The MHS Girls Varsity team opened their 2019 season with a game against Roy. The game was a back and forth affair, with Roy applying a lot of pressure and Murray trying to counter attack. Murray found themselves down a goal as the game entered extra time at the end of regulation. The Spartans found the game tying goal with little time to spare. Murray came out hot to start overtime and scored the golden goal 2 minutes in. Sydney Wilcken put in a performance that the Spartans needed from their captain, scoring all 3 goals. Sammie Sofonia had the assist to set the goal up to tie the game.
The Spartans will look to build off of this emotional win as they take on Corner Canyon, a rematch from last year’s 5A championship game, on Thursday, August 8th.
