OAKLAND– The nation’s longest high school girls soccer winning streak of 88 games was broken this past Monday night as the IHA Varsity Soccer team toppled Northern Highlands, walking away with the county final trophy and a 2-1 win.
IHA freshman, Rebecca Jarrett, scored the first goal, but soon after, Northern Highlands was able tie the game.
In the 74th minute, IHA senior, Alex Mesropyan received a pass from teammate, Julianna Shrekgast, and took a shot that went in, making the game 2-1.
After this, the Blue Eagles held their own until the end of the game, winning the title of County Champions.
IHA seniors Alex Mesropyan and Taylor Lupi end their counties with a huge win, but they are not quite ready to end their final season.
When asked about the upcoming states game, Lupi was quick to answer: “Our season is far from over. There’s still work to be done and we expect the team to work even harder as the end of the season gets closer.”
Mesropyan added, “We’ve lost the state final three years in a row, so getting there is going to take a lot of dedication and focus, but I believe in us.”
The girls of the IHA soccer team are up to the challenge and hoping to add to their trophy collection.
