Five Douglas Tigers on all-league soccer team
November 19, 2016
Five Douglas Tigers received first-team recognition on the recently announced all-Sierra League girls soccer team.
Sydney Woodward was selected as a defender, along with midfielder Abby Jens, forwards Alexa Moss and Peri Buck as well as goalkeeper Grace Brooks.
Douglas finished with a 10-8-1 season record, capped by a 2-1 double overtime loss against McQueen in the first round of the playoffs.
Douglas was solid on the defensive end all season, allowing only 23 goals overall and 15 goals in 16 league games. The Tigers only scored three goals in their final eight games — they were 1-7 after Oct. 4 — due in large part to injuries sustained by Buck, Moss and Jens.
Midfielder Macy Weston and defender Payson Coverley received second-team recognition. Seniors Hannah Mora and Bailey Robinson were on the honorable mention list.
Douglas had no selections to the boys all-league soccer list.
