Bridget Wyant. Her third goal came in the second half off an assist by Shandiah Mendoza and the fourth with an assist off Mariela Galvan.

Towards the end of the game, Daisy teamed up once again with Bridget Wyuant and assisted her in the fifth goal in thegame. Bridget scored her second goal off an assist from Casey Jackson.

On Wednesday, October 23, Chelan faced Okanogan on the Bulldog’s home turf and after holding the strong Bulldog team to only one goal in the first half, ended up suffering from a strong offensive attack from Okanogan in the final minutes of the second half to lose this game 4-0.

Chelan opened the season with a non-league win over Manson 3-0 and also beat Omak 2-0 during CTL league play.

It was a great learning season for the Chelan girls who are looking forward to a better season next year.
