South Valley, Utah - The fall high school girls soccer season has come to an end for most of the south valley teams. Herriman and Summit Academy qualified for their state tournaments, and Riverton fell just short. The teams and their alumni accomplished great things this year.


Summit Academy

The Bears finished their season with a 8-1-1 record. They played Parowan in the first round of the state tournament Oct. 2 and were able to pull out a 2-1 victory. The first half of that game ended in a scoreless tie. Parowan had marked the third leading scorer in the state and Bears forward, Ryann Timm, very well in the first half.

A small change in the offensive strategy by first-year head coach Trevor Ott helped lead the Bears to the first-round victory. Ott moved Timm to a wing and asked his faster players to break down the center hoping the defense would collapse to the center opening up the outside for his high powered shot taker.

Timm, a senior, scored 31 goals in the regular season. In only 14 games that is a 2.2 goals per game average. 

The Bears faced Manti in the second round of the tournament Oct. 15 in Manti. They escaped the number one seed with a 3-2 overtime victory. The Bears are scheduled to face Rowland Hall Oct. 21 in the quarterfinals at Jordan High School. The championship game is scheduled for the following day, Oct. 22 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy (both games after press deadline.)

Herriman High School 

The Mustangs finished third in Region 4 this season with a 7-5 record. They qualified for the state tournament and faced Weber in round one. They lost 5-1againt the powerful Warriors team. Weber lost in the championship game to Davis last season.

Senior Kaylee Holt scored the team’s only goal in the first half, and Herriman trailed 2-1, but three goals in the second half knocked the Mustangs from the playoffs.

Holt led the Mustangs in scoring this season with 18 goals and four assists. Junior Cassidy Adams was second on the team with five goals. Holt was also awarded an Academic All-state award by the Utah High School Activities Association. 

The Mustangs stumbled toward the finish of their season. They lost four of their final six games. Despite the struggles at the end of the year, they did defeat Riverton, their rivals, twice 4-3 and 4-0.


Riverton High School

The Silverwolves struggled throughout the season despite winning three of their first four games. The Silverwolves lost their season opener to Bingham 4-0, but then defeated Kearns 8-0, West 5-1 and West Jordan 4-3. 

The Silverwolves’ scoring leader was freshman Hailey Burt, who had nine goals this season. The Silverwolves only scored 29 goals while allowing 60. They failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second straight season.

The Silverwolves were a young team. They only had seven seniors on the entire roster. Several underclassmen played important roles on this year’s team.


Alumni

Former Riverton and Herriman high school players are playing significant roles with their collegiate teams. Riverton’s Hailey Skolmoski leads the Pac-12 in scoring with 10 goals for the University of Utah and Darian Jenkins had seven goals before she hurt her knee for UCLA. Herriman graduate Darian McCloy leads Dixie State with nine goals. Tori Washington is also on the Dixie State roster.
