Girls Varsity Soccer · Sectionals Preview: Girls Soccer

Hanover Central: The Lady Wildcats have had a great season this year. They are currently 9-4 overall and 2-1 in conference. They have one game left, which happens to be conference. Players to lookout for are Freshman center midfielder Emmi Doty and Senior forward Savannah Ferry. Doty is only a freshman and has had a great season filled with assists and goals. Ferry is currently the second-leading scorer in Hanover history, but has sustained an injury in the past game and is unsure if she can play in sectionals. The Hanover Central Lady Wildcats received a by for first round and will play Hammond Clark in the semifinals on Thursday (10/8) at 5:30 p.m.

Hammond Clark: Due to COVID-19, all Hammond schools’ fall sports were halted for most of the season. They were voted to be resumed on September 16, and the girls would not let up their opportunity. Unfortunately, due to required practices, they haven’t got a lot of times for games. They have two conference games to play then sectionals begin. The Hammond Clark Pioneers received a by and will face off against the Hanover Central Wildcats in the semifinals. The game is on Thursday (10/8) at 5:30 p.m.

Wheeler: The Wheeler Bearcats have had a pretty stellar season this year. Currently as I am writing this, the Bearcats are 9-2 overall and 4-1 in their conference. They still have two non-conference games before their first sectional game. Players to look out for are Senior midfielder Elena Giorgi and Junior forward Anna Capellari. Wheeler will face off against the River Forest Ingots in the first round of sectionals on Tuesday (10/6) at 5:30 p.m. 

River Forest: The River Forest Ingot season has been about learning and bettering the infrastructure of the team. The Lady Ingots are currently 0-6 overall and 0-4 in their conference. They have one final non-conference match before their sectional game. The River Forest Ingots will face off against the Wheeler Bearcats in the first round on Tuesday (10/6) at 5:30 p.m.

Hammond High: Due to COVID-19 pandemic, all Hammond schools’ fall athletic programs were cancelled dramatically. This meant that the Lady Wildcats did not get a complete season to play soccer.
