Weiser girls soccer putting up big numbers, wins as postseason draws near
WEISER, Idaho (KBOI) —
After winning the 2015 3A girls soccer title, Weiser was prepared to start 2016 off right.
Instead they started with two-time defending 5A champ Centennial.
The Wolverines lost 7-0.
"Just getting beat, I think it started us on a better level," senior Lauren Bouvia said. "That there is better competition out there and that's what we are going to have to prepare for."
And since that loss it's been all wins for Wesier.
"They do have a switch," head coach Sharona Olsen said.
As of Tuesday. Weiser has reeled off 13 straight wins. The Wolverines are outscoring their opponents 139 to 11 in those victories.
Bouvia has scored 71 of those goals, one year after leading the nation with 127.
"We've gotten a lot of new talent this year so we have a lot of offensive, quick and athletic players," she said.
With a 13-1 mark and the regular season wrapping up on Thursday, the postseason is nearing once again.
"It's not an expectation but it definitely is a goal to make it to the state championship," Olsen said.
While the Wolverines have been there before, there will still be some butterflies.
"That's what fuels us," Bouvia said. "It's something to look forward to. It's good nerves."
The 3A state tournament runs Oct. 20-22 at Sunway Soccer Complex in Twin Falls.
