After an intense Sweet Sixteen playoff game between Fossil Ridge High School and Broomfield High School, the Sabercats lost 0-2 in the second half. This loss not only marked the end of Fossil’s journey to state but for every senior on the team, it meant the end of Fossil soccer forever. It was not only a season of hard work but hardships as the team continuously lost girls to ACL injuries, but they overcame every obstacle to get to this game.

 

First half was completely dominated by Fossil. The offensive line took every opportunity to take the ball to the net and attempt a shot. While no shots went in for them, the Eagles didn’t get any either. Both teams played with a ferocity only seen in the playoff games. That ferocity led to Rachel Boyle getting a yellow card in the last ten minutes of the first half. Despite getting carded Boyle came back with a slide tackle that kept the ball from going into Fossil’s net before the goalkeeper could get control of it. Saves like this kept Fossil in the game and prevented Broomfield from taking the lead early on.

 

Once again Fossil took the field by storm when the girls began the second half. This continuous aggression and strong play from the Sabercats caused the Eagles to change how they played in the second half. Broomfield became more aggressive and constantly pushed Fossil to the defensive line. In the last twenty minutes of the game, Fossil was overpowered and the Eagles scored their first goal. This hit in the Sabercats confidence changed the feel of the game and allowed Broomfield to once again score. However Fossil was not taught to quit, they fought until the last second to try and get a goal. They went home with a final score of 0-2, the Eagles would advance to the next round of playoffs.
