Canyon Ridge 4, Community School 4
SUN VALLEY – One year ago, Community School girls soccer strolled into Twin Falls with a perfect 11-0 record. The small school from the north was looking to knock off a talented Canyon Ridge team that looked capable of making a deep run in the 4A state tournament.
Instead, the Cutthroats were pounded by a score of 5-1. Head coach Kelly Feldman called the game, which turned out to be her team’s lone loss until the 3A state championship game, “the turning point.”
This time around, with most of its key players returning, Community School played the Riverhawks to a 4-4 draw to move to 7-0-1 on the season.
Lily Fitzgerald scored two goals for the Cutthroats, and Ella Viesturs and Kate Weatherholtz each added a goal.
The Riverhawks, on the other hand, are looking to replace a talented senior class this season. They’ve started conference play 2-1 with two blowout wins over Minico and Burley and a shutout at the hands of Wood River. On Saturday, standout senior Caitlin Crist scored two goals, and Ashley Conrad and Kali Crawford each scored one.
Canyon Ridge next travels to Jerome for a Great Basin Conference matchup on Monday. Community School hosts Filer in a High Desert Conference match Tuesday.
