While the IC Catholic Prep girls soccer team lost its Metro Suburban Conference Blue Division opener to Wheaton Academy, coach Antonio Godinez took some positives out of the contest.

The Knights dropped a 4-1 decision to Wheaton Academy. Bella Leslie scored IC Catholic Prep’s only goal on an assist from Olivia Hurt. The Knights also lost a recent 4-0 non-conference game to Providence Catholic.

“The girls have started believing in the capacity they have as a group,” said Godinez. “They work really well as a group. Despite not winning against Wheaton Academy, it was our best performance of the season so far. The girls came together as a team. They believe in the work they have put in the last month. I’m excited about their performance recently.”

The Knights took some time off over the recent spring break week. “This team has shown a lot of progress since I took over two or three months ago,” said Godinez. “Thy can see the growth and the progress from the work they have put in as a group.”

Godinez cited recent strong play from Leslie, a sophomore, Hurt, a junior, and senior Grace Fuller. Leslie, Hurt and Fuller are the team captains. “They have done a tremendous job leading this group,” said Godinez.

Godinez also had high praise for Knights goalie Rochelle Spizzirri. “Rochelle has done really well for us,” the coach said.

The Knights were 2-3 overall through late last week. IC Catholic Prep was slated to face Elgin St. Edward earlier this week and will continue a busy week with games against Riverside-Brookfield and Aurora Central Catholic (today in Aurora), as well as kicking off the Pepsi Showdown on Saturday.
