Knights prepare for sectional play

Thursday, October 16, 2003

Northview's Rachel Deal will be an important cog in the Knight's defense versus West Vigo tonight.

The Northview girls soccer team looks to create another 'first' this postseason when they take on the West Vigo Vikings in their opening game tonight at Terre Haute South High School.

Last season the squad won their first postseason game in school history when they defeated the Vikings 1-0 in the first round before being defeated by South Vermillion 2-1 in the semifinals. Terre Haute South would go on to win the sectional with a victory over the Wildcats.

This season Northview hopes to extend their season past that second round on a sectional path that will direct them through the Vikings in their opener, an opponent whom they defeated 4-0 just a week ago.

In that contest, Cecilia Latta opened the game with a penalty kick goal in the first minute of play as the Knights never looked back in their victory. One they hope to repeat this evening.

The winner of their 7 p.m. contest will get to face the winner of the 5 p.m. game between Terre Haute North and South Vermillion.

In opening round action, Terre Haute South defeated visiting Greencastle 2-0 to move on to Saturday's 10 a.m. semifinal versus Sullivan who had the bye through the first round.
