The Irish have had many struggles this season, with multiple injuries among the team. Senior Anna Spellacy, junior Katherine McCauley, sophomores Rosie Martin, and Abby Beasley. The Lady Irish Soccer team has already played in this year’s City Tournament against Covenant Christian and Chatard. After a strenuous loss to Chatard for the City Title, The Lady Irish look to bounce back, and start the Sectionals Tournament with a positive attitude.

Sophomore Rosie Martin said, “We have a good chance if we put all of our efforts in and play for each other. We have worked hard all season to get to this moment and want to leave it all on the field . We have been looking forward to these upcoming games since the start of the season and will put everything into winning these games.”

So far the Irish are 8-4-4 in the regular season. Now that they will begin the tournament any game could be their last.
