Wolverine girls gunning for state

Fourth District tournament

Wood River?s Alexa Gilberti, Syringa Stark and Rachael Richards take a bow during ?Senior Night? Tuesday.

By the numbers, the Wood River girls? soccer team is posting one of its best seasons ever.

Twelve wins with eleven by shutout, 44 goals scored and one allowed add up to a pretty stellar season, but coach Greg Gvozdas isn?t looking at what his team has accomplished.

Gvozdas is focused on what they still have to do.

?I just want us to win districts and go to state,? Gvozdas remarked. ?And the score line in districts is not as important as two victories.?

#1 seeded Wood River played #4 Jerome in the first round of the Fourth District 4A tournament yesterday. The victor meets the winner of Burley?Minico in the district championship at 11 a.m. Saturday.

In their final game of the regular season Tuesday, the Wolverines traveled to Burley and blanked the Bobcats 2-0. Margii Driscoll converted her own corner kick and Erin McQueen scored for Wood River.

?For most of the game they had six or seven fulbacks. They made it difficult for us to shoot,? Gvozdas said. ?They tried to attack the gaps, looking for a breakaway, but, unfortunately for them, the way we have been playing that was not going to happen.?

Gvozdas said what he is most pleased about at this point in the season is how his team has gelled and how well they are playing as a team.

He has also rewarded some junior varsity players for their hard work all season. Gvozdas has given the following girls the opportunity to practice with the varsity squad over the next two weeks, including Michelle McMurdo, Kaitlin Farrington, Katie Leo, Callie Skahill and Grayson Palmer.
