The Marauders girls faced Sedona Red Rock High School on Thursday, Jan. 17, winning 1-0, to bring the team’s record to 10-3 on the season. The girls final game of the regular season will take place in Flagstaff on Thursday, Jan. 24, against Coconino High School.The Mingus Union girls soccer team [10-3] went up against the sturdy defense of the Sedona Red Rock Scorpions [8-6], but the Marauders beat the Scorpions for the second time this season, 1-0, on Sedona’s soccer field.

“The performance of my girls was quite good, although we had a difficult time finishing,” Marauders Head Coach Bud Rhodes said. “Since our front forward [Gabi Guerro] has been out all season with an [anterior cruciate ligament] tear, we’ve been scrambling on finishing. We also had opportunities which we didn’t capitalize on.

“The Sedona girls played with their hearts and souls in. They had better organization than the game before and tried hard to win. It was a good, tight match.”
