Lady Miners are NSCIF Soccer Champions!

“I could not be more proud of our team. In one of the two reminder texts coach (Brian Cowley) sent us this morning he said, 'This will be a day that you will remember for the rest of your life - let's make it worth remembering - I have enjoyed the journey with you,' and that really sums up the game. I could not have asked for a better way to end my high school soccer experience,” said  Rebekah Kimball, who scored the winning goal.

I could not have asked for a better way to end my high school soccer experience,” said Rebekah Kimball, who scored the winning goal.

YrekaTransferNewIn another dominating defensive performance the Yreka Miners girls soccer squad defeated the Orland Trojans 1-0 on Saturday afternoon, to claim the Northern Section Division-II soccer crown.

On the way to the final, the fourth-seeded Miners shutout #5 Wheatland 1-0, and defeated #1 Sutter 2-1…well, previously #1 Sutter.

The first half featured fantastic saves by both goalkeepers. Fifteen minutes into the match, Yreka’s Rebekah Kimball launched a shot that seemed destined to find the back of the net, only to be tipped up and over the cross bar by the Orland keeper.

With eight minutes to go in the half, Orland was awarded a penalty kick. However, Miner Morgan Frost came up with a huge save to keep the contest scoreless going into halftime.

Yreka controlled play for the majority of the first half, and that continued in the second stanza.

At the 47-minute mark, Kimball got a second opportunity to notch a goal, off a pass from Alisha McFall, and put the shot into the left corner, for a 1-0 lead. Things looked good for the Miners, but there was still a long way to go.

“When I scored the goal I knew it could very likely be the match goal, but there’s always a chance the other team will score and the game is never over until the final whistle blows,” said Kimball.

Although Orland did have a few chances to tie the match, for the most part, the Yreka defense stifled the Trojans the remainder of the way.

The Miners finished the season with an overall record of 12-7-3, proving it ain’t how many you win, it’s when you win them.

It was Yreka’s first section title since 2003, when the Lady Miners defeated Wheatland 3-0 to win the D-II title. Yreka was the two-seed that year.
