Just another post about Erika’s High School Soccer team…..the District 10 Champions.

Bishop Macdonell goalie Tianna Sullivan (No. 13) dives at the ball as St. James’s Victoria Kallitsis tries to get to the net during first-half action of the District 10 senior girls soccer final Tuesday at St. James.
It’s not about the number of shots you take in a soccer game, it’s about the quality of those shots.
The undefeated St. James Lions learned that in cruel fashion on Tuesday afternoon as the Bishop Macdonell Celtics downed them 3-0 to win the District 10 senior girls soccer championship at St. James.
The Lions shot early and often in the game but the majority of their strikes flew well wide or high of the Celtics’ net.
Bishop Macdonell, meanwhile, didn’t make its first attempt at goal until the game was already 20 minutes old.
Moments later, Celtics striker Reighan Pflug made the Lions pay.
Pflug scored two tidy goals a few minutes apart – the first in the lower left corner of the net and the second in the upper left.
It was more than the Celtics needed to hoist the District 10 plaque for the first time since the 2005-2006 school year.
In the second half, Kerrie Sullivan added a third tally for Bishop Mac as they went on to the 3-0 shutout victory.
