Girls Defeat ‘dogs; Play for Conference Title Friday

DSC_8123DSC_8134Senior Madison Parker scored two goals within a couple of minutes with a heroic effort and the Oaks girls soccer team defeated Norfolk Academy, 2-1, to earn a shot at the TCIS title Friday at ODU starting at 6 p.m.

It was the first win in school history over the Norfolk Academy girls soccer team. It was also the first time in her five years on the team that Parker played forward.

Norfolk Collegiate fell behind early, but righted things and threatened often during an even first half.

In the second half, keeper Jessie Cavolt made several key saves to keep the Oaks in the game before Parker, moved to striker from defense late in the game, made her memorable runs, one on a freeing pass and the other stealing the ball and going in solo.
