FSHS soccer falls to BVSW

May 11, 2012


— Katie Sarraf scored Free State’s only goal in a 3-1 high school soccer loss Thursday at Blue Valley Southwest.

“We got rattled a little bit, so we didn’t play our game,” FSHS coach Kelly Barah said. “We gave up some goals we usually don’t. But all in all, we’re excited to start the playoffs next week and see how far we can go.”

The Firebirds (10-4-2) likely will host a first-round playoff game Tuesday against a to-be-determined foe.

Not only likely, but a certainity that Free State will host a first round home game. The top four teams in 6A Central Regional are Wasthburn Rural at 14-1-1, Manhattan at 13-2-1 (assuming they play to form), Junction City at 11-4-1.

Free State will probably host Leavenworth which they defeated earlier this year 9-1. Gardner-Edgerton might have a better record, but it is hard to find out their record. Free State played them earlier this year and won 2-0. Topeka and Lawrence High round out the regional bracket. Lawrence will probably play Washburn Rural at their place.

Had FS won 1 of their last two games, they would have moved into #3 and set up potential 2nd round game with Manhattan. As is, they potentially could play Washburn Rural, unless Lawrence High knocks-off Rural, which would be great for the LHS program and make the regional final an all Lawrence affair, likely to be played at Free State.

Just discovered that Gardner-Edgerton has a published final record of 5-11. That means they are in a tie with Leavenworth. Seeding would be determined by head-to-head record, if not then a coin flip.

The winner of tonight's LHS - Topeka High game will likely play their first game at Manhattan. Difficult to tell.

how did the flow of the game go? Did SW dominate? Did FS have more chances but couldnt finish? anyone who went know?

Free State misses Coach Pendleton. He coached his ladies up and down the field and was very encouraging. To some in Law he was a jerk but he can flat out coach. Fresh legs is the easiest way to defeat FS. SW remained strong throughout game and had many shots off the posts.

So Free State Girls Soccer posts back to back 10 win seasons (first time ever) and the coach is bad? I'd hate to see Real Deal's comments when they have a losing season. Judging by the amount of comments you made on HS girls soccer you're obviously an angry parent with an axe to grind. Great example for your child getting on a forum and tearing up a winning team/coach.
