The Cathedral girls soccer team is one win away from a State Tournament appearance.  The 14-2-1 Crusaders will play East Grand Forks at 5:15 p.m. at Sauk Centre High School in the Section 8A finals.  First year Cathedral head coach Abby Schneider joined me on WJON.  The two loses and 5 of the 6 goals Cathedral has allowed all season have come against the top 2 ranked schools in Southwest Christian and Providence Academy.  The only other team to score a goal against Cathedral was ROCORI in an 8-1 loss to the Crusaders on September 11.

Cathedral has just 1 senior and 4 juniors on the roster and has been led by underclassmen which includes 2 8th graders on the team.  Schneider says these girls believe in themselves and work as a team.  She says they are not allowing a lot of quality shots on goal thanks to their work on defense.  Schneider explains they communicate well on the field and they are a very deep team.

Schneider says they have 14 girls on the team with at least 1 goal and 15 girls with at least 1 assist.
