Girls Soccer Wins at Calvary Day to Advance to GHSA State Semifinals

SAVANNAH, Ga. – After a round two win over Athens Academy, senior forward Atalia Ramirez stated that the Lady Vikings needed to stay focused and keep working hard.

The Lady Vikings did exactly that on Friday night, May 10, defeating the Calvary Day School Lady Cavaliers 2-0 on the road to advance to its eighth consecutive Final Four, the last three coming as a member of the GHSA.

FPD will now travel to play Paideia on Tuesday, May 14 in hopes of earning a place in the GHSA State Championship match.

Calvary and FPD battled to a scoreless first half. FPD held a 13-1 shot advantage in the first period.

The second half, though, saw FPD’s offense piece together two goals, with the winning score coming off the foot of Brooke Battson with 10 minutes to play in regulation.

Ramirez added insurance late in the second period with a goal off an assist from Battson with two minutes to go in the game.

FPD outshot the Lady Cavaliers 25-3 and senior keeper Claire Crawford picked up three saves in the shutout effort.

The Lady Vikings have outscored opponents 9-2 in two games during the state playoffs.
