Union Community Girls Soccer: Athletes of the Week

Posted:

Monday night when cathy reiter headed home the put-away goal against dubuque wahlert-it may have ended one era of dominance and started a new one...After 9 straight trips to the state tournament--the golden eagles have missed two in a row...union with just three seniors on the roster is in muscatine for the first time in school history...

CATHY REITER UNION Comm. SENIOR said:

"It's amazing, it's something we've been working for all season. It's something I've been working for all through high school.

LIZZIE ZONDO UNION Comm. HEAD COACH said,

Some girls said my goal is to win state and to me as a first year coach that was a lofty goal.

The excitement keeps building and building and today when I woke up, that's the first thing I thought of.

The knights were 17-2 last year but the different this year is freshman striker darian powell...she's scored sixty-eight times in twenty games...

She's a powerhouse. She's great.

The anticipation to see how she was going to be before the season started was big.

After that game where she had eight goals, we just said we didn't know it was humanly possible. I think we are all kind of amazed by it.

 DARIAN POWELL

UNION Comm. FRESHMAN said.

No I didn't expect it all but I have great teammates so they let it all happen.

IF Defense does indeed win championships then union should have as good a shot as anybody, their defense has only allowed five goals all season.

They're amazing. There's not really a lot of pressure, I never think they're going to let it get behind them.

We have a really strong sweeper Brittany Frush and she does amazing back there and doesn't let anyone by.

Our keeper is also Olympic developmental. Other teams haven't really seen much of her yet because our defense hasn't been tested that much but I'm very confident in the way that our defense plays.
