Cicero Prep and Tempe Prep faced off for the first game of 2018. The Centurions played aggressive soccer moving the ball well up and down the field. Tempe Prep was able to jump out to an early lead, and then Fiona Hewitt broke away from the pack, shooting on the goalie but to no avail, as the ball passed just outside the right goal post. Cicero regained it composed then pushed up the field with Brooke Bice having an opportunity that did not convert. The defense led by Kelly Callaway, Ivy Hewitt, Eva Cole and Olivia Torel repelled a number of Tempe Prep attacks – holding strong in the middle, while Olivia stopped a number of shots.
The team as a whole played incredibly well.
