The Nouvel Girl’s Varsity Soccer team is doing exceptionally well this season, clenching the top spot in the TVC West with an overall record of 7-2-2.

In their recent matchup against Millington, the Lady Panthers came out the gate strong, scoring three goals in the first seven minutes of the opening whistle. Sterling Solek and Iris Patel each scored two goals apiece for Nouvel; with Mackenzie Sprague contributing a single. “Our defense and goaltending continue to be our greatest strength, as today’s score shows,” Nouvel coach Matthew Solek commented. “It can be hard to get an offense rolling in the rain but we passed well near the crease today and it aid off. We are now headed into a hard part of the schedule. It’s good to have some momentum.”

Their previous matchups versus Hemlock (May 6th) and Standish (May 9); resulted in shutout victories for both. Coached by Matt Solek, the team is is led by ten returning Seniors, including captains Alexis Yatch, Sterling Solek and Mackenzie Sprague as well as Junior captain Iris Patel.

The Panthers will face the undefeated Valley Lutheran Chargers on May 21st. After a tie in their earlier season face off, the game will decide the Tri-Valley Conference championship.

Said fellow Junior Emilee Rosenberg, “We’re doing very well and putting in a lot of work for this season,  we’re working well as a team.”

Nouvel will play against Heritage tonight, at 7:30 P.M. under the lights at the Saginaw Soccer Complex.
