HHS wins, ties record

The Hays High girls’ soccer team is starting to reach uncharted territory.

Last week, junior striker Taylor Herman broke the single-season scoring record, and on Tuesday, the Indians tied the record for most wins in a season.

The best regularseason record in Indian history was 12-4. This year’s team is 12-3 and still has a game Thursday versus Salina Central at home.

“It speaks volumes about the girls, how well they play together and how much they believe in each other out there on the field,” said Indian coach Chris Michaelis.

Hays High achieved its 12-win mark when it defeated Newton 2-1 in double overtime Tuesday at HHS Field.

Though Newton is just 3-10-2, the Railroaders played good defense.

The Indians controlled the ball for most of the game and had 16 shots on goal, while Newton had two.

However, the Railers kept the Indians out of easy scoring position.

“They are probably the best defensive team I’ve seen so far this year,” Michaelis said.

Newton got on the scoreboard first when senior Valeria Davalos received a cross and kicked it into the goal in the 48th minute.
Herman responded seven minutes later. Herman had the ball near the corner of the field and drove it towards the goal.

Though she only had a narrow window, she kicked it from the side to the far right corner over the outstretched hands of Newton junior goalkeeper Kelsi Langley.

The goal was her 16th of the season.

“Taylor decided to take that shot and hit it with pace and it went through the goalie’s hands,” Michaelis said. “It was a heck of a shot by Taylor.”

The next score didn’t come until the second overtime, when junior Shelby Dinkel received a pass off junior Bree Kiser’s knee and shot a high arcing shot from 25 yards out in the 93rd minute.

The ball went right below the crossbar over the hands of the goalkeeper to secure the victory for Hays High.

“When a lot of us shoot, we just kind of have this feeling, and I had that feeling that ‘Oh, this is the one,’ kind of feeling,” Dinkel said.

The Indians have won eight consecutive matches and will play Salina Central at 4 p.m. Thursday at HHS Field.
