The St. Luke’s girls varsity soccer team continued its perfect start to the season with wins over Sacred Heart on Monday, Sept. 27, and King School on Thursday, Sept. 30.
The Storm improved to 6-0 for the season after a 3-1 win against the Tigers and a 4-0 victory against the Vikings.
GVS welcomed Sacred Heart to the Hilltop for a huge FAA contest. A goal from St. Luke’s freshman Lena Olbrys gave the Storm an early advantage, but the Tigers hit back before halftime to make it a 1-1 game. The Storm responded in the second period. Goals from Ali Gall ‘22 and Sarah Lau ‘24 were enough to seal the win for St. Luke’s and continue the team’s unbeaten start to the season.
A couple of days after the Sacred Heart win, St. Luke’s hosted King School and produced a magnificent first-half performance. Senior captain Layla Magnusen opened the scoring with a superb strike from outside the box, before Cam Nelson ‘25 produced a stunning finish to make it 2-0. Sarah Lau added the third goal, before Ale Lewis ‘23 completed the scoring just before halftime.
Head coach Dan Clarke was thrilled with the two results: “It has been another good week, with two extremely important results. We have some tough games ahead, so we have to continue to work hard during practice to give ourselves the best opportunity to achieve our goals and continue our winning streak.”
