It has already been a very fun and rewarding season for coach Andrea Wilson and the Lady Indian soccer team, last night the fun continued. The Lady Indians welcomed the Wapahani Lady Raiders to Fisher Field for what turned into a very competitive match. Ole Miss got knocked on their heels early in the match trailing at the halftime break 3-1. In the second half, Junior Lia Luchetti led the charge propelling the Indians to a 5-3 victory over the Lady Raiders. Savannah Herrera had two saves in goal that proved to crucial down the stretch. The scorers last night for Ole Miss were Michaela Cook with one, Audrey Spencer with one, and Lia Luchetti scored three goals last night, the third goal allowed her to surpass Kayla Webb for the all time single season scoring record. Webb previously held the record at 26, Luchetti now holds the record at 27. Luchetti ranks 4th in the state and 6th in the country among high school girls soccer players in scoring, she also is nominated for an opportunity to be the MaxPreps player of the week.
